Strength:

Good breaking, fast rolling

Weakness:

NO Sidebite.

Forget tight turns, cause you won't make them. Side bite is really really bad. But braking is great and they are a fast tire. Not good on trails.

Strength:

Cheap, rolls okay

Weakness:

cant get any bite in tight turns. First race, I go down on the fastest hill. Heavy Wire bead

These tires are alright if you ride on the road, and the surface is somewhat tacky, but otherwise, forget em! They have no cornering bite at all. Get some Mythos XCs, or anything kevlar for that matter. You will appreciat the weight savings and ease to change flats.

Strength:

Low price
Good for light off-road and level hard-pack/pavement.

Weakness:

Not single-track worthy
Wears relatively fast

This tire is ok for what it is. It does not excel at any particular type of surface. Its profile is too round for the side knobs to ever make significant contact with the ground surface, and therefore traction is mediocre at best. It came with the bike, but I would definitely never go out and buy it on my own. There are many other better tires out there.

Wesley   Cross Country Rider [May 14, 2002]
Strength:

The best gripping tire I've ridden on hardpack climbs

Weakness:

Rolling resistance (slow), turning

This tire is awesome if you use it for what it is intended for. Hands down the best gripping tire I've used on hardpack/ medpack conditions. Not a great mult-purpose tire and not great on tight turns (but not as bad as other reviews have stated). If conditions are dry and you want to impress your riding buddies throw this tire on. If you want to run the gammet of conditions get the Hutch. Alligator.
