Great tire and looks sharp!
I bought a tour/light gravel bike last year and started riding quite frequently. I found I enjoy riding roads (mostly hills) in my area. The factory tires the bike came with were okay, but since I'm riding road, I wanted a tire that had more of a road profile instead of the gravel like profile of the stock tire. Plus the factory tires were thinner in material so they were more susceptible to tube punctures. So I went on a hunt and found these tires. No reviews and a brand new model, I took a shot and bought a set. These are really nice tires!
My rims are tube 700c x 45 and these are among the only tires at that width that have a more road type profile. This tire feels far more substantial than the ones I replaced. To top it all off, the reflective stripe around the side wall gives these tires a classy look IMO. They don't feel flimsy and seem to be far more puncture resistant than my old tires.
If you're weight conscious then you may want to keep looking. But if you do a lot of tour riding or, like me run up and down the hilly roads in your area or just ride the flats, these are an excellent tire. I can tell already that I'll be picking up a set for my wife's bike soon and I would buy again.
