The Good: rolls fast, light weight
The Bad: gets a bit overwhelmed on big features (2.25 size)Overall Review: The spacing between the tread knobs helps this tire hook up well in loose conditions, yet it seems to roll quite well on hardpack too. The rubber compound on this tire helps give you good grip but I did find the rear tire knobs were getting "raw" on the leading edge after a dozen rides or so. While the tire isn't exactly designed to run the tread the opposite way, I did flip it in the rear to extend the life a bit without any adverse effects. The variety of terrain that this tire works on is what makes this a keeper.
