    Strengths:    Volume, rolld well, great sealing bead for Tubeless.

    Weaknesses:    Tread life.

    Bottom Line:   
    This would be a great tire but I have destroyed the cornering knobs in just over 2 weeks. They are all chewed to hell and It literally has been 19 days since I purchased it.

    I really dug this tire at first... I love the volume, I love that it holds air really well, I love that it rolls fast... but for $50 I should have gotten several months out of this tire. I've had Kendas last me an entire season of racing/training.

    I'd give it 1 and 1... but because we are relatively rocky around here... I'll give it 2 on the overall. Still 1 on value because it was way overpriced even for an ultra durable tire.

    Strengths:    sticks like a son of a gun in socal hardpack. Hands down these are my favorite tires. My favorites used to be the bontrager xrs.. But these tires just work so much better for hardpack.. You can slide this tires on purpose while pedaling in a corner and the sliding is very minimal and predicatable

    Weaknesses:    Just a tad bit heavy for xc race use. Tubeless version is very hard. 25psi felt like 40psi

    Bottom Line:   
    my new favorite tire. I only gave it a value rating of 3 because tires should not cost 50 bucks! None of em.
