I have had the 2.1 wide version for about 4 years and probably 300 leisurely miles. Most were on city streets with occasional forays onto dirt trails. With no sporting pretense, these are cushy and I think perfect for the way I ride.
On hard surfaces, the tire presents continuous road contact. Ride is quiet with apparently low rolling resistance. When ground is soft, the reverse knobby thread sinks in a bit and provides pretty good traction. Thread is hardly worn and should be good for at least another 300. I've not had a flat yet.
Some years ago I took a spill on smooth ground with a mono-layer of probably 3mm gravel (like ball bearings). I chose these tires with the thought of not repeating the same again with smooth road tires. The thread pattern should allow firm ground contact without the constant noise of normal knobbies. I've had good luck so far.
Thank you for your feedback.
