Strength:

very fast rolling on high pressures, duralble, great looking

Weakness:

slippery on wet and muddy conditions if you trust them and going fast

I used those tyres for commuting and urban assaults and they are amazing. Fast rolling and very grippy on asphalt.
I switched them with pure mtb tyres for the woods cause didnt trust them much. BUT when i stopped doing that and lower the pressures on K Rads they let me go flat out!!On dry conditions they grip so well and they are super fast too. Very well for back use and even on the front.Just lower the pressures. Dont use them on wet muddy and rocky trails

Strength:

This is a near perfect street and path tire. It rolls very smoothly on pavement and has just enough tread to not get upset by the occasional patch of sand or taking a short cut through the grass.

Weakness:

Does not make my bike pedal itself.

I've got a pair of these on my fendered, racked, rigid about-town bike. These tires are perfect for the job. They roll very smooth and fast and have great traction on all the surfaces that you'd expect a tire that looks like this to work on: tarmac, gravel, packed dirt and shell and damp sand, downright great on grass. Of course they don't work on wet roots and shale slides. I've been impressed by how well they get through sand patches. I live in Florida, sand is inevitable.

I am amazed at the reviews by guys who describe themselves as downhillers. Whatever were you expecting? these tires are almost slicks

Rolls fast
Looks good
High pressure
I was suprised at how good of traction they had when I tried them off-road. I have been riding purely mountain tires for the last year and After switching to something MUCH more street friendly I was surprised with the change (I used to ride Specialized Resolutions) I run at about 70PSI

Weakness:

I got these for 17 bucks each at price point. that's 17$ for the DTC 2.3 tires. It was a steal, because of price per performance, 5/5

These tires are best thing that happen on my bike. They roll smooth, no vibrations, beautiful sound...

Weakness:

Durability. Last tire rode up quickly. These are not really for offroad.

They are reliable and very good quality. As I said, offroad and durability are problems. Over all, these are the best.

Inexpensive, easy to mount, mounts up true, looks cool, high volume, rolls quick, rounded profile can lean beautifully at higher pressures, yet is stable at lower pressures for stunts.

Review is for 2.3.
This tire suits me perfectly. The balloon like volume is excellent, adds to the suspension, which really helps Ali HT bikes rough rides. With 30psi you can hop really high and track-stand for ages and take heavy hits rolling down stairs and doing urban drops to flat without much risk of pinch flatting, nice and wide for wheelies and manuals also work fine on dry dirt, wouldn't trust them too much in the wet or mud, might make a good summer rear tire if paired up with a Minion DHF. As good as it gets for its use, but I think the DMR Moto Digger 2.3 might have a tad more bite although less volume and slower.

If you commute and want to have fun on the way to work this tire will suit you perfectly, Despite its size it surprisingly hardly slows you down at all yet provides you with so many options, I'll never go near a narrow (1.5-1.75) slick tire for commuting ever again.

You only need three tires: Minion DHFs in the woods, Wet Screams if it snows or rains when you're there, and K-rads for everything else.

Strength:

rolls well, high pressure, very round .

Weakness:

hard to find in the performance version, 2.3

This tire tread design is made many ways and all called K-rad. I ride the 2.3 which is rated at 80 psi and uses a dual compound tread. This is a good street tire, well made, and almost quiet at 80 pounds pressure. No buzzing tire noise. Round, even ,cross section is good for street, tread doesn't washout in a fast lean. Light weight is evident in the sidewalls, mine have some rock damage.

Hard to find a high pressure tire in a wide cross section. One of the best for street with a little tread for insurance if you want to go sightseeing in the country. Holds in the wet.
