Strengths:    comfortable, easy to mount

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
I ride the 25mm version on my rear zipp303 wheel. After 4,000 km they still look ok. I don't race, the tires have been used mostly on tarmac, occasionally with dirt from the winter. I especially like the comfort of the latex tube. They are run @ 6 bar.
They almost ride as smooth as the Veloflex Roubaix.

Strengths:    Supple, grippy ride

Weaknesses:    Expensive

Bottom Line:   
I want to start with how impressed and pleased I am with Schwalbe's customer service. One of the tires I received would not hold air for more than 2 hours. I was willing to ship it back so they could check it, however, they shipped a replacement immediately that arrived much faster then they promised. Tires mounted easily enough. First ride was a weekday crit race (my first race on tubulars). One area I generally make up ground is bombing through the corners. I was just a touch hesitant for about 2 laps and quickly thought nothing of flying through corners with complete trust in the tires grip. Ride quality was noticeably good (even though I went with a higher pressure than I normally ride). Checked pressure again after the race and was right where I set it. Can not comment on durability yet, but so far I am extremely pleased with these tires. (Clincher tires that I run are Conti GP400S and Vittoria Diamante Pro).
