Pros: Tons of traction on dry, you can really lean it over
Packs up easily in mud
Recommendation: This can be a fun front tire that is predictable for when it loses traction. However, it is fairly heavy and not very supple, which makes it best for an all mountain / downhill situation.
Pros: Good traction and great feel when in a turn. The tire has good stability when pitched in the corner without squirming
Cons: It is a race tire but even so the wear rate is unfortunate
Recommendation: Good tire for racing. Good traction on surfaces that are a bit on the softer things, but not mud. This tire would be great and get 5 stars however they don't last as long as other tires on the market. This is due to the great grip you do get.
