Excellent touring tire.

PostedOctober 5, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Looks great
Despite lacking the aggressive tread of an off road tire, this tire grips very well in the wet on roads, and doesn't lock up when braking. It also rolls like a road tire. It seems to be puncture resistant (so far).

Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Looks great
Cons: Heavy
I use it since 4 months. No puncture. No sign of damage. I even do some trip in hills. But I ride in Marseille. The road are full of junk. After about 2000 km, the tire is always looking great. No sound when rolling. We don't feel the weigth at all. And the tire offers a excellent grip event on wet roads. A really great alternative to marathon plus, more expensive.

Pros: Good quality, Looks great
1300km on this tyre, on clean country roads, glassy urban roads and generally debris covered hard shoulders and not a single puncture. Decent grip and low rolling resistance. Happy with it, and the reflective strip is decent too.

Good chunky slicks with reflective side-stripes

PostedAugust 9, 2011
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Looks great
I needed to replace the decade-old 1.5" Specialized Nimbus tyres on my old-but-dear tourer in order to start commuting with it.
These tyres have a slightly more aggressive tread and a little more surface area- ideal for wet and wintery conditions while on good tarmac. Going from 1.5" to 1.75" didn't alter the handling much, but I did have to change my mud-guards' positions. I very much liked the hi-viz reflective stripes on the sidewalls (leave home at 6.20am). Much easier to fit on the rims that the old Specialized, funnily enough.
Am more confident about cornering in bad weather with these than with previous thinner tyres.
