Features include the R2C dual compound rubber for an outstanding combination of grip, speed and agility. Rolling resistance is reduced further thanks to its smooth center tread and textured shoulders. Iron Cloak flat protection offers a little extra peace of mind without adding too much weight.

Light, fast, good feel, but cut way too easy
I have had these tires for a few months and a few hundred miles. They're fast and they feel good, but they are cut to pieces. Every little pebble that squirts away nicks the tires. Some of the nicks are through to the protective belt - I can see it. No flats, but I'm not exactly comfortable going into a downhill sweeper at 40mph on tires full of small holes. And I ride on generally good roads and off-street bike paths, so it's not like they're going over glass-strewn roads. I guess you could use these for just race days, but for regular use they are not durable enough.
