Strengths:    Fast rolling, corners well on gravel, cheap

Weaknesses:    Tread not significant enough for grip on loose terrain.

Bottom Line:   
For its intended purpose this is a great tire. I use this as my gravel riding tire. It rolls fast on hard surfaces but has enough volume (actually measures 39mm wide) so that is has a comfortable ride when it gets a little bumpy. It has enough grip for general use, but you have to work it a bit on steep, loose climbs. The side knobs are small enough not to be a disadvantage on paved corners but big enough to give you more confidence and control cornering on loose surfaces.

I paid $20 each for these tires in a wire bead, and they were a great value, not too heavy either. The same tread pattern is now sold as the SPEED Ride, but with a Kevlar bead and puncture protection, and coming it at a lower weight. I would definitely recommend these for anyone considering gravel tires, as long as they can fit them on their bike.
