I tried these in both woods and mx and I didn't notice not one bit of weight savings over a tube, install is way more involved than a normal tube, and they cost WAY more than a normal tube. The only good thing I could see about these over a tube, is like stated above, you can run on them flat and the bead won't seperate from the rim. Which will get you back to the truck without messing up your rim, but that's about it. Not much use on an mx track.

Did you try them with lower tire pressures?

At our shop we sell a decent amount. Like you said, not much savings in weight, costly, and a little harder to install. But, you can hit square edges, rocks, and holes all day long and no flats. Kinda like a cheaper version of a mousse insert. Like jpd855 said, you can run lower pressure, but I wouldn't recommend below 10 psi. If you are aggressive and are somewhat sensitive to bike feel, the lower pressure will feel like a flat tire and kinda loose.
