On the roads and the trails these tires have exceeded my expectations as well as my abilities. I had to really lay into a turn on a loose gravel/dirt road before I felt the bike start to skid out and the only reason was to see what the failure point would have been. Likewise when climbing a short steep hill in soft dirt I had no chance of making it up anyway. I've also but at least 60 miles on them just on the roads and the tread barely shows any sign of wear so far. Installing them was a breeze and I measured the width with some calipers and they are true to size, if anything a little wider. At max pressure they were 2.25 inches. When the time comes I will be buying these tires again.
