Strength:

Riding them in 25-622 on my commuter Guerciotti in winter (~200km/week). There is so much loose gravel on the roads here that it sometimes feels like offroad riding. Where all other tires give up (like the 4 seasons which surprised me with 5 punctures in one week) they have the best puncture resistance that I have ever seen and they last forever. If you pump them up to max pressure they roll reasonably well. Wet grip is okay. And the grip on snowy roads is decent for the amount of tread. I don't find them hard to put on though some people struggle a lot. The perfect commuting tire in winter if you hate punctures at -10C at 6 am. And in spring, when you bring out the light and fast tires again you will put out more watts after riding the heavier Marathon for a winter. So they combine puncture resistance and training ;o)

Weakness:

Puncture resistance comes at a price though. The tires weigh in at around 600g each at 25mm and you have to really pump them up to the max to have them roll good enough. They need some running-in for best performance
