Strength:

Ludicrous light and fast, easy to put on.

Weakness:

does seep quite a bit of air vs. time but in fairness I don't use sealant. Not the most "economical" rubber.

Combined with this wheel set up these tires are sickingly light and roll fast. Hard pack - get up and go! Up hill they surprise with how they bite and I kept them at 60 psi! Didn't even need to bleed them off a bit.

In loose gravel you just have to squat a bit more but they never slipped more than a quarter crank turn. Taking 15 psi out made them Spiderman's new rubber. I am 190 lbs so that might help a bit.

Single track the tires never went away - just had to trust the shoulders to bite and they did - any slip was predictable and came back very manageable. Tires did not roll or squirm which is helped by the Easton's wide rim I am sure.

Heavy mud - once they cut through the muck they are thin enough to keep going but with lots of slip. As this is not their design intention it is not surprising. That said they got me home so I owe them that. Just be prepared to pedal like a bad 70's fitness video for every foot you cover.

As for the pressure going down - it is only obvious when the bike sits over 24-48 hours so not really a factor during a "single ride."

For what they are designed for, going fast - they are awesome. No punctures yet but take that with your own grain of salt.

Weakness:

Grip.

Great rear tyre. Haven't had one flat since new.Grip is much better than you would expect when you look at the profile.
Low weight is great, performs great in almost all circumstances as long as you put a nobby tire at the front (like the schwalbe rocket ron). When the rear tyre slips or starts skidding, this front tyre will pull you through and keep everything under control.
Great for cross country racing.
I would recommend this tyre to every rider exept free riders and downhillers.

Strength:

Fast!!! This tyre redused my training loop by 2.5 minutes on a 2 hour ride & I only run it on the back. Grips suprisingly well.

Weakness:

I'm to scared to trust it in a race yet, I'm just worried it will flat on me.

If you are willing to run a tyre that may flat for the extra speed, try it. I will race it at the next dry race.
