Model/Year: 2015

Pros: Low price, good grip, great durability for price.

Recommendation: Very good tire for price. Does very well for a front tire. It is also incredibly durable. I've been running one as a front tire for two years and it still in good condition.

Pros: $$$

Cons: Heavy

Recommendation: These are one of the best tires I have ran. Very versatile in all conditions. The sport version is a bit heavier than the S works version but for the money they are worth it.

Pros: Durability, size availability price.

Cons: Prone to tearing lugs off after a while, tends to wash out on fast loose terrain.

Recommendation: I ran this tire on my Titus Racer-X. I replaced the one on my rear, a 26x2.2, and i have no complaints, I do have issue with grip on loose track, I never seemed to be able to dial in the right tire pressure, but that is very likely my fault. I replaced it with a Specialized Ground Control. For the money, it's hard tire to beat.
