The original free-country tire is proof that a great design is timeless. Since 1994 this tire has been the "go-to" choice for technical trail and XC riding.

Strengths:    This tire rolls really fast and climbs well. Does not wear that fast either. So if your a light riding than these are for you.

Weaknesses:    Anything loose or hard pack this tire does not grip at all. If you want to go fast and hit some good switch backs or need some grip for a rocky downhill these are not the tires you want. I am constantly checking my balance and the front end is always sliding out. Splurged and went for 2 schwable Hans Dampf and well worth it!!!

Bottom Line:   
I ride trails in Orange County and the rear tire for this set is pretty decent but the front tire in my opinion is just trash. I've been riding for over 15years and have never had a front tire that does not grip at all on the trails. And that's this tire. Spend the money and get good tires if your any kind of ride that likes to have fun.
