Strength:

As a tyre I rate it as 3/5, but 5/5 for the value and mileage. Got a pair as stock on my Gusto RCR Team bike with sealant installed, managed to do 2600km+ before the front tyre punctured due to a very big cut in the sidewall. Rear tyre is still going strong at 3800km+ without any cuts on the sidewall nor any punctures. Only the front tyre has since been replaced with a Vittoria Rubino Pro tub. 700km into the Vittoria I experienced a puncture due to a tiny stone that got into the centre tread but thankfully the sealant managed to do its job well. I would definitely recommend the Maxxis Forzas as an all purpose all-year long tyre.

Weakness:

It gets very minor cuts on the centre tread very easily, as well as myself being unlucky with getting a huge cut on the sidewall of the front tyre pretty early on its life before it gave out on 2600km. Tiny stones also embed themselves into the centre tread pretty easily too, however the kevlar protection belt they built into the tyre has managed to do its job very well by preventing any punctures even after 3700km+. Grip is generally okay, however straight line traction in the wet is pretty low so you will skid a lot on the rear tyre.

This is a very well built tire that gives up very very little to other much more expensive tubular tires . They mount to the rim without trouble and are perfectly round with no hop when spinning the tire while in a bike stand . The ride quality is not quite as good as a higher end tub but very close as is the weight . This is a fantastic tire for everyday use and should prove to be every bit as good in race conditions . Why spend more on high end tubs for marginal gains . This tire will do the trick just fine for most of us on all fronts .

Strength:

soft, comfortable ride

Weakness:

Slow, sluggish response, flimsy construction, weak side walls

I can recommend these for a day-to-day tub. Not for racing - you won't the world alight with these.
