Strengths:    Cheap, Light (for the size), Flat resitant

Weaknesses:    Slow Rolling, Poor Traction

Bottom Line:   
Cheap and long wearing and but not recommended just because of the poor traction. They really seem to struggle for traction and no matter how much I weighted the front wheel it was always sketchy on fast corners on anything other than hard pack i.e. slick rock

Strengths:    Everything - grippy in wet, dry, gravel, hardpack, over roots, rocks. Cheap as. Kevlar version (Factory) is damn light.

Weaknesses:    The dual wire casing version (Race) is a bit heavy, the naming scheme is a bit weird

Bottom Line:   
Good, cheap, no nonsense tire. If i was paying more than $50 i would just get Maxxis Minion DHF's or High Roller 40a's, but at $20 Aus for the kevlar and $25 for the dual wire freeride tyre (in 2.35 to 2.7), they are a an awesome deal. Predictable hookup in all conditions, only had one minor washout which was very easily recoverable, more than i can say for the Tioga Factory DH's which should have been good but weren't at all.

Strengths:    good price, good rubber, big sizes, sticky with front and rear specific treads.

Weaknesses:    havnt found one yet to be honest

Bottom Line:   
with a good price at 40 aus these are about half the price of the other tyres out there, they are pretty light and have a good stick-e compound, they have 2.35 and 2.5 and 2.7 inch in size which is not bad, they are fast rolling and quiet, they also have front and rear specific tread patterns.these are the best tyre ive used for a while, do your wallet a favour and surprise yourself with a set of good cheap tyres,which i thought just wernt around anymore.
