    Strengths:    very wide, very grippy, good grip on all surfaces even wet sk8 parcs and ramps.and good on wet mud

    Weaknesses:    pinch flatted twice on 12ft stair drops when only landing 7ftish down em. And im running doubletracks which are spose to be un pinch flatable.

    Bottom Line:   
    dnt do drops on em to concrete cos they pinch flat other than that theyre the best if u can fit em

    Strengths:    Big
    Volume allows to run slightly lower P
    Tall
    Not extremely heavy


    Weaknesses:    Cornering is bad, $ if bought new.

    Bottom Line:   
    Good: These tires are great. The first thing I noticed, it makes landing much softer, tracks well.
    Bad: Cornering could be better. They just slide out under you. Feels like a big bubble, slopy.

    It's a great tirte for freeriding, didn't try it for dh yet, but I guess cornering will be a problem.

    Strengths:    This is THE tire for MUNI--mountain unicycling. It's huge volume lets you leap over obstacles. It's traction keeps you up when other tires let you down.

    Weaknesses:    Yeah, it's heavy. But the best alternative is the Dyno 24 by 3, and they haven't made it for a long time.

    Bottom Line:   
    The very best for off-road unicycling.

    Strengths:    noway will u get stuck in mud it just glides along the top, looks the buisness on a fully beefed up planet-x jumpbike

    Weaknesses:    NEVER put one on the front wheels it makes the bike handle like a peice of cr4p!.

    Bottom Line:   
    only use the tire on the back, only use when downhilling, only use when wet or really knarley, never use uphill, never try and change tires!
    this trye kept me alive in morzine whehe most bike were getting stuck i paced it past, no punctures ither. maybe a bit too heavy for a pro.
    5 flaming chillies if use in the correct circumstances!

    Strengths:    It's real big and can take a pounding and ask for more.

    Weaknesses:    It's kinda sloppy but that can only be expected for a 3 inch tire. It's real heavy to but, hey it will just make you stronger.

    Bottom Line:   
    It's a real good tire if you freeride and have a frame large enough for it. It not a XC tire and thats why it's good 8)

    Date Reviewed: December 7, 2001

    Strengths:    Big+fat+chunky. Makes your bike look like one hell of a beefcake. you can hear everyone you pass commenting on the size of it. More of a winter/muddy grippy tyre.

    Weaknesses:    (on front wheel) turns like a dead hippo. Probably really heavy, but you can`t feel it unless you really concerned about weight. You can`t always fit `em in frames. If you`re taking the tyre off, check that you don`t leave any tools in the tyre berfore you put it back on. A bit slow for dirtjumping though.

    Bottom Line:   
    Wicked ass beefy looking tyre with loads of grip.
