Strengths:    Looks Nice

Weaknesses:    Durability
Ride Quality
Cornering Ability
Dry Rot Very Quickly


Bottom Line:   
Sidewall splits, very abruptly, for apparently no reason. A road tire that can't handle 110 psi without shredding, WHAT? I bought a 2 sets of these and 3 out of the 4 tires have had major catastrophic failures within the first few hundred miles. I feel confident the fourth would if I kept riding it. Very dangerous tires. They may be puncture resistant, but none have lasted long enough to find out. Overall I am very disappointed.

Strengths:    These tires are great for a straight smooth long bike path. They are hard as a rock. A little tough to put on the rim, spray a lube around the rim and tire makes it a lot easier. I like the stiffness and the non wear on them.

Weaknesses:    I did purchase one and after mounting the tire, it formed a bubble. Took the tire off and noticed the carbon fiber in one place had separated. I have purchased more of these tires since that happened and have never had that problem again.

Bottom Line:   
Best tire for the bucks that I have found.

Strengths:    Price is right. Smooth which is great for indoor trainers. Durable.

Weaknesses:    Difficult to mount onto rim

Bottom Line:   
Great, strong, bald tire. The only problem is getting them on and off rims. They are "incredibly" tight-fitting. There is no way you will get these on your hands or even basic blastic tire-irons. You will need heavy-duty plastic ones. Be prepared to struggle, seriously.
