Strengths:    Fasst! Ust bead,thick punture resist,corners well,reliable,good allrounder,can be aired down Very low for large footprint with no sidewall roll because it is so low profile and thick, 15psi and therefore works well in sand.climbs well and decend well.Feels lighter than it is.

Weaknesses:    claimed weight is 550gm actual is 600 and 640gm.wears fast or else I ride more than I thought!

Submitted by Aaron Clark a Racer from Rangiora, New Zealand

Date Reviewed: November 3, 2004

Strengths:    Very light tyre for tubeless. 1.75" size is closer to 1.9". Even in light mud, this tyre is great for climbing with the right air pressure. I have raced on these tyres for over a year, with no inclination at all to take them off my race bike.

Weaknesses:    None so far, hasn't punctured or cut up like my previous Michelin's did.

Bottom Line:   
If you want a good multi-purpose XC tyre, that will resist punctures (I run Stan's too), is very light weight for UST, and rolls nicely while providing surprising levels of grip, go for it. This tyre makes other offerings that cost 30-40% more look silly.
