Strength:

-Good grip in all conditions. Loose grip with a linear feel.
-Good ride (for such a narrow tire and, therefore, high psi)
-Closely spaced knobs roll pretty fast

Weakness:

-Wear out extremely quickly
-Very, very narrow

These tires came stock on my 06 Jamis Nova. Overall, I have been pretty impressed. Good in many conditions: loose soil, snow, ice, mud. For such a narrow tire, they are pretty confidence inspring.

Still, I have only had the bike one month (I ride a lot) and the rear is nearly bald in the center. I would say it is from too much road use, but they haven't seen the road that much, and the rear has worn much more quickly than the front, as is typical of off-road use.

Also, these tires are narrow...really narrow. The narrowest cyclocross tires I have ever seen. No way they are a 700x35. Their bite is pretty impressive considering their size.

Though they buzz a bit on the road, the close knobs roll quite well and feel stable.

Would I buy them again...probably not.
