Strength:

Have only ridden it for a week. Bought it as a clearance item from an on web bike shop. Good in the dry Ohio dirt and clay with leaves on wooded trails. It held my line on a steep down hill where I found half the trail washed out and I had to hit the berm to one side to make it around a two foot wide foot deep drop to a riverbank. Was likely at about 20 mph and it cornered real well. Running a Kenda BBG Brian Lopes on rear. Both tires are 120tpi dual compound. The Vee weights 550g , Kenda at 570g. An awesome combo on my old rebuilt StumpJumper M2 FS. Both can be inflated 20-65psi and because I ride both paved and woods trails are ran at low 40's on an XC setup with 1.95 tires.

Weakness:

It has a very round profile so I'm wondering how it will be on softer surfaces. Seems noisy compared to the Kenda which has a more knobby pattern. Not sure if my imagination but I could hear it a little more on pavement.
