    Strength:

    Super performance, great traction and rolling resistance.

    Weakness:

    Hard to keep shaped to get on the rim.

    Being a fan of Deda products, I jumped at the chance to pick up a set of open tubulars from them. My tires in particular are the Giro di Lombardia slicks. Very good construction, clean and uniform. Getting them on the rim was a bit tough, they wanted to keep flattening out so some patience was required. Once on, they set up nicely. A quick ride of a couple miles to let them set in already showed they had potential for performance and handling. A few rides later and I can feel my confidence building with them. The last few tires I'd tried always seemed a bit skittish in corners, these are rail-steady. I haven't yet seen any tread-flatting on the rear that I've seen on other tires. I keep my tires generally around 110-120psi and this is one of the few times I can tell a difference with the rolling resistance of these compared to other tires. Very smooth and sure. I've only ridden them in the dry so wet performance is unknown although I've had slicks before (Michelin Carbons) that performed just fine. I expect these to be simialar. Tread life is unknown, but I've seen no appreciable wear so far.

    Strength:

    Little rolling resistance

    Weakness:

    A little hard to get on

    Durable, very little rolling resistance, smooth. I have ridden these tires for a year recreationally and am impressed with how fast they are. Reasonably light to boot.
