    Strength:

    Huge tire footprint, good flat protection, very tough, looks cool

    Weakness:

    A bit heavy, but it is worth the extra grams to lug around

    Good tire, killer at Plattekille with 22 psi in FRO casing. never flats with Intense 2.7 tubes. Great big tire traction, not to bad on the snow course either

    Strength:

    Good grip on wet stuff. Smashes over anything. Nice thick side walls.

    Weakness:

    Doesn't run too well in really dry conditions. Is a bit#h to put on the rim. Teard wears a little too fast.

    Good tire, but not the best. If you only ride in the mud this tire is great. My Nokains are way better, can preform in all situtations.

    BUZZ   Downhiller [Jan 11, 2002]
    Strength:

    Very strong sidewalls, good traction on wet downhill, and rolls over everything with good speed.

    Weakness:

    get dh tubes....you don't want to change them often.

    I really like these tires. I feel the tires can help anyone DH better. Run them low 15-30psi. Handle super on roots and rocks...east coast....Also grab on turns very well.

    Strength:

    Durability in extreme conditions, traction in the duff.

    Weakness:

    really friggin heavy.

    this is the tire you need for the world cup courses and other very harsh dh conditions where there is big rocks, and thick duff. If the course has any peddling at all, leave this tire at home. You'll need a set of metal tire irons to get these guys on and off.

    Strength:

    tons of traction, sticky rubber works great, look like a mx tire, have used as little a 21 psi in them with no flats ever

    Weakness:

    none, well a little heavy for free riding, but no flats!

    this is the best big tire I have ever used out of the 6 years I have been riding. the tiogas gave me nothing but troubles and forget about trying to get them warrantied. the maxxis is oh but cornering traction was not as good at the 2.7 DH

    Bruce   Downhiller [Dec 11, 2004]
    Strength:

    Grip well
    Very stiff sidewalls, nearly impossible to pinch flat

    Weakness:

    Side knobs fell off over time
    Tires wear way too fast
    There is no way I would pay MSRP for these tires, simply not worth it

    When these tires were new, they gripped very well, but after only one race, the sideknobs began falling off, and during one run, I lost probably half of the knobs on one side, making it extremely difficult to finish the run. I sent the tires back to Intense (as they claimed it was a defect) and they promised to send me some new ones, but 6 months later, my tires still havent arrived.

    Pete   [Jul 22, 2002]
    Strength:

    Big,stiff, can run stupid low psi.

    Weakness:

    Heavy, a real biotch to mount/ unmount

    Big a$$ tire that will smash over anything or anybody. Grips surprisingly well in the mud and wet rocks. I run 11 psi without any pinchflats. Weight will build up your arm strength but isn't so bad when you're going fast. Works good jumping stairs,too.

    Sean Atkinson   Weekend Warrior [May 02, 2002]
    Strength:

    4-ply sidewalls
    2.70 inch width
    Grip in all conditions
    Rolling Diameter

    Weakness:

    Wieght (1560 grams!)

    If you want a tire that grips and looks good and your not worried about the wieght this is it! I've only had it for about 2 weeks but it's been used in most conditions during that time. Mud pans, Downhill, Street racing etc. and it hasn't let me down yet. A bloody good tire (if it fits your bike!)

    Similar Products Used: Nothing! It's an upgrade from the original tires that where on the bike when I bought it. Duro 2.125 MotoX tread.
