    Strengths:    fast rolling. best on hard pack and pavement. look cool

    Weaknesses:    a bit tricky in mud.

    Bottom Line:   
    this is the best tire I have found for riding hard pack and gravel, It rolls very fast on both hard pack and pavement. during summer we get little rain, the trails get hard with patches of sand where we ride. this tire has not let me down one bit. It climbs good and grips roots well. when it rains i switch to my geax blades. If you ride mud don't buy. if your looking for and good hard pack, xc, pavement tire this tire is for you.

    Strengths:    very fast tire it has almost no rolling resistance

    Weaknesses:    if you go into a shallow muddy cornor at speed all you can do is pray for your life

    Bottom Line:   
    this is a fast tire that cornors very well as long as you get up on the outer tread. you have to keep this in mind when cornoring in technical sections when shifting your weight around. If it's even alittle muddy and you come off the tread your in a world of hurt. this tire is best in dry conditions but if you have good insurance you can run them in the mud. overall I like the tire their fast and cornor great once you figure them out.

    Weaknesses:    they don't prefer wet & muddy conditions

    Bottom Line:   
    These are (as previously mentioned) best all-round XC tyres on market. 70% of competitors use them in World Cup - that tells you all ...

    Strengths:    Light, fast on pavement, foldable

    Weaknesses:    Bad grip specially on (wet) roots

    Bottom Line:   
    I use Boazobeana S in front and IRC Mythos XC in rear. Originally I had Boazobeana S in front & rear but changed the rear tyre because of the bad grip in hills and roots. Good tyre if you have to ride also in the city. If you do not ride in the city at all do not buy this tyre.

    Date Reviewed: November 21, 2001

    Strengths:    Fast, really FAST, quiet and also good looking. Great allround tire, from XC to city on wet city rock-roads

    Weaknesses:    A little bit hard to put on

    Bottom Line:   
    This tire series 'Boazobeana' is of great value. I'm wearing these on the rear wheel (in front Boazobeana X). This tire is very light with a very good grip. The friction is so low, that I was totally amazed, I bike weekdays to work and weekends XC, and in city I can use one step higher gear. Yearly it ends up to around 5.000 km.
    These are really for XC-allrounders. The joy of my biking came to a new level.
