Strength:

It does what it is suppose to, It grips, It even grips when being run on the edge of the tire.

Weakness:

Compound is a little soft and time will tell as to its durability, UST tires are tough to get on at the best of times, but this tire was simply a nightmare to get on.

It is a good tire, if just a little heavy.

Strength:

Grip, traction, turning ability, rolling resistance, ability to hold air.

Weakness:

A little on the heavy side. 2.25" is really a 2.1". High price. A little difficult to put on.

Great tire. Measurably better than Conti Vertical Pro UST 2.3" that I have been running. So far the best UST tire I have found. You will need to spend US$50 per each tire. For aggressive riders, you might want to get the Fat Albert which is 2.35".

Strength:

Fast, light weight for snakeskin sidewall durability, handle compact stuff very well... Best overall tubeless tire for REAR ONLY since it's 2.1" & sometimes the Albert 2.25 depending on how aggressive you're riding! Up front I run the Albert 2.25" or the Fat Albert 2.35".

Weakness:

None!

These are a great all around tire. Not too many have heard of them. I've used them for the past 2-years and keep going back to them after trying others... German made so quality is great... low resistance, great cornering & great grip!
