Strengths: absorbs shock nicely; soaks up hits
Weaknesses: poor mud clearence
My first time out with this tire was very impressive. Its aggressive, fast and stable on hard pack dry terrain. Very flexible when it comes to cornering. The interlocking knobs give a nice feeling of control, and the added traction makes any technical trail feel like a breeze. You cant go wrong with this tire.
I would prefer the MRC high compound Python, but i searched high and low and couldnt find them in stock anywhere. I think they're discontinued???
One drawback about this tire is that the interlocking knobs are so tight that it makes for poor mud clearence. I live in the northeast where things tend to get soggy, but for all around performance this tire gets the job done.
