Product Description

The Rock Hawk from CST features an aggressive tread pattern with large, well-spaced lugs. This spacing allows the tire to shed mud and other debris on mountain bike trails with varying conditions. In order to help reduce rolling resistance, the center knobs have been ramped. The Rock Hawk is available with a wire bead or folding bead with EPS puncture protection.

Strengths:    Durability. I ride a lot of miles on hard SoCal rocks. I keep track of how long my tires last. Prior to this, all my tires lasted 850 miles. The RockHawk doubled this! They lasted forever.

Great grip, they climb like a goat and grip the corners like crazy.

A great tire if you ride hard

Weaknesses:    The same thing that makes them great is their weakness. They grip the trail. These are not XC race tires , so they are a tad slow

Bottom Line:   
I love CST tires! Why pay $60 for a tire? I have tried many of their offerings, this is the best so far.

Do yourself a favor, try this tire. You won't be disappointed

Strengths:    Great traction, handle abuse, rare punctures, roll pretty well, look great.

Weaknesses:    A little heavy, hard to bead up on tubeless..

Bottom Line:   
Really like these tires, run a 29 by 2.4 up front and 29 by 2.25 rear. Run the folding in a tubeless configuration (Very hard to get these to bead, once beaded, not a single problem) Been running these tires 2 mo's (25 miles per week) and tread still looks new(by contrast, trashed a set of Conti Xkings in 3 months) these tires havr great traction, I can really lean the bike in turns. As a matter of fact, had get used to how sharp these turn in. So far they hv Been great all around tires, gravel, rock gardens, dusty loose trails, and mud. They have handled everything I have thrown at them. Paid 60.00 for "both" including shipping, a great price. While just slightly heavier than most comparable tires, these tires can handle some abuse, not a puncture yet. One drawback is These tires throw alot of rocks. Overall, very very happy with my Rockhawks. Great bang for the buck
