Strength:

Corners pretty well in loose conditions and they last longer than my Kenda Nevegals.

Weakness:

Nearly impossible to get on without levers. Also, it doesn't seat properly once on causing it to wobble from side to side, no matter how many times I tried deflating and realigning. These problems are the reason I will never buy this tire again. Too bad because the traction was nice.

Too many problems to recommend or buy again.

Strength:

On the front, sticks into turns with confidence as long as you attack. Lasts fairly long (hey, hard condition), and still functions well when gets worn down.

Weakness:

Not a tire for finessing over obstacles. It can slip and slide a little when not attacking.

I use it on the front. I tend to attack rocks and gravel, so it does very well there. And does well puttering along along on the easy sections (so I can catch my breath). But it does not like to take it easy on the rough, which suits me fine. I have another one in medium compound, and I can "finesse" a little better on it.

Similar Products Used:

Way too many. Panaracer, Kendas, Geaxs.
