Pros: Great all-around tire.
Pretty light for the volume.

Cons: Not as good in the deep gravel as my Maxxis Advantage 2.4. Pricey!

Recommendation: This may be the best all-around all mountain tire I've had. Many of my local trails have lots of loose gravel, so my old Maxxis rides better there, but anywhere else, the Fat Albert is the ticket.

Pros: Good traction on the dryer - medium stuff. Holds well in corners and has sufficient volume to not pinch a tire on a rock garden

Cons: none

Recommendation: Great tire for a AM - FR rider. I love the cornering force you can get out of this tire in most conditions that are around my place. (loom to hardpack, rockgardens, logs).
