    Strength:

    It rolls very well on tarmac and dry soil.

    Weakness:

    It lost its traction on wet soil, mire

    It’s dependable on tarmac and dry soil but the worst thing will happen when you meet the wet soil, mire or the wet rooty section of the track. Not recommended for AM but works very well for the weekend warrior like me. :D

    Strength:

    Accelerate very fast. Climbs great. Best on rocky hardpack, but have also proven capable on soggy ruts. I use them on a single speed rigid mtb and have had great results. I use a tire liner for flat protection and run @ 80 psi.

    Weakness:

    Not great on sand.

    I will never go back to FAT tires again. Being able to climb like this makes my rides much more fun.

    Strength:

    Smooth ride on pavement.

    Weakness:

    Weak side walls. Too many flats for the miles and surfaces I have ridden on.

    This woould be a good tire if you ride it only on paved or really well groomed trails. If you take it off those you run the rsk of having a side wall go out on you, like I did. These tires have been the only downside to this bike.

    Strength:

    Absolutely the best race tire, providing you know how to ride a bike. Lightest useable tire you're going to find anywhere. Incredible speed due to exceptionally low rolling resistance. Excellent traction except in wet mud, but hey, nothing gets traction in wet mud. I'm buying extra sets just in cse they stop making them.

    Weakness:

    Sure they might slide around a bit in the crners, but once the side knobs dig in, your bike is on rails until you release yourself out of the turn. Sure you might get a flat riding over glass, but why the hell would you want to ride over glass?

    Exceptionally fast, light high performance tire.

    Strength:

    None to speak of.

    Weakness:

    Shiatty tire. I kept the pressure between 70-75lbs, rode them mostly on asphalt with a small daily dose of hardpack, and the sidewall blew out where the bead meets the nylon/rubber crap. Do not spend a dime on this junk.

    As stated above - these tires are bottom-feeders. I've never had ANY tire give way as quickly as these. Matter of fact, I've never had a tire this shiatty - EVER. Kenda has a lot of work to do in order to gain any traction in this part of the market. Pun intended.

    Strength:

    It was free, that's the only reason it's on my bike. The sidewall blew off my old tire in the middle of a tour, and someone was kind enough to give me this one.

    Weakness:

    Flats. Lots of flats. Poor grip on anything wet. I can make my back tire spin out on level ground.

    Don't buy these unless the ground you're riding on is perfectly dry without debris. Where I'm from, if you have to dodge glass to avoid flats, then you can't really ride anywhere. Glass has an amazing ability to hide in the gravel that's thrown on icy streets. Traction is terrible. I would be very angry if I'd spent one cent on this. The guy who gave me mine must've been chuckling.

    Strength:

    came with cyclocrosser, kona jake the snake. Didnt realize how good they were til I replaced them with some Geax Reverts.

    Weakness:

    Would like to see a wider version for cyclocrossing

    Cyclocrossers! this is a decent tire that grips way better than it has a right to when using it off-road. Its fast on pavement and has just enuff knob to do it off road. Great "thin" tire.

    Strength:

    Good on hardpacked ground and open fire trails

    Weakness:

    Lousy on rocky ground (like creek beds). I've shredded rear sidewalls twice on fist-sized rocky ground because the tyres can't stand sliding off them. Lousy in mud (but semislicks are anyway) or slippery track.

    Inexpensive tyres which are good on road and hard,open fire trails. But the sidewalls give out on anything beyond billiard table roughness. They can be good if used only on the front with something a bit more aggressive and substantial on the back. For the price, they are good if you don't intend getting into the rough stuff.
