Strength:

Durable; amazing corning abilities, price

Weakness:

Hard to find in shops. Buy online.

I rarely write reviews. I've used this as a front tire on several different bikes. So this review is limited to front use. While I've tried a number of different tires over the years, I always come back to this one for a front tire. The cornering is amazing, especially on loose rocky decents. Something about the profile of the tire just makes it hook up and remain highly predictable at the limit. The compound is on the firm side making it very durable. Lack of sipes might hold it back some on hard polished "greasy" mud or ice, but works great in deep mud or snow. Truly an under-rated tire. Wish it came in a tubeless version.

Strength:

Big knobbies! Cornering

Weakness:

Heavy

Best dang set of tires I have ever bought. Corner with confidence. Awesome braking traction. I have had no pinch flats. Long even wear pattern. Look bad-*ss. You feel like a BAMF when using them. Get a set and try
them out.

Strength:

Really big, high volume tire, incredible traction, lean well, handle lots of abuse

Weakness:

God these are heavy tires

I replaced the stock tires on my Trek Fuel EX7 with these bad boys. I can say I'm really happy with these tires - the traction is just incredible - climbing, braking, or leaning them over in the turns. The air volume on these things is HUGE, they kind of wrap around whatever you're pedaling over. I can't brake traction climbing. Only one pinch flat since I got them, and that was just because I wanted to see how low pressure I could get away with. They're really heavy though, don't roll smoothly (you feel the lugs hitting the ground at low speeds), so if that's what you want go elsewhere. But if you're willing to sacrifice that for crazy control going down then get 'em.

Strength:

Grabby, great direction (as a front tire), great flotation over rocks, pretty gnarly looks

Weakness:

I would have rather had it colorless, all black sidewall (I have the red one)

I have gained alot of confidence after riding with this tire. Super grabby in turns, very good direction and looks sweet to boot
