The Lithion 2 has decent flat resistance. It allows for a good road feel, and gives a comfortable ride. It's not a race weight tire, but it performs well in club ride situations. At 180 lbs, I'm no lightweight but can ride a pair of these for over 2,500 miles without a thought.

Solid tire for the money

Bought these tires about 5 months ago and I've put about a 1000 miles into them.

No flats and good grip. Also, I've been running lower pressures (80-90 psi) reliably.

Good performance tires and a great value. Would rate 5 but it needs at least another 1k miles to earn it.

I wouldn't race on this tire but it's a great tire that's reasonably fast and puncture resistant. Good looking tire too with color options for matching, if you're into that.

These tires are very smooth on the road. I can also put them on my rims without tools.

Not too good in puncture resistance! I flatted 15 miles into my first ride on them and 5 miles into my second. I only ride my road bike on streets and maintained bike paths

This is a great training tire. Not for riding on the trainer, but outdoors when you aren't racing.

Good price and a good feel.

The Lithion 2 tire runs smoothly, corners like on a rail, and has a supple road feel. The tire has average resistance to cuts and thorns. Overall, it represents an excellent value versus performance relationship.
