Covered over 4000km on these, (28c on Mavic open pro rims, with a 90kg rider). Touring & fast commute, occasional kid on the back too. Nice comfortable tyre that rolls well. Although they are resilient you can still expect the odd puncture, the tough protection means punctures are usually slow, find it flat the next morning variety. At this stage the rear looks a tad beaten up, with the odd nick, but they are still good to go. These are not a cheap but you do get and a dependable tyre with good grip, even in the cold. I'd say it's one of the better 28c tyres you can buy, If your worried about weight the Schwalbe Durano is worth a look. Unfortunately 28c seems to be biggest size sold for these and other quality, light weight folding tyres. [Actual size on rim = 26.5mm]

I bought a pair of these 4 years ago and only had 5 punctures travelling on road , and canal paths and rough chippings but I did get some minor slashes on the sides and where they contacted the road. During this time I had side panniers each one fully loaded with about 20 kilos and top bag loaded with 5 kilos . However I had one problem with the front fitted tyre which started to absorb water and perished and wrinkled but I put this down to an unfortunate bad batch during manufacture as the main load bearing rear tyre did not get this problem.. Both tyres have reached their road worthiness after this period so I am investing in the same tyre new as they have lasted longer than other road tyres I have used in the past and I had a lot less punctures. You get what you pay for and I was using three sets a year using other cheaper various brands covering between 30 and 60 miles a day but did however suffer bad slipping on during icy conditions but were ok otherwise. Another important thing is to keep the tyre inflated to the correct pressure otherwise the speed performance drops and the more weight you carry the more often this has to checked but deflate them slightly during icy weather as this tends to reduce slipping because more tread is in contact with the ground but your speed will reduce slightly but only a mad man would ride at speed during these conditions.

Quite simply the best road tyre i have ever used. I was put off by the price but bought them anyway. As soon as i unpacked them it was obvious that i was getting a superior quality tyre. I will stick with this product from now on.

A little early to tell but so far (fingers crossed) no punctures in the first 300 miles and they feel secure in the wet

Great tires, this is my second. ONLY 4 star as they do not state that it is sold in singles.

These are amazing tyres - the best I've ever experienced both for performance and longevity. Just be aware (as I should have) that they are being sold here singly. If you need to outfit your bike, you will have to buy two. I am giving 4 stars because they could do a better job of making it clear that they are only selling one tyre to you.
