Strengths:    Nice and sticky compound, grips well in the wet stuff, very confidence inspiring.

Weaknesses:    The rubber casing is way too soft, I've shredded 3 rear tires in a season from flats, not getting pinch flats, but rocks are cutting the tire to bits and Stans is helpless.

Bottom Line:   
It's a good tire, however if you're riding in very rough rocky spots, bring a spare and be willing to replace it often.

Strengths:    Very large volume. Lot's of gripping power. Low pressures. Rolling resistance is Ok.

Weaknesses:    They pick up rocks and throw them. If the ground is the least bit moist the front tire throws small sand particles in my face.

Bottom Line:   
I had to buy a front fender and clip it on when going down hill because the front tire throws so much debris torward my face. I am a very light rider (150lbs) and I bought this tire to see if I can get some traction. It delivers in that department. I do ride some pavement sections and the sloped knobs combined with my light weight create low rolling resistance. I can easily run 20-25 psi and they feel like I am floating on air. These tires inspire confidence on big rocky downhills. I am more likely to go over rocks than around them with these tires.
