Strength:

Haven't found any so far.

Weakness:

Very small, widely spaced knobs that wore out after about 30-40 miles, punctures easily, thorns go through like made of Saran wrap.

Never trust the French. I assume in France there are no rocks, roots or thorns or they would have known these #@*&ing tires wear out after about 4-5 rides. Maybe they just never really rode them on any trails. I bought them on the Internet, and when I got them, I could see the tiny, hollowed out blocks were spaced literally ABOUT 2 INCHES APART! Not only is there no grip when the blocks start to wear (very quickly), there is so much exposed casing that any thorns you ride over end up in your tubes. These tires are advertised "for wet conditions," so I rode them in the rain and slid off everything I should have stuck to (rocks, roots, etc.). I would like to personally place them in the French genius' body cavity who designed them. I had a pair of Python Elites (the old style) that were great tires, but the question is not whether these suck, but rather what do they suck. To say they suck is to insult things that suck everywhere.

I've written at least 50 words, but I could go on all day.
Who should buy them? Sell them to the French, they deserve them.
Yes, I actually own them or at least until the trash man comes.
Yup, just one review on these wonderous tires.
I won't attack the guy who liked 'em.
My spelling is perfect, I think.

Strength:

Lightweight, large volume, float, fast for its size (2.3). Rails corners very well. Very low roll resistance! I like it!

Weakness:

Not GREAT BITE Traction - Good but not great. There is certainly a trade off, when desiring lightweight but large volume and low rolling resistance.

Good product if you want low roll resistance in a light weight package. I ride mostly aggressive xc taking any and all drops along the way. But for serious freeriding, I would use one of my other many brands in the garage. Ride and live hard!
