Strength:

Gives you the option to mount the tire in two modes : fast if you're the racer type and traction if you're like me and love to shred the trails.

Weakness:

It is a little tight to mount on tubless rims just remember to use some soapy water to make mounting easier.

I purchased this tire along with the Gato in 2.3 fro the front wheel of my Fuel EX 8. This is a really great tire compared to the stock Bontrager tires that came with it . It grips on the climbs and keeps my back end planted on corners. It's been approximately 2+ months of riding 3-4 times a week on the Saguaro TNT and I would purchase this tire again and tell my friends to buy it also. Great value for the money compared to other tubless tires on the market .

Strength:

Very low rolling resistance, predictable, light(ish), bullet-proof

Weakness:

Traction in sand or mud is horrendous

These tires roll extremely fast and allow you to carry speed that much better (especially in addition to them being on a 29'er). The traction is great, but not perfect. While they will occasionally wash out in some corners, it's usually only if I'm really giving em' a tough corner or if there's sand or mud around. However, they're very predictable. They will handle the exact same way every single time, no unexpected traction/slippage whatsoever. Overall I would say these are some great tires, especially for the weight. I've really put them through their paces riding on brutally sharp rocks and have not had any issues with durability.

Strength:

All the riders I ride with in Cape Town have started using these tyres. They offer superb traction and are very durable. For riding our technical singletracks and loose shale they are the best!

Weakness:

Very hard to put onto Stans rims. tight fit.

Buy this tyre, easy rolling - great grip and durable.

Strength:

Man these are the BEST rolling tires I have ever had on my bike! Superb traction at 35psi on our dry sandy gritty SoCal trails. They feel light and have great pick up when you need to hammer.

Weakness:

None so far

Like 'em. Going to ride the San Juan Trail this weekend and expect great things!

Strength:

fast rolling, good grip and good sidewall (TNT), good volume (2.2)

Weakness:

tight fit on the rim (Stant's Flow) but not that difficult; just required more patience. Still didn't have to use a lever

My new favorite tire; used to go back to crossmarks but this tire weights less, rolls faster, has more volume and has plenty of grip!!!
Also, price is decent compared to many other overpriced tires!

Strength:

Will not loose its bead! fast rolling! you can change direction for traction, but it has plenty of traction on fast direction. Best tire I have ever used.

Weakness:

a little hard to get on the rim, and i am told it will not go on every Rim.

I was told the specialized tires that came with my bike were top of the line, and they probably were, but not meant for rocky, sand on hard pack riding that i do. I had them replaced under warranty twice, and then just got fed up with them loosing air off the rim, and having to install a tube. (I am tubeless).
These tires have transformed my riding. I take corners and rocks with confidence! It is a stiff ride, my other tires were kind of sloppy.

Strength:

FAST. Holds air very well. Good traction in dry conditions

Weakness:

Wet conditions. A little hard to get on the rim

I'm using this as a rear tire only. Coming from a Kenda Nevagal, this tire has much less rolling resistance and it feels like you are flying on it. Great traction in dry conditions. However, if you are riding in wet conditions or have technical creek crossings, look for something different. I'm giving it a 3 on value because it's expensive and rarely on sale. I'm giving it a 4 on overall for dry conditions only.....

Strength:

Good tubeless tires.

Weakness:

Not great on the rocks and technical stuff.

Great for cross country, but go with knobbies for the tough stuff (which is what we have in central Maryland). I had Hutchinson Pythons on my Sultan and I switched to Toros, which I thought these would be similar to. I just bought a second pair of Toros for the MCR.

Strength:

( TNT version) Very fast rolling, tremendous on loamy trails where they handle incredibly, good wear, well made.

Weakness:

No fun on wet roots and rocks as they will send you flying without carefull line selection, hard compound that takes some set up with air pressures for the specific terrain. ( Maybe not so much a weakness as a strong trait)

Impressive tire in the right circumstance. For our West Coast weather, I'll be trying the new Gato to see how it fares.
