Smooth rolling, Bump absorbing, very solid and stable feel compared to the Oem bontragers. Much heavier than the old tires but the improvement In the ride quality Is worth it.
Bought these on sale to add a little more road friendly use to my cyclocross bike. These are a solid tire, meaning that I don't sweat the occasional gravel patch, pot hole or piece of glass, of which there are plenty of during spring in Colorado. This ability to give a lower priority to road conditions comes at a price. Not $ but weight, at 850g each the penalty shows up in the wheels. Currently have about 200mi on them and they show little in way of wear and cuts.
