The Positives: I ride mostly around Lake tahoe and the sierra foot hills with its low rolling resistance and aggressive side nobs this tire excels on almost any trail in the area. I'm a big guy (200lb)and tend to run this tire with a lower than recommended pressure and have never Had a pinch flat. The Negative: It will feel a little loose going into corners until you get it over enough then it just grabs which can take a little getting used to. Since it has a semi-slick middle tread quick/ hard straight line braking can result in a skid particularly on steep sections. In the mud it's just slippery.
Exactly as advertised, low rolling resistance with nich sidewall bite. Good for dry New England riding, even on rocky/rooty trails. The low rolling resistance is ideal for long fire sections. At high speeds, they're a little squirrelly, but the sidewalks bite well in corners. Mud does tend to hang onto the center knobs, but hasn't affected performance yet. I'm running tubeless with Stan's still playing with ideal pressure. I had one front tire washout which I attribute to too much pressure combined with pine needles over hardpack. Hasn't happened again since reducing front pressure to 24 psi.
I've been running a Happy Medium for my back tire on my hardtail for about 4 months. Excellent traction and fast rolling. Good grip on hard pack, roots and rocks. Only down side is when things get a little wet, traction is not so good on wet roots.
It grabs the surface and tends to brake the bike. But it is a very strong tire. I had the ruber and transform it on a slick tire, rs. The maxxis hookworm worked better than this tire, on a tandem bike.
