Strength:

Easy to mount, corners awesome, grips well in ALL conditions, durable yet wears long, looks good, improves your riding skills because your confidence goes waaay up

Weakness:

expensive (initially but don't need as much replacing), heavy, and the name sounds tacky (like a counting crows song)

I rode thess for 3 weeks in Whistler expecting wet and nasty conditions, but ended up riding mostly dry and dusty tracks. However, the tires still hooked up great and improved my skills. Also, the lived up to their name when the trails got nasty aftet a light rain turned the dust-covered rocks and roots into greasy slime...I stayed on the bike on Canadian Open track and lower joyride while wet...obviously had to adjust my lines. a bonus is that there's obviously wear, but putting my rear tire on the front, and vice versa, the tires should hold up for the rest of the season!

Strength:

grip, strength, puncture proof

Weakness:

none, only washed out once in torential rain on an of camber rooty corner, and i was going waaaaaaaay to fast

this tyre is honestly insane, somehow i manged to win it which is even better but they are very expensive. i can only use the front because my frame does not have enogh clearence. but it is soooo grippy. its so tacky, like blue tack, but it never breaks any knobs, they just hold to evrything and gove me so much confidence. even in the dry they are better than all tyres i have used before, and they even roll quite well. buy them if you have enough money, if not... SAVE UP!
