    Strength:

    -cornering on DRY conditions is super!!!!
    -unstopable for XC and more

    Weakness:

    -all weaknesses of any slick/competition tires
    -it's a compleat different experience from blue boazo. R
    -nokian stop producing the blue one

    I needed something different for my REAR tire, some new experiences.
    The X one never stops on sunny days. Always full speed ahead on dry/compact trials and single tracks.
    This tire has the same corner abilities as boazo. R which is amazing.
    The center knobs it's not the same story, there's something that gives a good traction and not good as a roller. Odd!
    The X is very confortable for a non tubeless and the rubber wears off fast, like 300km fast but always quality soft rubber and compleat sideknobs.
    My weight is over 100Kg and i use nokian or maxxis fr/dh tubes. It never pinched!!
    Until the sunny day it blast(something around 1000Km). That was a ride to remember, old people screaming on the bus stop, fortunately i was half km away from home.

    Strength:

    fast rolling, good racer tire. cool blue color.
    turns heads, doesnt wear fast

    Weakness:

    slippery when wet. sucks in sticky wet mud and rooty sections. made me a little scared in hard turns.

    These tires are definitely not worth the $80 I paid for them
    the much cheaper panaracers worked far better. Im going
    back to panaracer.

    the only reason to buy these tires would be (a) you live in a dry area or , (b) youre an xc racer.
    thats what those tires are good at, quite good.
    but they are bad in mud.

    Strength:

    big float

    Weakness:

    If you have tight stays the 2.3 may be too much tire for you.

    The 2.3 kicks in wet loose mud or snow...anywere you need float.
    Sheds like a shaggy.

    Strength:

    Excellent in wet conditions

    Weakness:

    Not too good on hardpack
    They wear quickly

    This is a wet weather tire . They work really well in mud . They do not pack up too much , and they maintain good grip on wet rocks and roots .

    They actually work well amongst loose rocks and sand as well .

    Unfortunately their hardpack performance is not too good , but they were not made for that . As long as you are careful when you corner , they get the job done .

    Rolling resistance is good as far as wet weather tires are concerned .

    Overall , this is the best wet weather tire I have tried

    Strength:

    Mud grip, Mud rinse, Funky color, Low rolling-resistance

    Weakness:

    Poor cornering, Slides out on roots, Wears fast

    Reviewing Boazobeana R 2.1 ice-blue.

    Low rolling resistance, going straight, come to a corner and experience an unpredictable wobbly feel on hard surfaces.

    Excellent traction and rinse in mud, for such a light and fast tire.

    Excellent sideways slip on wet roots, them wide channels just suck in roots and sends the rear flinging sideways.
    Should you somehow manage to stay straight on a root you'll notice that the flimsy little 'knobs' in the middle of the tire manage to give almost no traction at all, should you have any left, since they instantly vaporize if you ever happen to skid-brake on tarmac.

    Buy this tire if you ride straight on hardpack between great big pools of mud.

    Dont buy it if you like wet, rooty singletrack riding.

    The blue compound looks great, but performance is not up to par with the looks.

    C'est comme si on était sur une "track"... Excellente traction et direction. On ne peut demander mieux... dans toutes les conditions.

    Weakness:

    Ne pardonne pas les écarts de direction... un simple changement de poids sur les gidons... et oup... on change de lignes.

    The best... Nice color... Very spécial tire...
    Different tred in front and rear.
