All purpose tire at a great price

Light enough for the weekend group ride. Durable enough for daily commuting. The Stradius is really one of those products that can do it all. Just a great performing, versatile tire at a great price.

From what has got to be the only company still making bike tires in Japan.

Still a great value

I've got about 2000 miles on my original set and expect 1500 more before I might have to replace the rear.

I just bought these as a set of spares for when that time comes.

I've had NO trouble with flats and enjoy the light weight in the 26mm size on my Hybrid. It makes acceleration so much easier and sportier handling.

I'm a 230 lb., 65 year old guy with emphysema and still did 70 miles in one day with these on my hybrid. I would have been hard pressed to do 1/2 that with the 35mm Specialized Armadillo Flak Jackets that came on the bike. They're just too heavy/stiff, even at the high pressure (100 PSI)

Max pressure listed on the sidewall is actually 140 PSI vs the 115 PSI listed on the web page. I run them 100-110 Front & 110-120 Rear, which allows me to go a few days before I have to top them off.

Don't waste the money.

I purchased these tires on sale 3 weeks ago......since then I have experienced more flat tires than I've had in the last 4 years combined. Unbelievable- what a waste of money. I replaced my worn Continental Ultra Sports with these - never again. I don't think I had one single flat on the Ultra Sports, and I've honestly lost track over the last three weeks just how many times I've been stuck on the side of the road...it has to be at least 8 times now.

I'm going back to the Ultra Sports.

Love em'

Replaced my Armadillo tires with these (700x26) on my commuter bike. These rolled much faster and after 1200 miles, not a single flat. My average speed improved by a couple mph as well.

They were a little tricky to get on, but not too bad. I have very little experience with flats as well so that could have been the problem.

Would have logged more miles on them, but I sold the bike.

Looking to buy the 700x23's for my road bike now. Definitely a solid buy.

Good no frills performer.

I was expecting a somewhat wider tire when I saw the 26 designation. Mine measured 24.5mm on a standard rim even after stretching for a week. But considering that I was looking for a slightly narrower - clearance problems - than a Michelin Krylion 25 which measures 26.5mm, I'm fine with it.

There's only so much you can do with nylon and rubber, but they seem to have put just the right amounts in the right places, rides very well, corners fine, rolls OK. And you don't have to decide whether you like the styling because there isn't any. Just round and black. I've done worse at twice the price.

Great tire for the money

I have ridden a wide selection of road tires and bought these for my girlfriend for her commuter road bike. They are a great deal and they seem every bit as good or better than all of the overpriced Continental tires I have had on my road bike. Plus, unlike the Continental tires, you can actually get them on and off of your rims without breaking tire levers or your fingers. I have always like Panaracer's mountain bike tires, so I thought that I would give these a try. I think they are well worth what they cost. Made in Japan. Enough said.

My favorite tire - long lasting and inexpensive!

I ride a lot over various terrains, usually by myself, and really don't enjoy getting flats. These tires are pretty bullet-proof, usually takes a big piece of glass or a nail to get through. If they do puncture, the casing won't cause subsequent flats (which is the biggest issue I have with some high performance tires). The price is right, and they last a long time, even if you over-inflate them for TTs )

The 700 x 26c gives a fantastic cushy ride commuting or doing social rides, great puncture resistance too!

I purchased 2, size 700 x 26c for my single speed conversion. The larger air volume gives a great cushy and stable ride on the increasingly chewed up city streets around here. With plenty of rubber they handle small bits of glass and gravel nicely. I haven't flatted so far with over a year on the back tire. Although rated at 90 to 140 psi I usually inflate them to 100 psi when I want to make time and they spin nicely. I weigh 150lbs which leaves plenty of room for heavier riders to adjust accordingly. I've let them go down to 70 or 80 before I notice they are getting too squishy, so less maintenance. The weight at this size might make it tough to hang on at 20mph or climbing but fine for social rides. The sidewalls appear to be holding up great unlike similar tires (Zaffiro's) which show cracking quickly. Easily worth a few extra dollars and a steal on sale.

Excellent Value

I bought these in the 26C size as a low cost alternative to the 35C tires that were mounted on my hybrid.

As expected, the difference was amazing.

My bike has rather wide rims 22mm, but no fitment issues whatsoever. I wouldn't go to a 23C however. I think that would be pushing the issue too much.

In about 800 miles over 3 months, I've had no issues.

I've also been pleased with the service from this company.

I live about 80 miles down the freeway from them, but I received 1 order(of about 4) to my doorstep 23 hours after ordering it.

Good value, hart to mount

These tires are relatively inexpensive training tires that seem to be wearing well. However, they are really hard to mount. I put them on my wife's bike, which may have been a mistake - I'll find out the first time she has a flat....

Good all around tire

I purchased the 700x23 size. I have put about 150 miles on the tires, and performance is completely acceptable. Grips well on dry pavement. I have not attempted use on wet surfaces. So far, no flats. A good tire for the price.

Other thoughts The kevlar on these tires is extremely stiff. I'm not sure if it was my particular rims (which are somewhat old), or these particular tires, but I had a difficult time getting these tires mounted, compared to some Michelin tires I purchased several years ago. Expect to use some tire levers. Also, you will definitely need to inflate these to 100 PSI, so be sure you have a pump that can generate that much pressure.
