    Strengths:    Durable, flat resistant, very supple feel, fast rolling

    Weaknesses:    Somewhat difficult to mount tubeless

    Bottom Line:   
    This review is for the Roubaix 23c/25c Tubeless tire, which doesn't have its own category here. I've got these mounted on a Shimano Dura-Ace C35 road tubeless wheelset and now have about 1000 miles on them, and they are holding up very well. I just finished a charity century in very difficult wet Alaskan conditions which saw a lot of flats, and these tires came through unscathed. I'm 195 pounds and can run these down around 92 psi vs the 110 I run in regular tires, and they feel very supple and give excellent grip, even in sketchy wet conditions. They are noticeably faster rolling than the conventional Roubaix Pro tubes tires that I replaced. They are tougher to mount than conventional tires on this wheelset, and I need to use my compressor to seat the bead, but once seated and with 1.5 ounces of Stan's sealant in each tire they hold air very well, and I have had no flats or problems. These were an excellent upgrade, and I will buy them again.

    Strengths:    Comfortable ride.

    Weaknesses:    Both front and back tires blew out on me only after about 1000kms ...not while riding thank goodness!!! One blowout at home, and a week later, the other after riding 70kms ride!!! It blew up in my car while I was driving, I thought it was a gun shot!!! Can't imagine what that would have been like to blowout while on the bike!

    Bottom Line:   
    As someone else said..Specialized makes excellent bikes, but the tires suck!

    Strengths:    Great tire. Rolls fast, corners great, and resists punctures.

    Weaknesses:    None really.

    Bottom Line:   
    I bought these tires after my slicks were giving me persistent flats. I live in Colorado and put these tires on just about mid autumn. September some time. It is not April and they performed great through the winter. I put 800 miles on them over the winter months and there are still looking great. Sure, the back tire is showing signs of wear, but thats to be expected. I weigh over 200lbs and ride on asphalt. I have not had one flat, and that is impressive, mainly because I hit the occasional glass on the edge of the road. Some of the other posts complain that the tires wear out to fast and get flats. Not the case here. Based on how they are wearing I won't have to replace the rear tire until the end of the Summer season. A great tire at a really good price.

    Strengths:    Smooth ride,easy to change,good protection from flats.

    Weaknesses:    You won't pass the 1000 km mark. They just don't last.

    Bottom Line:   
    No major complaints,really. Only 1 flat in one year. But at 700 km they are baked. I still buy them tho,they are cheap and light.

    Strengths:    It does take some of the harshness out of rougher roads. Felt good on downhills

    Weaknesses:    My rear tyre only lasted 600km and blew in a race on a downhill. Pretty scary. Not impressed.

    Bottom Line:   
    completely unexpected blow out on a tyre that had did very few Ks and appeared in good condition. Something fundamentally flawed with them.

    I'm confused - Does my 2014 Roubaix Pro frame have a BB30 or PF30 bottom bracket?

    Trying to install a Praxis BB to use my Quarq Cinco 110BCD with Sram 975 cranks into my frame. I need to install the Praxis BB and need the tool, and I've read that the frame is both on separate occasions - PF30 and BB30. Then I've read that they're the same?!? Any help would be great. I'm ...

    No flats, luck? Roubaix Pro Versus Gatorskin

    Most of the posts I've seen compare the Gatorskin to 4-seasons, 4000S, etc. Ride quality is average, I get that. I have 28c Roubaix Pro tires on my Secteur Disc. I have probably been stupid and had them places where I shouldn't have. I've hit nice pavement cracks at 18mph, grass areas at almost ... Read More »
