Best training and light touring tire around.
Excellent ride quality. Ride harshness is quite acceptable for high pressure skins. They stick very well. Some of the pricier Vittoria and Michelin full on race tires and Conti may be stickier, but this tire really hangs in the big sweepers and the tight stuff. Rolling resistance is also very low subjectively, with not much discernable difference from full on slicks and much better than similar sized touring tires.
Contis are long wearing, and tough as nails. I am getting about 3000 miles on a rotated set and I am 200 lb. The only thing that has defeated one in my experience is a 3 inch piece of sharp steel that went lenghtwise into the tire. Glass, goatheads, rocks, never a problem. When they start flatting, they are worn out.
I run these just below 120 psi in the hope that this provides a bit of margin for impact and heat buildup.
Thank you for your feedback.
