Strength:

Fast Rolling, Great Rear Tire, Lightweight

Weakness:

Only Available in 2.0in, Not Good in the Mud, Pressure Sensitive

I like this tire for smooth xc riding, it grips wonderfully when the trails are dry, and rolls super fast (cross tire fast). I usually run them around 20-25psi (at 160lbs) and find that even at those low pressures, they roll really fast, breaking traction is not quite at Slant Six level, but I never really had a problem, even on steep, loose downhills.

The problems start when the terrain gets wet, or super rocky. In the mud, this tire works decently if you run it at a somewhat high pressure ~32psi, but because of it's low volume it begins to suffer on rocky terrain at this pressure. On smooth, dry trails, this tire is really hard to beat, and though I really like this tire, I don't think it's the best for all around riding. If Kenda made it in a 2.2, I think it would be a good deal more versatile.
