 Grips really well in corners, and grips fairly well climbing. I notice some slipage on roots when climbing, but it doesn't spin out that often. My brother and I both ran these in the rear, I moved it to the fron and now use the Geax Sturdy in the rear (much better)

 I was surprised by these tires mud shedding abilities, I rode into some clay to test these out and none of the clay stayed on! As for weight, my last tires were big 2.5s, so I can obviously tell these are lighter.

 Not a fan of this tire in the front (Run a Weir in front and Moto in back...best combo IMO), but it is great as a rear tire. Has nice bite in all conditions and can't really find a fault to it.

 These are really great tires. They are pretty inexpensive, reliable, and quite durable. They have good tread for all sorts of trails.
