    I run it on the rear of my SS in the summer months. Grips well on dry hard pack. Rolls nicely

    Pros
    Fast rolling
    Tacky

    Cons
    Not an all around tire choice

    These came on a demo bike and from looking at them I didn't expect much. They were pleasantly surprising. As expected, they roll fast, but on Colorado loose over hardpack they also hook up really well for acceleration and corners.

    Pros
    Light
    Low rolling resistance
    Tread hooks up better then expected

    Cons
    Too many compounds and options to choose from

    This is an XC race tire. I have 1300 miles on a front/rear set on my 29er so far this year. I've been pretty happy with them.

    Make sure to get the Black Chili version (Supersonic, Raceport, or Protection) which is only made in Germany.

    If u r having problems with flats, u should be running tubeless.

    Pros
    Fast, great for hardpack and slight loose over hard, wears well.

    Cons
    Not good for grease or mud.

    Buy it if you want a light and fast rolling tire for hard packed trails. Don't get it if you roll through thorny $* # all the time. You'll get pissed at how often you have to fix a flat with these tires.

    Pros
    Fast rolling, wide but light tires, grips well and corners efficiently on packed trails. Performs even better when ran tubeless.

    Cons
    Prone to flats! Gets flats easily and can loose air at the rate of 5psi a day from the smallest thorn. Seems to wear out quickly. Can be pricey.

    I run at 50 psi, and not at the max of 65, which makes it root and rock friendly with a little give. Awesome feel and free rolling.

    Pros
    fast rolling, lightweight

    Cons
    a little slick

    Fast tire, makes for good mo on smoothe singletrack. Tends to get slippy on sharp turns and roots, but good on straight climbs.

    Pros
    Fast Rolling

    Cons
    Grip's OK
