Strength:

Good traction, thick casing.

Weakness:

None

One year, no flats. If that doesn't say something then what does? Match these tires with Sun-Ringle Doublewides and Nokian DH tubes and watch all your friends change flats. Maybe they will get the hint after a while. PS I ride as hard as the next downhiller, so the 909's have been put to the test.

Strength:

Great traction on loose and hard dirt. It hasn't rained enough to test them in the mud. SUPER SIDEWALLS. 4-PLY SIDEWALL = 10PSI and no pinch flats!

Weakness:

None that I have found yet except maybe that they are very heavy but 4-ply sidewalls are going to be. You have to expect that.

If you want the most indestructible tire I am yet to find buy these. Yes they are heavy but super thick sidewalls never get pinch flats. Good Rolling tire and performs terrific in a myriad of conditions.

Strength:

Indestructable casing, excellent dry traction.

Weakness:

They wear out really fast, and the side lugs liketo rip off.

These tires were okay for going down really steep rocky terrain, other than that they suck your pedal power even when you ar going downhill. The thing that I disliked the most was that the lugs tear off the sidewall too easily.

Strength:

Aggressive knobs, stiff side walls, comes in 24", incredibly smooth ride

Weakness:

Less than 1 month of riding and it's already worn out. When they say soft compound, they mean it.

Best tires i'ved ever used but way to soft for normal person use. Great for racing though. Im already looking for new tires after 1 month of use.
