Strength:

big knobs, no flats.
It's OK in soft stuff.

Weakness:

Side knobs tear and fold over, causing you to eat it. This happens any time you pull hard lateral Gs on hardpack or slickrock.
The worst thing about it is that you can't tell when it's going to let go. It just happens without warning.

The look better than they work. Admittedly, I was only using it in front, but I can't see how having one in the back would have helped.
3 value chilis because they were dirt cheap.

Nothing as unpredictable as this tire, ever.

This review is for the rear tire only. Great tire for the price. It climbs well, thick side, and excellent traction.

Strength:

Rear has good traction

Weakness:

seriously lacks in pinch flat resistance. I flatened two nokian dh tubes in two days. I was not happy but riding down stairs does that i geuss. Front sucks.

If they come stock on your bike dont worry about it... there not that bad. But never buy them.

Strength:

Outstanding traction, tough tires good looks, aggressive tread.

Weakness:

None

Out standing tire, anything I throw at them they will take, I would highly recommend this tire to another person. It goes through sand without a problem, the feel when running on the road is outstanding, and you got to love the orange stripe.

Strength:

Price, traction. Can run lower pressures without fear of pinch flats. Relatively light for size of tire

Weakness:

None found yet

I've been climbing and bombing back down Mormon/National trail for > 1year with no problems. Tread gettting low now. Probably due for a replacement in the next couple of months. Good thing I bought spares

Strength:

the back tire has good traction

Weakness:

the front tire loves to slide out in corners- I have no idea why but suspect is has something to do with the way maxxis curved it. THESE TIRES ARE THIN AND WEAK! I GOT A PUNCTURE THROUGH THE TOP OF MY BACK TIRE JUST RIDING ON THE ROAD THROUGH SOME THORNS. IT PUT A HUGE RIP IN THE TIRE AND I FLATTED DUE TO THIS AND NOW HAVE TO THROW A PRETTY NEW TIRE OUT. Even though they say DH on them they are weak and could never be used for DH. Alternatively they are heavy and aren't ideal for xc for this reason....

I wouldn't buy them. Too heavy for xc and too thin and weak for DH/Freeride, also the grip on the front is TERRIBLE. It looks good but it sucks. Don't buy them. Recommend panaracer fire xc's as you can get them cheaper (the wire version) and they grab alot better (even though they are 2.1 and the maxxis are 2.35).

Strength:

Width(not to bulky). Wears great. Pince resistance. Great traction.

Weakness:

May not be best in gravel or loose hardpack.

I am an avid riderfree rider and have thrown everything at these tires for the last 2 years. Rocky climbs, fast downhillls,dirtjumps,pavement,rocky branch sections, anything you can think of, these tires have seen it. And the back tire now has noticable wear but is still dishing out the traction. I may ride them for 1 more season unless traction is drastictly lost(need snow tires). In the mud yesterday they still held their ground.

For 2 years I have never had a flat with even doing drops and stairs. They are tough.

When I first got the bike and tires, they did seem to slide out on loose hardpack and gravel. It scared me. But now being comfortable with both, they are perdictable and I can fly down trails at top speed with full confidence in them. Going from a 2.1 to a wider tire, the extra width handles great but you don't get the excess bulkage of the wider tires.

These are great allround tires, just be carefull in the loose sections.

Strength:

Suckers rule in climbing/descending in the fall mud. Got'em as a seasonal tire for that hard to rage in generally wet fal/spring stuff. 1st rainy day out had to do the muddiest climb just to see; yep they made it like a champ.

Weakness:

Could inspire reckless abandon on downhills, I'm doing s##t faster now in the mud than I was doing in summer, going with the force kinda stuff.

SO they're not as lite but YOU WILL climb better, and LAUGH on the Descents like never before. HIghly Recommend for spring/fall riding, They're wide tires so you may want to re-route your derailler cables if your Cannondale has the old parrellel route to the newer style cross over route.

Similar Products Used:

Never used anything this gnarly before just your x-c stuff; darts, mythos, wildgripper,they're not bad but these rule.
