Good training tyre

PostedJune 6, 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Lightweight, Looks great
Fitted these tyres to train on - wanted something durable and with a low rolling resistance. 300 miles in and no complaints. They fit easily - no broken thumbs trying to get them on and so far have no punctures. Only used them on the dry so far so can't comment on wet performance.

Great value, could do to be better made...

PostedAugust 5, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Lightweight, Looks great
Cons: Poor quality
Had the tyres on for a couple of weeks now, on the 3rd day of having them went on a 30 mile ride, when i got home, noticed they had started to blister a little. they haven't got any worse since then, so putting it down to wearing them in. the tyres themselves have very little grip, yet to have a go in the wet, so will have to wait and see how that goes.

Great all round tyre

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Looks great
Great tyre, predictable handling in all conditions, bit slower rolling and a bit heavier than a race tyre but done over 1500 miles on a pair of these and no punctures! thumbs up from me.

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Lightweight, Looks great, amazing grip
Bought these for the winter as training tyre on my Spesh Secteur Sport. Incredible feel and grip in wet greasy conditions due to road salt. Very well worth the money and cheaper here on Evans website than anywhere else i could find. Free post to Northern Ireland in 2 days. Could'nt ask for more.

Robust, fast rolling and stylsh

PostedSeptember 30, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
Had this tyre for about 3 weeks and roughly 200 miles, including a 60 mile sportive and some London runarounds. Its much lighter and spins up better than the gatorskins I had on it before while also having a softer ride. No punctures yet either, or any sign of getting one. Getting some compliments too since I have styled my white 1.5 trek with red tape, bottle cage and these tyres. They look good!
