Strengths:    _Good traction, preditable at high speed
_puncture resistance.
_Solid grip in corners
_Low rolling resistance

Weaknesses:    Wet, muddy condition.

Bottom Line:   
Run them in front. I run 2.35 in front and Ritchey Elavader in rear. This is one of my favorite front tire for dry season riding. It coners and grips very well.

On downhill, just pick your line and the tire will hold and stays on the line.
Climbing is great with these tire, it grips very well. I have ridden this tire in Saratoga Gap and Fremont Older. Both trails have great fast downhill and medium long climbs. It holds up in all condition except for wet and muddy conditions.
Most importantly, this tire increasing your confidence. As a mountain biker, what's more fun than riding you favorite trail on your bike and have the confidence to do it.

Strengths:    These tires roll great. They are very fast on dry hardpacked and are also great at absorbing shocks. I run a 2.1 on the front and a 2.0 on the back.

Weaknesses:    Any time you leave dry hardpacked. These are completely unuseable in any moisture or soft stuff.

Bottom Line:   
Great dry tire, but I am not sure that that is a hard thing to do?

I am going to try the 2.35s on my other bike if I have the $ to do it.

Highly recomended if you live somewhere that it does not rain, except the desert, because they do not work well in sand.

Ofcourse if you have two sets of wheels and/or like changing your tire with the weather, go for them. I really like riding the tires in the dry.
