Strength:

fast rolling, good grip on soft surface and snow, light

Weakness:

could be better on wet tarmac

Thread pattern cleans off mud and snow, rare knobs bites good into softer surfaces. Grip on tarmac is poor, especially when it is smooth or wet, so you must be carefull in city. I buy them for 15$ each, i think that for this price they are very good.They are good all season xc tyres, no matter where you live.I recommend theese tyres for all cross country riders. Dont recommend if you like to ride aggressive or you spend many time on tarmac. I was surprised how good they roll at middle or higher pressure, rolling resistance feels like on my old all terrain semi-slick tyres. ir you got puncture you can unmount ant mount them with fingers without any tools.

Strength:

Corners very well, excellent climbing tire, sheds mud instantly: works well in mud and sand, traction is awesome in all conditions... Very good in wet conditions... rolling resistance is low, doesn't slow you down too much.

Weakness:

thin side walls, can fold over if bad landing... wears fast... thin side walls make tire unstable on wheel, there's lateral play (makes steering kind of wonky)

this is a nice starting tire... its lightish, it handles corners very well... Keep it inflated higher than you'd usually put your tires, Maybe an extra 10 PSI. eventually it will wear out and you will need new tires - get other ones, the sidewalls are thin and flimsy... traction seems soft and mushy... get something with stronger sidewalls, it'll make the tires more laterally rigid and provide better traction in highspeed/downhill situations.

Rear is exellent climber on not too loose stuff, wears fast, gets flats on every surface you can imagin :(

Front, not good on loose stuff but average roller, traction is limited and doesnt warn you before it slips

Strength:

i didn't know there were any...

Weakness:

there isnt enough space here...

dont buy these. you might as well put slicks on and go for a ride in the mud. no traction, developed this huge bulge in the sidewall, no traction. i guess if you enjoy slipping and spinning if there is any moisture on the trail, you should buy these. otherwise, buy kenda klaws, cheap as dirt, and have never given me any trouble.

Strength:

Lightweight, easy to change tubes when you get a flat.

Weakness:

Lightweight, easy to change tubes when you get a flat, which has been twice in one week. The thin sidewall has been the problem. Both flats were due to something going through the sidewall.

OK tire, but just seems to easy to get flats on. I've been on the same trails with other tires and never had a flat, but 2 times in one week with these tires. They look cool with the green lettering, but just don't hold up as well as others. Think it's time to upgrade to a better, wider tire.

Strength:

Have lasted a very long time thru a lot of rough riding, have only had 1 flat and that was my fault for not dodging the cactus. Fairly good hold on rocky and hardpack.

Weakness:

Doesn't hold track worth diddly squat in loose conditions. Cornering is scary at speed on these tires. Get really slick in the mud, but they do shed it fairly well.

Good tire if you live in the desert and don't ride on anything but hardpack or rock, can climb fairly well. Absolutely NOT the tire for tight twisty trails, do NOT inspire a great deal of confidence when cornering. Actually writing this review as I'm reading other reviews for a good XC Tire. Giving 5 Chili's since they've lasted so long and were OEM on my bick, but overall only a 3 since they loose traction so often
