Strength:

Very light (180 grams), suprisingly good wear. Blue looks cool :-)

Weakness:

Rides "hard"; not as supple as Vittoria diamonte lights.

I'm actually very impressed with this tire. Lasted nearly a year with no flats. Rear tire is getting worn and has some chunks missing.

Strength:

Look Great. Front corners Very well.

Weakness:

$45 dollar rear tire = dead after first ride; one minor skid = dead tire. Can't afford that!

Very expensive tire that can't take the pavement. I have a navy blue Bianchi, love Hutchinson mtb. tires, and thought these tires would be perfect for me. Front tire is still going, and seems good -- rolls fine, takes high pressure, and corners 10mph mountain turns at 28-30 mph. The rear is where Hutchinson lost a road customer. First ride- minor skid on downhill, and the tire was down to the wires --- a near-$50 tire that is dead after one ride? No thanks! Can't afford that. The old standby, Michelin Hi-Lite Prestige has lasted me many, many miles, front and back, and has never let me down on the fast turns.
