Strengths:    Excellent tire for gravel grinding on primarily dry fire trails.
Very good tire for wet and dry sealed roads.
Very soft ride but appears to have little rolling resistance. Comfortable.
Paired with slime tubes- Never had a puncture!!

Weaknesses:    Not great in muddy conditions, slips on steep grades of fire trails up and down, but with narrower and non chunky tires than MTB you sometimes do get to walk steeper sections anyway.

Bottom Line:   
Overall I have had this tire for over three years of gravel grinding and occasional on road use to and from trails. The tire feels firm in dry conditions and holds the trail/road surface confidently. Not an MTB tire but a very good all-rounder.
