I live and ride in a very hilly area, meaning I'm heavy on the back wheel when climbing and heavy on the front, when bombing down at over 40mph. This is my second set and the rare times they do slide they are stable and predictable. I wouldn't call them super long life, but I can imagine on the flats they would be a great long term tire.
It's still new for me, but so far it's been great. It was easier to install than I imagined given that this is a folding bead. I can feel the difference when I ride compared to my previous tire -- it is certainly smoother.
these are the best inexpensive tires i have used. great looking tire with great grip. my only complaint is they lack some of the liveliness that a more expensive tire would give, but expected that. were tight getting on the rim had to use tire tool. overall great training, touring tire.
About 150 miles on these. No issues. Looks really great. The colored sidewall is far enough from the tread that it doesn't get dirty. Light enough. Zero complaints. Great band for buck.
