Strength:

26x2.3 folding bead in front mounted on Sun Ringle Helix TR27 rim, Made in China version. Lighter than Kenda Nevegal, roll fast, inexpensive

Weakness:

Compare with Kenda Nevegal, it grips less than Nevegal. Slippery when wet, narrow tire although it is a 2.3, the knobs wear down faster than Nevegal; i put on the new Toro in March 2020 and now the tread is halfway thru in July so not it wears out fast. I'm a weekend driver, 14km round trip from home to trail.

Strength:

Easy to install, excellent traction, fairly low rolling resistance

Weakness:

Made in China

I have the current Toro Hardskin (doesn't say XC), but it is the same tread as the tire in the photo. The stated width is 2.15" and I am using these as a winter tire. I had the opportunity to test them out the other night when the snow froze up and cars were slipping and sliding. I lived to talk about it, and I attribute this not only to the Toro's ability to shed snow, but the handling characteristics were typical Hutchinson quality. I keep them up at around 55 lbs. Good tire, not too heavy, for the money.
