Strength:

Smooths out NYC roads even cobblestones are bearable. Durable, comfortable, best large sew-up now that Paris-Roubaix Setas are nowhere to be found

Weakness:

Price, availability and that its not silk

Great sew up when the roads are not great.

Strength:

Measure out to 25.5 mm. No other sew-up comes close for comfort. Not as lumpy as Conti Competitions or Sprinter 250s

Weakness:

Only available in ugly green. I seem to need to reglue Vittorias after long rainy rides, never had to do this with Conti's.

Big fat footprint for comfort and grip. Supports my 210 lbs and is still comfortable. The last 2 looked really deformed (entire tire was skewed towards one side of basetape)when not inflated, but looked correct (even and round) when inflated. Although inflated and stretched for 2 weeks, I had a valve stem failure within the first 10 km of actual riding recently, they refused to warranty them because they had been glued. If they were still available, I would purchase the 25 mm Sonderklasses but these are all that's available if you want big. Mapei wins Paris-Roubaix every year on them.
