Strengths:    Light weight, super fast on dry pack (only for dry trails)

Weaknesses:    some troubles with install

Bottom Line:   
best tire I've ever ride. Fastest tire with perfect cornering. For dry terrain is the best. On wet drypack not so good but give confidence too. Not so good on asphalt, but it's not a slick tyre.Very flat resistable. BEST LEGENDARY RACE TYRE.

Strengths:    Light wieght, super fast on the trails, handles great, dry pack trails only.

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
I was amazed at my first ride out with these tires. They roll so fast and corner like your on rails. You'll definitly be faster so be careful on the first time out. I'm using these tires with tubes and running 40 psi in them and can't say enough good things about them.

Strengths:    4 ply casing - True, UST tubeless standard - easy to deal with on the trail.

Weaknesses:    It won't install it's self..?

Bottom Line:   
Expensive... but, if you race - this is the tire. EXCEPTIONAL cornering!!! I'm 160lbs, I run these at the recommended 29 psi. even commuting 12 miles from home - THESE ARE the fastest, meanest cornering tires you can put on your bike. I put them on another customer's bike who just got into the sport and he told me that he has to think 20' further ahead 'cause they are so fast!

Strengths:    Best corning tire ever. I mean ever!

Weaknesses:    None that I can fine. Not the best for ruff out West riding

Bottom Line:   
I have used Hutchinsons Pythons for about 3 years. I just got the new generation. They seem to hold the corner the same as the old one. There is supposted to be different rubber compounds on the inner and outter tread. I will write back in 2 months with a update on tread wear and general likability. Dave

Hutchinson Python MRC High 2.3?

The old pythons were well liked but a little fragile and skinny. Wonder if the 2.3 with the larger tread are a better compomise? Has anybody had their hands on the "new generation" python tires?Read More »
