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.
