Very fast and light.
- I've put it through the wringer
These things move uphill, downhill, and every which way extremely fast. They are light, too. Additionally, I haven't had one flat on them yet and I typically run a bit rough on my tires to the point that I get more flats than the next guy. I've been extremely happy with these tires so far. I use them for XC and for riding the road to my local XC trails. I've done a couple races on them and I can notice a difference in speed, for sure. Anyone getting these tires can probably guess they don't hook up as well in the corners and they don't do well in anything wet. Anything that's lose over hard, you better be on your guard. Be timid as hell until you know their limits. But for a fast rolling, light weight tire, I'd argue these probably hook up better than the others out there. I'm running them front and back and I have about 600-700 miles on them.

Nino Schurter runs these...
- I've used it several times
Since these are the tire of choice for the fastest guy in XC racing, it only stands to reason that if I run these tires, I will also be the fastest guy, at very least the fastest guy at my local races. Right? These roll mega fast, they are super light and offer more grip than you would think. With all of that said, this is really a racing tire and I wouldn't recommend it for general trail use. I feel like the traction was better than I had anticipated, but not as good as my trusty Ikon/Ardent race combo, at least during dusty mid-summer rides here in Utah. When the dirt is more packed and less loose, these things really shine.

How are these compared to Schwalbe's Thunder burt? Racing ralph? I usually run ralph/burt combo for crazy speed or ardent race/ikon combo for loose dirt.
