    You can run lower pressure for low traction situations.

    I never get flats anymore, pulled two small thorns from the front tire and one from the back, a couple weeks ago. white stans sealant bubbled from all three holes and never went flat! gotta love it!

    I prefer standard tires converted to tubeless. Not only are they lighter, offer a better selection, they are also much cheaper.

    Biggest advantage for me is lack of flats. Biggest downside is losing the excuse of getting flats. Now I have to make up all new excuses for being slow.
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.
