Any one use or are familiar with the road tires from Kenda, specifically Kenda Kwick Roller Sports tires. They have the Iron Cap flat prevention system which is some type of Kevlar belting. Durability? Traction? Flat resistance? I'm getting a free pair as a warranty adjustment.

not too sure about those tyres but i used to use kenda kaliente with iron cloak protection. never had a flat despite running over glass and stuff. reasonably durable though not exactly the fastest tyre despite their claim of low rolling resistance (BS i reckon). traction is reasonable including in the wet (no wipe outs yet though i tend to be cautious in the wet regardless of what tyres i'm using). one thing i noticed about the kaliente is that the 23C looks and feels more like a 22C or 21C and can be quite difficult to mount on Campy wheelsets.
