I Bought a pair of these tires on sale from Performance for 19.oo apiece. At 520 grams they are lighter than almost anything you can find, and still half the price. They've handled everything that I've thrown at them beautifully, and I'de recommend the to anyone looking for a good all around semi-slick. I wouldn't hesitate to buy them again. Plus I love the yellow color. I just wish I had found them before I bought my double fighters.....these are much better.

Wow, what a fast tire. Very predictable in the corners and when climbing. The front tire seems to get great traction at all times. It actually works well in wet and muddy conditions too. I turned the front tire around to go in the oppisite direction of the rear tire. The only time I lose traction is if I'm riding on the side of a rut. I had hard time finding them in the US and ended up getting them at www.mountainhomebicycleco.com

Strength:

Light & fast

Weakness:

Diamondgrip pattern wears out quite fast.

This is a very fast tire. The grip is ok, but I have fallen on my ass a lot more after starting using it... the speed is worth it though.

Strength:

Light tyres and very fast on hardpack. Just enough grip with diamond shaped center pattern and knobs on the side. Must have for racing in dry circumstances.
Predictable when cornering. Ok in sand. Rear tyre locks up nicely when braking.

Weakness:

Beware when the going gets wet or on technical climbs. You have to be really good and alert to get the max out of these tyres in these circumstances.
Average protection against punctures. Beware on gravel !

These tyres are a must when racing on hardpack. When the track is wet, watch out or mount another tyre with center knobs (Ritchey Z-MAX WCS). On climbs they are good on all but the hardest/technical climbs where they tend to lose grip when you least expect it.

Strength:

Very, Very fast. And I love the red colour.

Weakness:

Not always enough grip, but when the surface is hard it's the best semi-slick.

Very fast tires but sometimes they just slide away and then there's nothing to stop you from falling.
So it's Ride Fast, Fall hard.

Curse these tires, I'll never be happy with velociraptors again. I too bought these cheap from performance, thought I'd give some semi-slick tires a try. Holy bejezus, these things are fast! We've had a very dry summer back east, and the trails are HARD, so these tires are kicking ass. They slide a bit more in corners, but it's predictable. I'm sure once the trails get sloppy, I'll have to take them off (sigh), or end up in a body cast. The little diamonds on the tread get excellent traction it things aren't too loose, and on the hard stuff you can here them whispering faster, faster FASTER! I'm also fairly certain they're not going to last very long. Definitely worth a try.

I ride Team Bow with a pair of Diamant Grips. Rear works very good, front doesnt provide enough grip through faster corners (mud, gravel, sand...)
