Strengths:    ~ Easy to mount
~ Long 48mm valve stem
~ Creamy ride quality, similar to that of full Tubular


Weaknesses:    ~ Hard to source
~ Not cheap, for something that has to be replaced annually


Bottom Line:   
I like these far better than Michelin AirComp Latex - which frequently blistered like a snake that ate a Football. I know they are made by the same company in Thailand - but the Vittoria seems to be of much better size, durability than the Bontrager Latex or Michelin.
