Strengths:    Good volume , fast rolling

Weaknesses:    Leathal when wet

Bottom Line:   
They have let go too easily and too many times in slight damp conditions on hardpack , especially at some of the UK trail centers - probably ok in dry conditions but not a UK tyre.

Strengths:    I am on San Clemente Island temporarily and this tire is true to to their statement its smooth rolling on the road, great cornering, and gives great traction on the hard packed trails. It wouldn't perform very well in the mud, but for what I am riding it is the best tire.

Weaknesses:    It seems to wear quickly.

Bottom Line:   
If you are riding hard pack you'll love it.
