I put these tires on my 2019 Trek Domane SL5 as a replacement for slicks that came with the bike. I was unhappy with the slicks as they did not feel safe on wet roads, or if there was some sand/dirt spilled, nor could I take them on the gravel tow path. These tires are perfect for what I want - low rolling resistance, confident grip to the pavement under most conditions (cornering on spilled sand, steel bridges, fall leaves, ice, etc.) and ability to take it on the gravel path for light gravel riding.
I got these in 28mm to replace my 25mm continental gatorskins, I immediately noticed some increased rolling resistance likely due to the tread on these tires. So far they have held up great, I'm a big fan of the reflective sidewall and the traction has been excellent. I ride a mix of dirtgravel and pavement on my commute and these have gripped well on all surfaces while wet and dry. Solid tire for the price
I primarily use this tire on a fixed gear commuting bike that occasionally sees some training time. I was after a tire that had good handling qualities under a variety of conditions (wet, gravel, dry) that was not a pain in the a to get off if I flatted. I was a little hesitant to get this one because of the cost. I like Continental tires (what I race on) and I was not disappointed by the performance of these tires in both metrics handling and ease of use. Worth the extra money, I will buy them again when I wear these out.
I purchased the 700x37 and use it on a commuting bike. The tire has held up in wet and dry weather, good roads and bad as well as gravel/dirt paths. Highly recommended for durability and flat protection.
this tire rides very quiet, firm and stable.
Very resistant to puncture from road debris.
being 38 mm it rides softer than the 28 mm I was riding on.
I ride the canyons climb to 7,000 feet and then come down aggressively
I have these mounted on my wet weather rims (Alex laced to shimano hubs) for my commuter bike (2014 kona Jake). It is outfitted with racks front and rear so getting a flat while loaded down is not an option. The pros are great mileage and wet weather traction. The con for me is that while loaded fully, tends to squirm around corners compared to the Freedom thick slicks I use in the summer. Also the tires came with a slight defect that causes wheel hop at high speeds due to a high spot in the mold.
I like the feel of these tires vs. the slicks I used prior to these. The tread may be a little slower ride but hardly noticeable if you're not racing.
Sturdy, not too heavy, and great visibility at night. This is my second set, but the first lasted more than two years of regular commuting and weekend road light gravel adventures.
I bought a pair of 700x37's 2 years ago for a 70-mile gravel road ride on my Specialized Tricross. Liked them so much I left them on for commuting. They feel faster than the 700x32 Specialized Borough tires that came on the bike and smoother too. After about 2000 miles there is still good tread on the back tire. And no flats, too. I'll definitely buy them again.
Ordered the 700x37c size, They arrived marked as 1 38 inches wide, which is 35c, not 37c. I could immediately tell they looked narrower than my Top Contact II tires, which measure a true 37c even though the labeling reads 35c. Finally swapped out one of the Top Contact II tires for one of these. Ta Da! It is noticeably narrower than the Top Contact II which is still on the other wheel. If I could post a photo showing the difference I would. I am not even certain the thing is 35c. Seem trivial to you? It's not for those of us who do loaded touring over various surfaces, including unpaved mountain passes.
We use these tires on a supermileage car that uses three 20 bicycle tires. Competed at speeds reaching 50 miles per hour without any problems or uneven wear. Excellent tire for the price.
i put these on my 29er mountain bike for when i ride around in the city. they seem to work well. much easier then rolling around with fat off road tires.
I recently purchased a Disc Trucker. I have limited mile that are a mixture of road and hard packed trail. With under 500 miles my one comment is gotta love them great all around so far.
This is my second pair. Wish I would have kept track of miles., but 3 years of three season riding over pavements and gravel. Never a flat, even when they had no tread left.
