    Strengths:    Good commuter/around town tyre
    also usable on dirt roads or when there is a little snow

    Weaknesses:    not glass proof (what is?)
    not suitable for "real" off road riding (neither is my commuter bike)
    does not look as cool as some slicks

    Bottom Line:   
    This is a good tire for getting around town and riding areas where real off road capability is not needed. It rolls well and keeps going on dirt roads or a bit of snow. I'd stay away from mud and rocky trails.

    Strengths:    -Low resistance, for speedy move over asphalt, cemen trail.
    -Lightweight coz of its size

    Weaknesses:    less grip on wet surface, easily skids when braking on wet surface.

    Bottom Line:   
    Want speed on urban streets, this is your tire. Can handle little off-road trail, not an ideal tire for the rainy season.

    Strengths:    Low rolling resistance

    Weaknesses:    Broke from inside. After one thread had broken, more and more threads broke (during one hour in Vätternrundan) and finally inner tube popped out. There was still plenty of rubber left after one year and 6000 km.

    Bottom Line:   
    Ok, but cannot be trusted for long trips. Maybe i'll use these in the future and carry foldable spare tire.

    This tire is great for amateures who don't really need a recing tire but still wants to ride fast. The tire works in principally any type of terain, though the grip ain't to good in mud.

    Strengths:    runs ok and fast. squeals quite nicely on asphalt:)
    Its important to let peaple know, Im coming in my job:)
    long last

    Weaknesses:    slippery ´when raining, eaven on the asphalt, concrete, especially medieval old-town streets with paved surface.

    Bottom Line:   

    I recommend not to useis tire front, especially when you drive fast in any conditions, like rain, it does not grip well at all, especially when street is little dirty.

    use maxxis wormdrive in front, it is much better.

    + Low rolling resistance
    + Light

    - Slippery on wet grass
    - Slippery on ice

    Bottom Line:   
    This is a MTB compatible tire, but it is not meant to soft or muddy terrains. However it works very well on road and city conditions. Rolling resistance on asphalt or any smooth surface is in a road race class. Before you buy this product, think what kind of a biker you are. If you ride mostly on roads, this may fit your bike well. For my use this has proved to be a good tire. For that reason I give it full five chilis.
