Strengths:    Its good for a little bit of uphill, hardpack and on the road you have a little bit of noise but it also runs well!

Weaknesses:    not good on sand or wet of any kind!
Too thin. Like a 1.90-1.95

Bottom Line:   
This review is for the Ritchey Intuition Comp 2.0. I dont like this tire at all! When i have braked on the road most of the times was locking. Offroad i dont have any side grip and on the sand and mud(wasnt made fot it)it was digging its self in. If you go with some speed on sand the tire is unstable, and you loose all the momentum. The Kenda tire was 1000 times better than this. With that I did uphills, downhills, road (wet/dry), Hardpack, sand, mud(deep/normal) and had no problem at all.

Strengths:    Grips, rolls easily, does not seem fragile, not flats yet, very lightweight, look good, have the right tread pattern that doesn't pickup sticks and throw them into the frame like some other tires do.

Weaknesses:    None so far, don't expect any

Bottom Line:   
I have been using the Ritchey WCS tires since the MountainKlein came in 1987 and have always loved them because they hang on and are lighter than everyone else's, but they can be a bit hard to find.
