Strengths:    fast, very fast, grippy in the dry/wet tar, smooth, 100psi! these babies match a road tyre for speed

Weaknesses:    obvious being a total slick, no grip on grass, being on 1.25 - need to slow down for bumps otherwise snake eyes punctures

Bottom Line:   
these are the fastest mtb slick i've used, rolling resistance is virtually zero, great tyre for commuting but need to be gentle due to lack of volume... virtually no bump compliance
