Strengths:    Cut resistant tread. Because of the smooth latex surface cuts can be filled with super glue, unlike butyl tyres. They are easy to take on and off. Easy to spot tread damage and remedy.

Weaknesses:    Walls are susceptible to cuts.

Bottom Line:   
I do randonees on a variety of bikes, including a George Longstaff trike. With low rolling resistance allied to high mileage, these tyres roll even better with latex innertubes, which renders the tyres even more puncture resistant. Excellent traction in wet and dry conditions. They also become more puncture resistant with a dusting of talcum powder between tyre and tube.

Strengths:    cheap, durable, Continentals!

Weaknesses:    they don't make me go faster. oh sorry that is me not doing enough training!

Bottom Line:   
I have done nearly 5000km on one pair and have no complaints. I train on them, I race on them, but I don't go out in the rain! Call me soft, but maybe that is the difference. I love Conti's and would only upgrade to maybe a lighter tyre if I thought they would be as good as these.

Strengths:    low rolling resistance
flat supression

Weaknesses:    a little heavy

Bottom Line:   
I didn't realize how good these tires were until I replaced them. They had a good stable feel with really low rolling resistance, and didn't flat often. When they did flat, you still had good control to come to a stop. They have been on my bike since '97 and had over 3000 miles on them when I replaced them.

Strengths:    smooth ride

Weaknesses:    flats, flats, and more flats

Bottom Line:   
I will never again buy these tires. Hell, if you offered them to me for free I would turn you away. I've never had so many flats as I have with these tires. It was not uncommon to have at least a flat a week. After having 2 flats in 2 consecutive days, I've finally decided to get rid of them.
