Strength:

Wears like iron..five stars for wear

Weakness:

Makes up for it with absolutely no traction...one star for traction

Got a good price on this tire...using it on the rear...it is certainly among the most cut resistant tire I've used...it's very light...and seems like it will wear forever...I've got over 2K commuting miles on it and it looks like new But...it has absolutely no traction in the wet...would never use it on the front and will have to take it off for winter here in rain city...get me some more Michelin Silicium compound tires...best in rain Who cares how long a tire will wear if you crash when it rains ?

Similar Products Used:

Michelins (Silicium compound only) Their plain rubber has no wet grip either

Probably not as supple and nimble as pure race tires but for someone who doesn't race and hates changing flats, these are great road tires. My rear tire finally started to flat this week after 2 years and about 1500 miles. In those 2 years, I've never had a flat. I'm 180lbs and don't really care if my tires are 1.3444 ozs. heavier than Conti's or Axials.

Weakness:

Early models bulged and they do not ride as smoothly as conti's but they do not flat and roll forever.

There is no higher durability, fast tire made. Early teething problems (1999) and defects have been overcome--but probably too late as cannot find in stores and think Specialized quit making them. For strong big riders these are the only tires that can go 1500 miles before they are shot. They simply do not flat..

Similar Products Used:

Conti 3000's Vredestein tricomps etc max 2000 miles on each of those and Conti sidewalls are fragile.
