Strengths:    Very low rolling resistance, hooks up well on turns, climbs well, excellent wear. This is a capable tyre in most dry conditions.

Weaknesses:    struggles a bit in wet conditions, especially wet rocks or roots

Bottom Line:   
These are one of my favourite tyres...they're a grippy, light and fast. they seem to handle most dry track conditions without too much fuss. Not great on wet rocks or roots, but possibly better than the eskar's I'm currently running. If you're looking for an all-round XC tyre that will still roll ok on the road and give plenty of wear then these are worth checking out.

Strengths:    Rolls smoothly, pretty quite tire, seems like a pretty good do it all tire, great on the streets and can definitely take on a few trails.

Weaknesses:    uphill dirt sections, during every single uphill section the rear tire will never have full traction and keeps slipping out. Be careful around fast corners in loose dirt the back WILL slide out.

Bottom Line:   
Good all around tire. tire doesn't seem to wear too bad but if you are looking for a tire to get a little crazy on the trail this is definitely not it.

Date Reviewed: April 23, 2008

Strengths:    VERY fast on roads, fairly quiet, makes climbing a snap, great coasting.

Weaknesses:    This tire was made for roads and LIGHT XC, not rooty/rocky trails.

Bottom Line:   
The front doesn't absorb rooty trails very well, and the rear will definitely kick out on you due to the lack of grip on rocks and roots. A fairly technical trail will definitely be a challenge with these tires. Expect to lose a bit of control. I plan on going with Maxxis Holy Rollers when these begin to slightly wear out. I need trail grip. That being said, this is an outstanding tire if you're going to be doing more street than trail riding.

Strengths:    Low rolling resistance, good for dry single track and street, tight wire bead

Weaknesses:    Pain to remove, tight wire bead

Bottom Line:   
This tire is great. I have the LK (low knob) version of this tire and it is absolutelly a charm out on the trail. When I do technical trails the tire hugs the rocks and doesn't slip. Jumps are easily absorbed by this tire as well without the worry of breaking it. I will definetly get the same tire again once this one is worn down. I do approx. 40/60 trail/street and this tire feature the best of both worlds.

Date Reviewed: July 25, 2007

Strengths:    Pretty good in the dry stuff, handles dusty dirt trails pretty well.

Weaknesses:    Slick on the wet stuff, esp. roots, trees etc. Rear tire likes to kick out. Does not clear mud well at all, which prevents it from hooking up when needed.

Bottom Line:   
An OK tire if all you ride is dry trails, but I wouldn't recommend it for much else, the tires came stock on the bike, and I plan to switch out as soon as possible.

Date Reviewed: April 30, 2007

Strengths:    Product shines on the front tire.

Weaknesses:    Rear tire sucks! I ride in loose terrain and this tire does not suite that at all.

Bottom Line:   
This is a great tire for entry level riders. But riders and espeacially racers will want a more confident tire that requires less negoitoting with the terrain.

Strengths:    Great XC tire - good combo of grip and little rolling resistance. Good puncture protection with kevlar i believe. Purple under layer which is revealled when the tire gets worn down

Weaknesses:    An absolute pain to remove off the wheel. A very tight fit

Bottom Line:   
Ideal tirefor XC! Horrible to remove but with the puncture protection of kevlar you wont need to. Retains grip after many miles, and is quite a fast tire. A great tire at a great price!
