Is it worth this kind of money will tell. Have only got 300 to 400 miles on these and so far no cuts or flats from sharps. Tire seems to be very grippy and handling is as expected, good.
I've ridden a lot of tire brands, and I keep coming back to the Ultremo! Great combination of decent price for the quality, great ride, plenty of grip, decent mileage, and good resistance to puncture. Need I say more??
I put in 2-300 km a week they work well and they are easy to change tubes. They ware out fast.
I love riding these tires. They have low rolling resistance, and the grip and profile had me cornering better and more confidently right away. However, my first pair got a major slice in the rear within the first 100 miles. The tire was shredded, which was tough to swallow for the price, but I loved riding them so much that I chalked it up to bad luck and bought a replacement that day. I haven't had another issue yet and still love the feel of these. Definitely recommended for a race clincher, but not for a durable every day tire.
I purchased these tires three weeks ago never had so many flats in my life the tires are falling apart. They just look good. Back to my continental S tires had them for a year and they still in great shape.
MONEY WELL SPENT!
I Love these tires! High profile, fast rolling, super in the turns, light weight, good traction on climbs, easy on and off, feels like a tubular tire, high pressure. Haven't been caught in the rain. Speed increase by 5-10 K's for me.
I had originally thought that I would only use these tires for races and century rides but I have come to love them so much I am using them for daily training as well. Getting them on sale was an added gift but I would have bought them anyway after one ride I was hooked. Excellent cornering, very low rolling resistance an excellent tire in every way. I won't buy anything else ever again.
I've ridden these tires before, and I always seem to come back to them. They have great grip, can be pumped to high pressures, which decreases rolling resistance, and they even seem to resist punctures better than most tires. Oh, and the ride quality and road feel are great too.
I have been running high TPI thread count tires thinking I was getting a near tubular experience. Saw these and have heard rave reviews about them so had to try. Mount easier than other clinchers I have tried. Tread profile appears taller with more tread, but may be my perception. Ride is equal to my prior tires if not better and they were on sale. I bought a pair and wish I had bought a dozen.
