Strength:

Fastest rolling tire I've ever tried, very light and seems good quality considering how light it is. 170 TPI & very light

Weakness:

Poor traction when cornering hard, needs a lot of getting use to although predictable and somewhat controlable skidding, noisy on pavement, very slippery on wet, durability still remains a question ? very pricy

I waited 500 miles before posting a comment, after reading a lot of negative on these I decided to risk it and I'm happy with the tire, rear has about 3/8 of it gone through wear, a few scratches on the sidewalls but no issues yet and best of all no punctures, I'm using it with Specialized superlite tubes bringing the total weight at 385 grams and riding at 45 psi, I've got about 400 miles of hard packed and of that about 100 loose over hard little mud and may be 100 of pavement for a total of 500 miles, I think if everything goes well I should get between 1,500 to 2,000 miles from the rear and if so I would be satisfied. I think they are better for XC and not much more, did a bit of DH and don't trust them for that purpose, so not for a lot of riders, but if you ride XC in mostly dry conditions it's an excellent tire.
