Strengths:    Excellent handling, Excellent puncture resistance.

Weaknesses:    Sidewall separation

Bottom Line:   
I liked these tires at first. They handle well, and are very puncture resistance. After about 500 miles they started feeling squirmy. Further investigation led to my discovering the bead separating from the sidewall in three or four places. The sidewall cord is parted all the way through and it appears all that was holding back a catastrophic blowout was a thin layer of inner sidewall rubber.

I wondered if maybe I had an outlier, but I found other reviews online at REI and it seems others have had this happen too. I recommend nobody use these tires for anything whatsoever. Blowouts at speed are not much fun.

Strengths:    Thick, reflective sidewall

Weaknesses:    Feel a little squirrely if underinflated(guilty as charged)

Bottom Line:   
I yanked the stock tyres off my seek2 and put these on and couldn't be happier. I have tried to kill them by riding down trash strewn allies, along gravely railroad tracks, and glass covered pavement. Result:my confidence has returned.
