Strength:

Makes an excellent training tire. Rolls fast and smooth on gravel roads but still is grippy and predictable on most single track trails. Wears slowly. The price is great.

Weakness:

This tire is to heavy for x-country racing but thats not its intended use

Buy this tire as an all around training tire for xc. It wears well and is capable in most situations with-out being super heavy and expensive.

Strength:

rolls good, grip is very good (for a CC tire), fits the rim ;.)

Weakness:

a bit to sleek for a 2.0, looks retro...

for the litte money i paid (18 Euros the pair!)i got a tire, that has a very low rolling resistance and really good grip.

I have the LRC folding bed version.

Because there is so much rubber on the tread, it weighs a tad too much. So I cut a little bit off the tread on front, which also gives a profile that is more like the old IRC Mythos front.

Strength:

This tire is pretty much a similar tread pattern to WTB's Velociraptor front. I first started using this with my Velociraptor rear, but found myself keeping it on no matter what was on the rear. It is very predictable and provides adequate traction in most conditions.

Weakness:

For an all-conditions tire like it is, it works well in many situations, but doesn't quite master them all. A bit sketchy in sand, but what tire isn't?

For a tire I got for free, I can't say anything bad about it. It has been on my bike since the day I got it no matter what the trails looked like. Mud, sand, hardpack; it handles it all in a pretty light package.
