I am a schwalbe fan, so my opinion may be bias as I have 5 other sets tyres of this brand.
The tyres look fine, fitted them without strugling. It is hard to comment on puncture portection as it is down to chance, but the grip is very good on slippery, muddy winter roads.
I have noticed they behave well and gave me confidence with cornering at speed on doubtful roads surfice. Would recomend them. The weight difference against other top of the range winter road tyres may be off putting, but frankly I have not noticed any slugishnes, and rather loose a smidget of speed but not have to stop to fix a puncture whilst shivering.
