    Strengths:    AMAZING with cornering. I have just started cross racing and these have been the best tyres so far for any slick course.

    Weaknesses:    none.

    Bottom Line:   
    Definitely the best tyres I have used in a racing situation. Best for cornering, whilst also still light.

    Strengths:    Light; corners great.

    Weaknesses:    none

    Bottom Line:   
    This is the best 'cross tire I've used. I thought I couldn't corner fast, until I got these. Doesn't get clogged with mud -- the knobs are big enough to grip through the slimy stuff, but small enough to go fast on the hardpack/pavement. Don't know about durability, I only use it for racing, where it shines. It's all black, which goes with anything, as opposed to some of those other colors.

    Strengths:    Light and good grip

    Weaknesses:    Look at it wrong and it flats

    Bottom Line:   
    These tires look good on paper - they are very light and have a good tread pattern. But do not take these tires off road. They will rip and flat every time. Every single time I took these off roading, they puntured or ripped. I wasn't even riding them on rough terrain. I have a buddy that bought the same tires at the same time. He has had the same problems. Don't buy these tires!
