Strength:

this tire is tough the side wall is uber thick and i can ride with about 7 psi in the tires. great for the snow, and hard pack trails also has very little Rolling resistence.

Weakness:

compared to other tires, they feel very heavy and sometimes have a hard time hooking up in softer sandier areas.

great tire for riding the more rocky trails because these things never pinch, perfect for getting to campus in the snow, and not the best for softer situations or a weight saver setup.

Strength:

agressive tread, tough casing, large air volume, stay on rim at low pressure

Weakness:

a little heavy compared to a maxxis or kenda

I am running a savage tire up front with a bite tire in the rear and it is a really good all conditions set-up. The tires seems to hold their own in everything from dry and rocky to wet and rooty and even in snow. If you are one who hates changing tires to suit different course conditions I would highly recomend you give this set-up a try.

I use this tire extensively when conditions get sloppy but not enough to warrant a full on mud tire. Most of the time when riding in mud, there are also rocks and roots. Mud tires don't really like to play with rocks and roots but this tire has enough of a rounded profile to still roll over rocks and roots. I used these tires front and rear at the 2007 Crankworx Garbonzo DH. They helped me earn a 6th place finish. Sam Hill won on mud tires, but he probably would have won on a tricycle. There aren't many tires that fill the gap between dry condition tires and mud tires. This one fits the bill.
