Strength:

hooks up great in the slop

Weakness:

horrible build quality. the tread is up to 3/8 off center on the carcas. noticable on anything harder than packed dirt.
squirmy on anything hard, unpredictable on roots compard to something softer compound

a good mud spike for the price that i paid($30/pr). could be a little softer which might make em a little less unpredictable on roots and such but hooks up great in anything soft. i dont have peanut butter around here so not too sure if they can truly clean out but i never had them pack up yet. Probably wouldnt buy again due to the build quality and just go wet screams.

Strength:

Amazing Grip!! Never looses traction in nasty conditions. Tough skinned, hard to flat, high volume, low pressure.

Weakness:

Not going to use them for a 24 hour race. Hard to pedal,makes for a good workout.

Not a recreational everyday tire, but an AMAZING winter set. I put these on my bike from December to April and they tear up the slushy, snowy, muddy Northeastern winter trails. I have never lost traction or pinched riding these. They do come in at over 1000 grams, so they are hard to pedal, but will keep you on the trail in the worst conditions. If your not a whiner and wnat to ride the winter look into these!! AMAZING GRIP!!!

Strength:

GREAT HOOKUP IN MUDDY CONDITIONS.SHEDS PRETTY WELL,STRONG SIDEWALL, CAN RUN LOW PRESSURE FOR LARGER FOOTPRINT.

Weakness:

1ST ONE HAD SIDEWALL CRACKS/SEPERATION. WAS REPLACED NO CHARGE. HEAVY. SLOW ROLLER. WILL WEAR FAST IN ANYTHING BUT MUD.

GREAT MUD TIRE, HOOKS UP WELL WITH GOOD SHEADING ABILITY. IN THE PACIFIC N.W. DURING OUR MUDDY SEASON I PREFER THIS TO THE RAPTOR. THE WT. FACTOR IS NOT A REAL PROBLEM IN THESE CONDITIONS. IT ALSO DOES A FAIR JOB OVER ROOTS AND LOGS.THIS WILL BE MY WET WEATHER/MUD TIRE.

Strength:

very long lasting..super grip.

Weakness:

too heavy..sometimes shoot rock up n hit your bike n also the fock ..

is a good tire..long lasting n very very grip..
but if u r using XC bike ,dont use it as a rear tire ..
cause some the tire will bring sand into the drivetrain n give some problem to shift gear
