Strength:

Grip, weight, dual compound, predictability.

Weakness:

Ermm...

These tyres are fantastic on so many surfaces. If you like High Rollers and their predictable handling, esp. cornering, then these puppies are for you.

The dual compound gives up softer, sweet cornerign edge nobbles, but a hard centre tread that means they outlast Supertackys, roll reasonably well and weigh less than a "proper" DH tyre but still have reasonably tough sidewalls.

They hook up in so many conditions - only failing on tarmac and serious mud in my experience.

The 2.4 size is perfect for all-day all-rounder duties, but may not be fat enough for DH mayhem, but then weight is less of an issue for DH so you might as well stick with your Minions or High Roller Reezays.

Strength:

This tire is very sticky and your able to ride just about any shore without slippen and one time I took it on ice and it didn't slip around too much.

Weakness:

The roller is meant only for downhill and trails and stuff like that because if you take it on the street it'll wear down extremly quickly.

This tire is swell for downhill, freriding and stuff like that. It's able to get you up everything and it is great for downhill because when your about to crash it stops you pretty quickly. The only thing bad about the tire is if you ride street it would probally last a week or two but other then that the Specialized roller is just Ace.

Incredible Grip! Wide profile

Weakness:

The guys at the LBS kept raving about these tires, so I finally tried a pair out. I run them tubeless on Deemax's and I cannot believe how well these tires hook up!
I was a big fan of my Gazzaloddi's prior to running these Rollers. Now I can take turns at speeds my Nokians would always break traction at! These tires dig in on the climbs and brake well also.
I highly recommend giving these tires a try...you won't regret it!
