I have had these tires in the past and they are the best I have every had. I managed over 5000 miles on them with minimal flats throughout that period. I totally recommend these tire.
If you are looking for a high quality tire for your road bike and don't want to break the budget - look no further. This tire has it all - looks, fantastic fit and durability!
Bought another one of these to replace the ultra sport. Worth the extra money in my opinon. I also installed tufy liners and the thorn proof tubes and it all fit fine and easily on my rims. Riding 10 to 15 miles a day on asphalt and I have a 500ft gravel driveway and no problems so far.
I have put about 100 miles on these tires so far. So far, they are holding up to their description. Have run over some pieces of glass and been ride. They are pretty difficult to put on the wheels.
New to riding road bikes, only 1 year in. This was my first tire purchase, put around 700 miles in on them, and they are still going strong. One small issue is that there is cracking on the side walls of both tires, but performance does not seem to be affected. Looking at different tires for my next set to see how they go.
I am very happy with these road tires, but the thing is these road tires are advertised with a maximum inflation of 102 psi, but the sidewall indicates a maximum inflation of 116 psi. To be honest, these are difficult to mount onto the rims of my mid 1980s Takara Sport 10 and I already broke two tire levers and punctured one tube while I was attempting to mount the first tire. I am quite sure I will be satisfied with this product by the time this WNY weather starts getting warmer.
I've been riding these tires for a while now and I've never had any problems with them. I ride regularly and do 20 mile rides often. I've never had a puncture. These tires are durable.
Tire is very tough and ,thus, a heavy tire. I can tell you this much though, you will never have another flat tire again. If you ride more than 40 miles you will really start to feel the weight factor of these tires. Can't really find too many great tires in this size anymore. I like this tire.
