Pros: Cool looking tyre rides nice on the road to the trail grips really well in wet, dry, rocky, hard pack. Solid casing have had no punctures in a year of riding on rocks and rocks and some rocks. Really good on hard pack snow surfaces.

Cons: A little heavy though it is a 27.5 x 3.0 tyre. Not great in soft snow and totally horrible in more than 3 inches of powder it just slides sideways if you try to turn even on a smooth snow covered road.

Recommendation: Highly recommend this tyre for 3 season riding especially on hard rocky surfaces.

Pros: Don't have any pros really. Maybe it is pretty durable with the grid structure. I do like Specialized's grid carcass. It seems to hold up MUCH better the controls.

Cons: a little slow rolling for the rear; didn't seem to follow/track well; not stable enough for the front for me and my conditions

Recommendation: Didn't like on front or the rear
