This tire is amazing, most confident inspiring, super fast on everything, hooks up in the corners, and yet brakes like it was made specifically for each one of those characteristics. Absolutely amazing! The center tread is a bunch of hexagons but they are at a slight angle, sorta like fish scales, fast rolling but the edges dig in and hook up when braking and cornering.
Following low traffic routes takes me on less well maintained pavement and dirt roads. These tires are good at any price and excellent when you consider their price. I would like to try a 42mm version of the folding Ultra Sport II though. That would be even faster and more supple.
I've tried a few different gravel tires and settled on these. The 40c gives a good ride wgood traction and durability and feels like it rolls faster than others. Im a larger rider and this tire gives a nice ride for me w47-50 psi.
