Date Reviewed: January 2, 2007

Strengths:    Strong tire, won't get off the rim even if completelly flat. Great traction, climbs everything, especially those slippery marble rocks
Strong as hell, even in those sharp rocky trail surfaces of Ymmitos mountain (where cyclist friends cannot go)


Weaknesses:    If you've got a normal small lever, you'll find it hard to get this tire on & off the rim. On the other hand this is a safety measure, nobody's fancy a tire derailling under speed.
Not for the heretic (grammarophobic XC i-wanna-be-a-racer)


Bottom Line:   
This tire stll amazes me after more than 2 years of use. Still holding strong at ymmitos rocky trails.
Very reliable traction.
I can climb everything by just keeping on the efford.
Despite the weight and pattern it rolls really fast.
a Great Finnish product (these people are ahead -again - in technology).
Take care to use the right rim size (width), ok?

Strengths:    Excellent tire all round
Provided awesome grip on dh, as well as urban stuff like wall rides and dj.


Weaknesses:    Wear pretty quickly, probs a bit expensive uf you bought it after market. I'm not sure on that stuff though.

Bottom Line:   
Awesome tire and would reccomend it to anyone. Unfortunately, spends most of its time on concrete, so it wears down fast. Great for off road stuff though!!!
Buy it if youve got the cash, but if not, don't.

Strengths:    Does not wear to fast.

Weaknesses:    Not enough grip on rock.
No grip at all when wet


Bottom Line:   
An all-around tire useful if you intend to roll elsewhere than in an hardcore trail. It does not wear fast if your are carefull when breaking.

Not so bad for freeriding when the ground is dry. Forget it on rainy days. Slips on off-camber rocks even when dry.

Buy it if you are a freerider missing funds and tires. Avoid it if you can.
