Strength:

Big - fat -and really big and fat

Weakness:

Have not been able to set up tubeless ---- yet!

I have the thing on a GFS rim (no holes yet) and it is great! I love the monster truck feeling on my bike!!

Light than a suspension fork, and no maintenance. We will see how long it lasts.

Strength:

Good grippy tire. Cushy, low pressure lets the tire absorb impacts instead of compression. Works well in low to medium speed technical situations. Confident feeling.

Weakness:

Heavy, but all things fat are! Though the tire works great at low speeds, the rebound you can get from ruts and big rocks at speeds over 15 mph can be a handful if you aren't paying attention. If you can manual a fat front bike then you won't have too many issues with rebound

Riding a fat front bike is quite different from riding a narrow tire bike. This 3.8" tire has a nice tread pattern that combined with a low tire pressure (9psi) will let you grip and lean over stuff you would think twice about with a 2.5. I built my fat front bike to take on a wet and muddy winter, which hasn't happened but this tire still shines and plays nice on dry, loose, loamy singletrack. Cushy ride, motorcycle tire looks.
