The tire is stout and thick. It looks inflated even with it is not. I have great confidence in it's puncture resistance. The high visibility paint on the sides make me more comfortable in the early mornings.
I'm a clydesdale rider coming in at 250 and they handle it well. I've done 100 miles of dirt trails and 250 miles on the roads so far and couldn't be happier.
Finally a tire with high visibility, real puncture protection, low rolling resistance and hybrid ability!
I picked up a set of these tires last week to replace my badly-worn tires, so as you could imagine, anything is a step up from that! But this tire handles well. I went with the 1.9 width and have both front and rear set 50psi. It handles very well on my 15 mile roundtrip commute and hasn't had a flat (yet). Trust me, they would've gone flat by now if it didn't have any sort of protection (been there, done that on the route I normally commute). The reflective stripe is great for commuting during darker hours, increasing your visibility to otherwise absent-mindedoblivious vehiclists.
The only downside is that they're definitely on the heavier side, but the slick profile provides for smooth rolling, and the fattiness of the tire provides for some shock absorption, which is very nice. Overall, I'm very satisfied with this tire.
