Strengths:    lateral grip, wet weather/ dry traction

Weaknesses:    wears too easily

Bottom Line:   
Was raving about this from the last review, but after a few months I see too much wear! Must be the soft compound melting with the heat? knobs are now close to zero after the 3rd month. mind u, these tires ain't cheap!

Strengths:    I ride a silver bike with silver wheels - those stripes-

Weaknesses:    They wore out after 1.5 years ( thats 6 separate seasons around here). Dry pavement shaves these guys down real quick. The secound winter on em has been pretty scary.

Bottom Line:   
I wrote a longer one under the other heading for these guys.. here I'll say they were fun as long as they lasted but when you have 2 sets of wheels to switch around for different conditions you should get more then 1.5 years before you start slideing sideways more than trackin front ways. Forget mud to test a tire try shiny ice on a downhill. We wear padded gloves for more then warmth. They suggest 25 -9 lbs for racin but I usually kept em @ 39+ lbs nitrogen & they held that for months. Now I'm shoppin for something just short of studs..
