Strength:

Lighter and wider than my Tufo tubular clincher set up. No pinch flats. Good price.

Weakness:

Messy setup and maintenance when used with Stan's. Can be very frustrating setting up if you've never used Stan's.

I really like these tires. I've only ridden them for about three weeks. Mainly on multi-track and crushed lime stone. No problems with traction at all. I'm cornering at speed with confidence. I like the added benefit of puncture resistance. If you've ever set up a Stan's tubeless system, this is no different. I've become quite proficient using Stan's. A compressor is a must. Compared to what I was riding before (Tufo tubular clinchers), these seemed to roll much smoother. And were lighter than the Tufo set up.
