Strengths:    Ride quality. Tire pressure.

Weaknesses:    Longevity? Not sure if my skid is a fair assessment. Need to bring a tire and tube (and rimstrip if you pulled it out like I did!)for flats.

Bottom Line:   
These were great when I first bought them. Can run high tire pressure without losing comfort. I raced several road and Crits with these. Unfortunatly I did a short skid with these and they blew-out shortly thereafter.

Strengths:    Bomb proof! No flats over 4,000 miles

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
These tyres are bullet proof. I mounted a pair on my Reynolds Stratus DVs for Spring 2006 and rode them 3,000+ miles before replacing the rear due to the threads starting to show. The front is still going strong with over 4,000 miles. No flats so far and I've hit plenty of crap in South-Western Connecticut. I've never experienced any slip and I usually run 9 bars of pressure (130+ lbs). They ride nice and corner very well.
