Strengths:    Light, grippy, smooth riding even on broken or grooved blacktop pavement.

Weaknesses:    None really. I have an aluminum single speed, and it rode HORRIBLE at 100 psi with these tires. I lowered the pressure to 85psi, and the bad ride was gone.

Bottom Line:   
You guys that are having multiple flats on these, read the sidewall? Does it mention ANY kind of flat protection? Nope, it does not. Don't blame the tires for the roads you ride on. The debris on your roads is what's causing your flats, not the tires. Get some tire liners, heavy duty tubes, or tires with flat protection.

With that said, I am totally satisfied with these tires so far. Very good ride, and great handling. I love the way they sing on rough paved roads. Call me weird but I like that sound these tires seem to make when you're cruising along at 15-20mph.

Strengths:    They lasted one month ( <700 miles).

Weaknesses:    They failed in less than one month.

Bottom Line:   
I loved the bike (Giant Seek1) so much that when it was stolen I immediately went and purchased another. First thing I did was replace the tires. On my first bike (that was stolen) the tires were good for about a month and then they started flatting on a regular basis. One had a cord pop and produced a lateral bump in the tire. At that point I replaced both. A friend with a Seek 2 had a similar experience with the same stock tires.

Weaknesses:    Flats galore!

Bottom Line:   
These tires came on my Giant Seek 2 which I got last fall. Enjoyed the sleek thread pattern which even seemed to work fine in the rain. Did approximately 700 km on them last year and had no problems.

This year I am at a bit more than 1000 km (total) and I have already already had five flats on them. I scoured the interior and found fine metal splinters which I think may have been from the tire itself. The treads are fine, and the bike was stored inside for the winter. Has not been too hot this year. The other reviews here have confirmed that I just need to get new tires.
