Excellent durability and puncture resistance
One of my favorite tires. I use this for winter training and urban gravel which tends to be a mix of pavement and dirt with a lot of glass and other debris. Riding steep gravel roads with these can be a little tricky due to the center bead, but the roll really fast on pavement. These tires last a long time and are more puncture resistant than other tires I've ridden. I was using these when the brand was Clement and these continue to be my go to tire now that Donnelly makes them.
