Sticks in corners
High rolling resistance
I bought this tire to help me in the sandy conditions of the Front Range of Colorado, thinking that the larger centre knobs would help me get through the looser patches. It delivered instantly, giving great grip on the flats and in the corners.
I then moved to the UK, and I was a bit nervous about using it in the mud. I thought it might get packed with mud and lose traction, but it performs just as well here as it did in the sand. In fact, in really muddy conditions, it outperforms many of the tires that the native UK riders in my group use.
Update: when it gets REALLY, REALLY muddy, this tire gets packed up and turns into a slick. But by the time it gets that muddy, most tires will be having problems.
