Strengths:    These tires roll out incredibly fast, and roll easy, the best I have ever found.
I added 1 1/2 mph to my speed overnight.

Weaknesses:    Sidewall, durability.

Bottom Line:   
It kills me to not be able to give the highest rating, the speed comes with a price, low durability.
The sidewalls will start to show threads at 400 miles at 500 look out, failure, I have seen these same comments on other sites.Race day tires for me.

Strengths:    Great performace in all facets

Weaknesses:    poor wear, thin walled & cuts easy

Bottom Line:   
The performance of these tyres are really great. Fast, supple, grippy & look great but all this performance comes at a cost. They do not wear well (only got about 1500klm before I tossed them) & beware of road debris as they seem to cut easily. The side walls are especially thin, the slightest graze on the walls will damage the threads and you'll be throwing out the tyre before you complete your next 100klm. I really like these tyres but just can't justify buy new tyres evey 3 months. These do not make a good commute / training tyre best saved for race day.

Strengths:    Very Low rolling resistance - only 195g - Good looking in colours - No puncture in several hundred miles - Easy to change with no levers

Weaknesses:    None so far

Bottom Line:   
Superb Tyres so far and no punctures - They look great as well - replaced Vittoria Rubino Pro (great tyres for training) as Summer rubber and feel very fast - Tried Evo Corsas last year and cut up very quickly - have used Krylion carbon (v good) and various Spesh tyres on other bikes - these are as good as it gets and £48 pair in UK is good value. Few small nicks but I always clean them down and check after a ride, seem a good match for DuraAce 7850 CL wheels. One other plus point is that they slip on easily without using levers and will be easy to get off.

Bottom Line:   
Very good tire except from puncture resistence. 4 punctures in 3 weeks (aprox 1400 km). Driving same routes. With Vredstein I have normally 1 to 2 piunctures a year!
