    Strength:

    Virtually flat free. I get about 5K miles out of each one. Can over-inflate to 110psi.

    Weakness:

    Heavy-ish. Would be noticeably slower if I only inflated them to the spec 90psi. Pricey.

    Great commuter/touring tire. The only flats I've ever had were running over 4" nails (twice) in 1/4 mile (box of nails fell off a truck or something). I've been using these tires for 4+ years, commuting 30 miles/day and on weekend recreational rides. No other flats than noted above. Runs over glass, star thistle, cactus spines without a problem.
