Strength:

Very fast with their low rolling resistance.

Weakness:

Cornering in loose terrain, and on hard pavement.

I purchased this set of tires after reading the other reviews and thinking I'd take a gamble. I loved the acceleration and the snapiness on the trail. What I didn't love was the feeling that the tires wanted to wash out in loose rocks, sand, hard pavement (ate it in a corner pulling into my driveway). The SuperSonic version is prone to punctures (never had a pinch flat). I would say these may be more ideal for racing. The tread compound wears faster that other tires I've run in the past but I'm just now replacing them after a year and monthly rotation Front to Rear.
