This tire proves to have strategically placed knobs across the unidirectional cross-corrugated casing, providing a stable climbing and descending platform for rigid bikes. Even with the high-profile knobs, there isn’t a tremendous amount of squirm in the lower tire pressure range - which helps with sharp cornering. In loose terrain, the tire was entirely capable of cutting through to shallow hard-pack without sliding. The dual compound manages limited wear despite being ridable in a multitude of conditions, and would be the preferred tire for pine needles and/hard pack sandy conditions with occasional roots or rocks. It’s inspired me to tackle new challenges.

Weakness:

Its a great training tire, but might be a bit heavy for weight-weenie racers. If I had one complaint, it would be the fact that this tire doesn’t make as cool of a “zip” sounds as with the Interwolf.

It's a great kind of all-mountain tire suitable for a fully-rigid or cyclocross bike.

Strength:

grips well, rolls well, wide profile. Really nice too not lose traction in sand. I only ran this on my rear wheel and only in muddy and sandy cross courses when my Specialized Pro's or Tufo's slipped. These tires are a 32 and I run 30's on all other tires. These are notable chunkier. Corner nice on pavment...the side knobs on some of my other tires make for a slip-n-skip effect that stops me from tight turns. Took a beating and ran well at any PSI I tried.

Weakness:

Kinda chunky and lots of grip to slow down roll for dry days/

I like it as my agressive rear tire. I paid too much for it.
