Huge upgrade over the stock tires on my Giant Contend AR.
Super supple but they seem pretty tough too.
They roll nice on pavement, with good grip on dirt roads.
A great choice if you want something a little less aggressive than the SK.
My only regret is not getting the brown sidewalls. Next time for sure.
I have these mounted on my Giant Revolt, which I use for road riding, and at the most, packed smooth gravel. On the road, they are exceptional. They roll nicely, and are quiet. I started at 60 psi, and rode that pressure for the first season. After deciding that my ride would improve with less pressure, I gradually backed them down to 40 psi (with tubes), and noted no drop in average speed. I consider the gravel bike my "SUV" and ride it more on the road, than any other bike I own. A great bike for early season rides when there is a lot debris on the road. These tires really work well, considering my use. I would buy again.
Tried these after riding schwalbe g-one in hope of better stability in turns, cant say i have it. I feel much more slippage in climbs and bounciness with the 43 size. I am 160 lbs and ride g-one at about 35 psi, ride mostly packed dirt. Also really hard to get them to seat vs g-one.
Fast rolling tire on hard pack gravel, pavement. It seems to have good puncture resistance so far on my rides of many many miles on all kind of gravel terrains. It's a bit hard to sit it for tubless. But can be done for sure.
Nice tire so far. I got 38mm, they measure 39.5 on my wheels. They roll a little better on the pavement that the last tires I had. Mounted easily with a pump with the tubeless booster on it.
These tires have been nothing but great. I've put over 1200 miles on them with one flat, one! I do a lot of urban riding from bike paths, hard packed dirt, gravel and a lot of street. Again urban riding with the most miles on the streets where there are so many thing where flats are common from anyway. The ware is excellent on these tires with the semi-smooth center. Can't say enough about how great these tires are.
Bought these to replace the OEM tires on my Giant Defy. Good tread, but not too ï¿½gravelly,ï¿½ a good compromise for my pavement riding with occasional gravel paths. Took some doing to mount tubeless, I finally got them seated.
Normally don't spend this much on tires but decided to give these a try. Installed on my cx singlespeed and greatly improved road ride quality. I highly recommend these for those that do a fair amount of on road riding.
I was looking for something that was fast rolling on the pavement and was able to ride on the hard packed gravel roads. I only run the SS on the rear and I run the SK on the front.
