Fast tyres

Posted01 May 2015
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Lightweight, Good value, Looks great
Cons: Poor quality
These tyres are fast when paired with my 60mm Roval wheels.
The odd thing is the 2 tyres I bought weighed different amounts, one weighed 206g and the other 221g which made we wonder about the build quality.
I didn't pay full price as I used the tyre amnesty to get 2 for £50 so they were great value.

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Lightweight, Good quality, grippy, super fast, supple
Cons: Expensive
I didn't think that my Continental GP4000's were slow tyres until i tried these, lightning fast and grippier than chewing gum stuck to your shoes, they have transformed how my bike feels at speed, the tread has so far looked fairly decent at wearing, but I didn't really buy them to do thousands of miles on I bought them to go really fast and grip like heck round corners. These tyres are born winners, seem even better than Vittoria CX's, and that takes some beating!

Great Grip and Very Fast

Posted27 March 2015
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
Cons: Expensive
I have ridden them about 300 miles now and can report they are fast... very fast. Turbo is a good name for them.
Despite the slippery roads they have good grip in the corners as well as having a good supple float to the ride. (difficult to determine I know)
They look good too and the tread so far has stayed intact with no defects showing in the side wall either.
I don't know about longevity, they are a racing tyre after all but seems like it will be reasonable compared to others I have ridden.
I would buy again but I bought these on the Tyre Amnesty so only paid £50 for a pair and they are worth that.
I generally ride these in dry/ damp conditions and that is what this review is based around. I have yet to go out in a deluge with these.

very fast and grippy

Posted23 February 2015
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Comfortable, Lightweight, fast rolling, good grip
Cons: not for winter
Bought these before a Mallorca trip, hoping they would help me keep up with my mates.
It felt like there was no resistance putting the power down on the flats, and accelerated nicely when needed.
On the descents I soon learned to trust them, even leaning right over on long mountain bends the grip was amazing and very confidence inspiring :).
In my hand before I fitted it tyre was very light (and thin), it has a puncture belt but I would only want to put it on summer/best/race bike.
About as fast as a tyre can get!

The best riding road tire I've tried

Posted31 March 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
I've fitted these to my new Roval Fusee SLX 23 wheels, and they're fantastic. Only one decent ride in so far, so can't say how durable they are, but they feel great. Very comfortable, very grippy and very light. My old Ultremos feel hard and slow by comparison.
Hard to say how they'll fare in the long term, but two of my riding mates punctured while we were out today and I didn't, so that's not a bad start. As a race tyre, or a Sunday best tyre I strongly recommend them so far.
