Lower rolling resistance compared with other knobby tires. Good grip on a straight line.
No corner grip. Really bad as a front tire since it keeps washing out on corners.
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.
