Strengths:    i think of this as more of a weekend warrior tyre, and for that it is great!, 45 - 50psi for commuting then drop it down to around 30psi and race around the trails, its not the best in the mud but that adds to the fun, it is quiet and very low rolling resistance, not to mention a pretty cheap tyre!

Weaknesses:    not the best in the mud but i would still buy this tyre again, it handles great on the tarmac / dirt aslong as its not too wet

Bottom Line:   
i think this tyre is amazing for the money, really targets the weekend warriors on a budget but who also commute on the same bike, with a simple PSI change i can go from fast rolling road bike to an all out dirt track king

bare in mind these are only £13 tyres ofc they aren't going to be the best in the world but for what you pay they are outstanding

Strengths:    Looks Good, Nice black color.

Weaknesses:    after 150 km both of them went flat.

Bottom Line:   
After 150 km (only Cross Country, grass terrain) both tires got some wood splinter. Schwalbe Black Jack states : "Puncture protection" - but I say don't trust them. If you have money go for any Kevlar tires.

Strengths:    Low rolling resistance with good grip on almost any terrain.

Weaknesses:    Mud, but the tire wasn't designed for that

Bottom Line:   
This tire is for everyone who wants a tire that fits the gap between the semislicks and knobby tires. It has low rolling resistance for road use and grip enought for dry cross country riding - hardpack, loose ofer hardpack, rocks, roots, grass,... almost anything. Great tire.

Strengths:    Grib in gravel, roots, rocks and grass is very good. Can be run at just 2 bars pressure, even at pavement and asphalt.

Weaknesses:    The rear wheel has its limits: In wet clay and mud it _will_ eventually pack and slide.

Bottom Line:   
Every tire has its limits and naturally so does this. As long as the trail isn't wet mud, though, this tire will bring you through almost any kind of landscape. I recently climbed in frosty grass with it and my _new_ set of tires performed very well w. lots of grib. A very good allround tire.

Bottom Line:   
Avoid the tire it is garbage.

One of the worst I've used in 15 yrs of mt biking... possibly the lamest since the Tioga Pyscho.

Slidey, low volume, gripless, gutless, etc. Light wieght is the only pro... might be good for riding around town, that is it.

Still searching for the mate to the Conti Vert Pro 2.3, which I'm running in the front... which is probably the best tire I've used since riding.
