    Strength:

    Fast, low rolling resistance. Grips well, even on wet surfaces. Relatively puncture proof.

    Weakness:

    None so far.

    Extremely good upgrade for any mtb rider who wants to have some road fun, or efficient commute. Very fast, can be ridden on loose gravel, if the need arises. These tires enabled me to pass roadies few times, which was a good fun, just looking how they react when you put their precious carbon machines to shame...

    These tires turn your extra mountain bike into a road bike
    easy 20 mph average on your training rides. Buy them if you hate road bikes and the trails are to wet from weeks of rain and you have to ride.

    Strength:

    Thin and fast

    Weakness:

    Punctures, wholes and longevity (which sucks). always get flats and slow leaks in the tubes due to easy punctures in the tire. Tons of visible wholes in the tires immediately after short period of use. Even though this product was almost free for me, knowing what the low quality of the product I wouldn't even take it for free if it was offered to me once again. Poor quality and durability.

    Poor quality and not worth pruchasing, getting it for free or even looking at it. Waste of time and tons of problems.

    Strength:

    Super fast.

    Weakness:

    None so far. I am a little worried about rain and punctures, but none so far.

    Like most people that buy mountain bikes in the city, I just wasn't doing any off road riding. A sturdy bike is nice for urban riding, but mountain bike tires are a major drag on paved trails.

    Anybody who rides their mountain bike on pavement should switch to these and experience the difference...it is simply amazing. No, they won't take you off road, but on pavement, there is no comparison. They are inexpensive, too.

    Strength:

    fast fast fast. Rolls smooth and effortlessly. Grips pavement well. Haven't dealt with real rain conditions yet but i've been assured they're as confident as semi'slicks. The rubber is quite sticky...like a basketball shoe.

    Weakness:

    Punture un-proof. Had the bike for a week and got a small piece of glass wedged in. Replaced tube, cheap, still using the tire as it is not totally damaged. But I ride at high pressure so it IS only physics that you cannot fight against when riding over sharp objects.

    FAST TIRE!
    Great for city commuting or courier (maybe keep an extra tube with you) They are fairly cheap so its no big investment worry. But check out Michelin Wildgripper Rock if you want something more loungy and fast, but not AS fast. If you're not racing then its no big deal.
    Just watch for glass with these when riding high pressure!
    I think it should only be standard to find city slicks with built in kevlar or the like for punture proofing!
