    Strengths:    Big side knob for good cornering, very fast rolling band, strong casing. Do not wear to fast.

    Weaknesses:    Weigth

    Bottom Line:   
    This is a review for the 26x2.3
    This is a downhill / DS tire. It has enormous side knob so you can corner with your gnees cleaning the floor ;-))
    The middle knob are very small so the rolling resistance is minimal. Result: These are really fast downhill tires. The casing do not look as strong as the intense FRO but I run them at low pressure some time and did not get any flat.
    If you intend to use them for hard core trail riding, keep in mind that they are a bit heavy (still much ligther than the intense FRO) and that as a rear tire, you get very little traction. I replace the rear tire when I go on the trails. The value rating reflect that my LBS is really espansive. You can find them for $15 cheaper on the web and they would get one more chill.
