Strength:

Look good. Light. Roll well and corner great.

Weakness:

Not very durable. Perhaps good for racing, but seem to be for short duration purposes rather than recreational riding.

Bought these to show support for the team and because I thought with carbon characteristics they would be tough and durable as well as light. They certainly perform well, with the slick portion of the tire in the center and very grippy treads on the sides for cornering. The ride is very good and they are fast. However, I had a sidewall puncture on the rear that trashed the tire after only 300 miles. The front tire is still ok after about 800 miles, but I won't ride a Hutchinson on the rear anymore. I only ride flat, paved bike trail with this bike, and avoid glass, I have had several sets of Hutchinsons, and not very good luck with flats with any of them.

Strength:

Comfortable riding tire.

Weakness:

This tire flats about every 50 miles. Easily cut from road debris, it is not very puncture resistant at all.

Thought I'd try something new and I have decided to return these tires.
