Strength:

Braking
Cornering (provided you lean in hard, which I do, so positive)
Cheap - (note:£17 (not $17) for a tire this good is quite incredible)

Weakness:

Weight (a little over advertised, heavy for climbing) in either size

Although heavy (read: hard work to heft uphill), I find this to be a very good front tire.

I havent tried it in the rear, so cannot comment on its abilities there - however, I definately recommend the combination of Gazzaloddi dual rear and Gazzaloddi G front

A few things worth pointing out:
1) Cornering - if you like to lean in agressively, then this is a tire for you. The central treads stand up tall, and unless you really lean over, you won't bring the cornering treads into play.
2) Weight - its not light, unless you really need its grip, youre gonna be punishing yourself unneccessarily on the climbs (if youre not a strong and fit climber, you probably won't make it up at all)


So...
Overall, a good front tire for agressive AM riding
