Strengths:    Nice entry level tyre. Provides reasonable grip and traction on most surfaces without sacrificing too much due to excess weight. You'll happily ride on the road with these until you get to the fun part and take them into fairly well groomed terrain where these will not fail you. And they are reasonably priced.

Weaknesses:    Did not hold up to bindis, 'a weedy plant known for its sharp needled seeds' (thank you wikipedia) and fairly common on lawns and on the side of the road. Their spikes are maybe 2-4 mm long? Granted, these little darlings are tough even when dry and brittle. But a split second and eight punctures later I was beginning to have my doubts about what 'terrane' actually means. Possibly something along the lines of 'easily compromised by vicious Australian flora'

Bottom Line:   
They are a feel-good, reasonably light, all purpose set of tyres that do pretty much exactly what it says on the packaging - regrettably they did not stand up to an 'all terrain' environment involving common garden weeds down under. Since I liked them very much up until that point I feel somewhat torn writing this review, much like the tubes these failed to protect.
