Strengths:    Excellent hook up in mud, in shist (loose sandy), and on hardpack. This is becoming my all time favorite tire.

Weaknesses:    A big on the heavy side but it rolls easy and hooks up well.

Bottom Line:   
This tire rolls fast, hooks up in nearly any condition, and is dirt cheap. The only tire I've used that can come close is the S-works Roll X Race at over twice the price. I'm really particular about my tires and this one doesn't let me down. I also like knowing that others pass it up because its a Performance product. Try it and love it.

Strengths:    GOOD ALL AROUD GRIP. (I USED THIS TO RUN THROUGH MUD AND WET CONDITIONS AND IT HOOKS UP WELL.)

Weaknesses:    DOESN,T RUN SMOOTH ON ASPHALT.

Bottom Line:   
THIS IS PROBABLY MY FAVORITE TIRE TO RUN THRU MESSY CONDITIONS. STAYS CLEAN RUNNING THROUGH MUD AND MUCK. FOR THE PRICE I DO NOT I'VE SEEN A TIRE THAT CAN TOUCH IT IN MUDDY CONDITIONS.

Strengths:    Toughness-handling-looks!!-580 grams 1.95 NObody else running them!!!!!!!!!! Nice all black tire with a small yellow 2" X 1" rectangle with black "XC" printed inside. The rectangle is on one side. Very sleeper!!

Weaknesses:    none yet

Bottom Line:   
For the Money this tire is a sleeper. I would definitley recommend it! I just rode through some construction mud which had two weeks of rain on it. My geax 1.85 went right through it on my Specialized stumpy pro. I was curious as to how these would handle it on the GT. They went through it, maybe better than the Geax's!! I think these will be a great all around tire to be used all summer and into the wet fall. I running this in the rear paired to a Panaracer fire xc pro 2.10 up front and this combo rocks! If you look at the two tread patterns they really look like a nice moto-cross setup!!
