Strengths:    price

Weaknesses:    everything else, they do not stay on the rim of even new bikes, a very poor design and not recommended for any type of riding

Bottom Line:   
Looks like a nice vittoria cx tire in the box, a bit difficult to installas they are molded fat. Tire tread is hearingbone but tread thickness is very minimal.

Strengths:    NONE

Weaknesses:    This is one scary and very unreliable product. Not safe at any speed or for any price. Stay away!

Bottom Line:   
Horrible experience and had numerous blow outs with the tire coming off the rim in several instances. No confidence in these tires whatsoever. Like previous review noted chucks of rubber came off the front tire and the tire seemed to stretch well beyond its original size. Switched back to my Vittoria Evo and all is well again.

Strengths:    light & supple

Weaknesses:    rubber simply crumbles. very difficult to install

Bottom Line:   
ONE ride - rear tire shot. Chunks of rubber simply fell off. Numerous cracks.
Front doesn't look much better. I'll write these off. Not straight or round.
Good ride feel - so what?
