This is a fast tire! It rolls well but still has enough grip to allow for solid, confident climbing and descending on loose, dry terrain. Also works well on slick rock. Only draw back is that the tread wears down pretty quickly, leading to noticeable slippage on loose or steep terrain. But for the price the tire is a great deal.
Only been on one ride so far but for the riding i do here in southern Pennsylvania, these tires are exactly what i was after. I have great traction in the hardpack heavily traveled trails as well as the corners. Also have good stability on the minor downhill sections we have here. All in all after just one ride on these, i would be shocked if i didnt continue to love these treads and most likely will be getting another set after these wear out. I wish i had a little more time in them to see how well the knobbies hold up to some of the mpre rocky trails i ride but time will tell.
