Pros: These tires grip real nice on berms and climbs. Real fast rolling. They are pretty strapping, and I run em hard. They do great in Both XC and AM But a thinner size would be better for XC. The price is right also

Cons: Not the best at mud shedding but not the worst, doesn't stop me ;)

Recommendation: If you want a hardy, gripy, fast rolling all condition tire that will last quite awhile then give these a try

Pros: Extremely fast rolling tires; Exceptional grip on loamy, damp trails; Claw-like traction over roots & rocks, especially slickrock (Moab); Massively durable and very long tread life, even without the ProTection option; Round tread profile, will not slide out without warning unlike square-tread tires.

Cons: These tires do not like mud, and pack up very easily. They are also not recommended for dry sandy/gravel trails common to the midwest. High-speed cornering grip isn't the best, but once a rider is used to them, they will drift very nicely.

Recommendation: I highly recommend these tires for riders who commonly ride trails that aren't often turned into bogs by frequent rains. Sharp rocks & abundant roots will not faze these tires, and I run them at lower pressures than I would normally for other tires. Railing berms at high speeds are a blast with these tires, but high-speed off-camber corners can be a little scary unless the rider is experienced with these tires.
