Pros: Low rolling resistance. good in dry conditions. climbs well if not turning.

Cons: No cornering in wet conditions, especially if trail is hard with damp leaves or any mud.

Recommendation: I have been riding this tire on mostly dry conditions. Once the trail turns even slightly slick, this tire has no gripping.

Pros: Great all around tire! Light weight XC tire.

Cons: Not the best for loose trail conditions in the front.

Recommendation: Great race tire, but not the first choice for anything more aggresive.

Pros: Lower rolling resistance compared with other knobby tires. Good grip on a straight line.

Cons: No corner grip. Really bad as a front tire since it keeps washing out on corners.

Recommendation: This is a good tire for XC riding. However, if you're doing AM stuff. A more knobbier tire with higher rolling resistance maybe more constructive. I'm currently using this on the rear coupled with the Excavator in the front. Don't recommend putting this tire on the front.
