Strength:

Low Cost

Weakness:

Unuseable! Everytime I inflate these they blow off the rims. Luckily the wheels weren't on the bike at the time, or the frame damage may have been significant.

What a disappointment. I figured I may not have seated the tires properly, but repeated attempts and careful checking yielded the same results. They just won't stay on the rims.

Strength:

This is a nice rolling tire with good traction and a nice round casing. Seems to roll quite fast and has a high volume. The compounds seem to enhance the traction as it corners at high lean angles better than it should. The casing is nice and thick, with good compliance to rocks and seemingly good resistance to rocks and debris.

Weakness:

Climbing performance is poor on kitty litter over hardpack when run in the recommended direction. Reverse it to have better climbing performance in a trade off with depreciated braking performance.

For the price currently on closeout these tires are unbeatable for a fast rolling trail/endurance tire. The weight pushes them out of the race category but I used these in a recent 24hr race and loved them. I was scared of the soft compound edge knobs wearing too quickly but so far they look good after 24hrs of racing and some time training on them. Not as grippy as the saguaro but seemingly more stout.
