Strengths:    Smooth ride, good grip

Weaknesses:    Easily cut and needed to discard prematurely, while still plenty of tread.

Bottom Line:   
Unless you only ride smooth roads, no rough spots, debris, even gravel, I can't recommend. They ride smooth, grip very well, but seem very fragile, get small tears easily. If I didn't have Mr Tuffy liners, I'd have thrown all 3 out quickly. As it is, one lasted <200 miles before a small tear along edge of tread/sidewall caused a noticeable bulge at <100 psi. Another got a huge bulge along edge of tread/sidewall after 1400 miles; outside looked OK, but inside showed something odd (to me) as if woven casing coming apart. Last one OK after 1500 mi on rear, but many small cuts, etc., that might be a problem wiothout the tire liner.

Similar Products Used:   Vittorias (can't recall model) that came with bike lasted forever--more than 5000 miles on front, still had tread and could probably go longer.

Bike Setup:   Felt F4 as spec'd
