Strength:

Rigid sidewalls on the roll-x 2bliss make it quite durable and coupled with the high air volume this tire hooks up well and runs a lower risk of tire failure due to air volume. Good rolling resistance and a meaty tred design gives this tire superb handling and acceleration, it has quite a efficient design.

Weakness:

It's perfect for it's intended use, but for exteme rock gardens, and loose conditions on fast descents the tire is acceptable but to skinny for this for obvious reasons. Probably not your extreme moab tire.

This tire, though I was nervous and skeptical at first, is definetly one that needs to be in your arsenal of basic moutain bike components. It's fast with low rolling resistance and great traction due to the high volume 2bliss design allowing you to run lower air for better tread with no detriment to tire failure. The 2.0 width allows for a digging in tread designed to keep you fast and in control whether it be climbing or descending. This is your all around fast and aggressive race tire that allows you to push it hard and feel minimal at best drag. Skinnier, less aggressive tread, is not always best when racing. I'd rather hook up well and be free to push it and not have my tires dictate my riding style. On these puppies, your free to run your own course!

Strength:

Wide, lowpressure, fast and easy to mount

Weakness:

None.

I love the Crossmarks but the Roll X 2.2 tubeless is very similar but on steroids. I am 210 lbs and these tires feel very secures on turns and decents and are very fast rollong to boot. But it, ride it and enjoy it!

Strength:

super fast rollling for a full knobby

Weakness:

definitly not a mud tire

Ive riddin all sorts of ust tires for the past 7 years(2 years of tubes before that) and these are hands down the best ive ever ridden.many people like the roll-x tube version but the tubeless version will make you feel like superman.rolls super fast,has awesome traction,especially in corners because of the duel compound.its only weakness is they do not due to well in the mud.otherwise the best ust tire sold in my opinion.

Strength:

Grips well, large air volume, durable sidewalls

Weakness:

Wears quickly, especially the side knobs; not the easiest to mount, especially as the beads stretch with age.

If you want a full knobby, this is a great tire. They grip well, corner well, and the sidewalls don't get cut up in rocky terrain. The grip in loose/soft wet corners is pretty amazing. I race on these if it is muddy or really loose, often running one of these on the front with a Rockster on the back. It rolls pretty well for a full knobby, although obviously there are faster tires out there for hard, dry conditions. It is a wide 2.0; it holds a lot of air, so you can run it pretty soft on rocky terrain without killing your rim or pinching.

The soft rubber wears quickly, but that is why this tire grips, especially in damp/wet conditions. As the tires age, the beads get kind of stretched a bit, making them difficult to mount. At least the treads wear before the sidewalls blow. These wear a little better than the Rocksters, maybe it is because the knobs are bigger so more rubber can wear off before the knobs get ripped off.

I really like this tire, I give it straight 4's, because no tire is perfect. This one is hard to beat for terrain that requires a full knobby.
