    Strength:

    Low rolling resistance

    Weakness:

    Smallest size 32c (would like to see 28c offered)

    Love these tires. Great grip in all conditions. Ridden them in snow and rain. Great puncture resistance. Low Rolling resistance. Gives me alot more confidence in foul conditions. Pleasantly surprised at the low rolling resistance on a large diameter tire.

    The original tires that came with my Specialized Tri Cross were the standard 32C Specialized Borough Cx's. They were terrible. Flat the first day and flats there after. Flats on paved paths and flats on crushed limestone. Then I read on Specialized's web site that they have a satisfaction guaranteed program. I switched out the orignal Borough's for the Armadillo Elite Boroughs and have had no problems since. My LBS (Kozy's) didn't charge me for the upgrade.
