Strengths:    Great for road riding. Great traction conquering asphalt hills. Just okay on trails.

Weaknesses:    Barely any traction once I hit the trails.

Bottom Line:   
A good tire for what kind of riding I do. But if you are serious about off-road, invest in a different tire.

Strengths:    One word: GREAT!

Weaknesses:    Found none as of yet...

Bottom Line:   
It took me a while to get back on the saddle after I had a bad accident while using full slicks (on a road bike) that landed me in a hospital room for three days and having some dental work done on me.

I loved the idea (and only after 12 years had passed) of buying my first ever mountain bike. In this case my new mountain bike came with a pair of Specialized Rockster Sport Tires in which I've had no problems with so far. And after riding through a crapload of junk on the road, broken bottles, sharp-edged metal objects, gravel, simi-dried engine oil and water, and loose sand on the asphalt and other unavoidable mini landmine obstacles.

If more people heard of these tires called the Rockster Sports, they wouldn't think of getting full slicks ever again for their mountain bikes.

With a regain of full confidence I'm happy to say I'm back on the saddle, and loveing it!
