Awesome tires

Posted11 July 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Lightweight
Excellent tires. Durable, reliable and very quick considering the size. Find it very difficult to fault these.
I disagree with Andyspain comment ''Even worse, wet conditions provide absolutely no confidence in these tyres as they loose adhesion with the road leading to lack of rider stability and control.'' I find they grip well in all conditions are not loose. It is true that these tires do have additional sticky compounds such as the 'black chili' compound you can find on other manufactures however this can slow you down, reduce overall odo. Perhaps the issue is about committing to corners and weight distribution, rather than the actual tires?
I've ridden over 230 miles on the same pair, including thorough out the English winter from London to Reigate. I've managed to get 2 flats, which I think is a fantastic return considering the mileage I've covered.
I am due a replacement. Getting some as I write this....

smooth lightweight tyre

Posted24 September 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Lightweight, Looks great
Cons: dry weather only
Ideal for good quality roads, sensible riding and dry conditions. they are deffinately not reccomended for bad roads, cobbled lanes or even the need to jump pavements. Even worse, wet conditions provide absolutely no confidence in these tyres as they loose adhesion with the road leading to lack of rider stability and control. As a commuter I find they are great for summer use and help reduce further the wieght as well as reducing over all size, an important factor for my folding bike. After 6 months of continual use I started to get punctures, which on closer inspection, were being caused by gashes in the side walls. These were probably caused by bad road conditions and not maintaining high enough pressures to prevent the side walls coming in contact with the road. The puncture resistant strip does work well and with careful use they should have lasted longer. I now have a set of shwalbe marathon plus for winter and purchased another set of kojaks for next summer.

Cost performance highest!

Posted12 August 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
The highest performance is demonstrated as a slick tire.
Since the tire itself is light, it is light.
However, management of air pressure is briskly required.

Run is light

Posted18 March 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Lightweight, Looks great
It is a change from the Schwalbe Citizen that are installed on Tern N8,
Running has become very light for thin became slick,
Puncture resistance is now so I do not know yet,
I think that it is cost-effective products very good.

Great value and durability for commuting

Posted11 January 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Comfortable
Smooth ride and light enough for a budget tire. Previous tires that were more expensive start to strand in the walls after a few months. This is robust.
