This tire is great. Goodyear went the extra distance to make it state of the art. The material is supple. It mounts very easily because it is supple. I use HED tubeless rims. Imagine my shock when it inflated on the first try without any sealant! Yes it inflated the first try without sealant. I was thinking of riding without any sealant and thought that would be foolish.
Four months later, I have not had one puncture or one flat. It hardly loses air. I inflate once every two weeks. I am riding this tire from New Jersey to NYC everyday, 24 miles a day.
It is a great great tire for commuting. I hope Goodyear stays committed to bicycle tires.
I was looking for a wet weathercommuter tire and figured Id give these a try. They mounted easily with fingers on a Reynolds ATR rim, and I even managed to get em to air up tubeless with just a floor pump. The ATRs run wide internally, 23mm, and the 30c Goodyear measures 31.5mm on this rim. So, yeah, they run a little narrow. After 1000 miles so far this winter, I have 0 flats, and the grip in the wet is really impressive, I dont have to change how I ride at all. Great tire
i am only a little over 100 miles into these tires. the tires before were the mavic allroad elite that came with my wheels. these tires mount to the mavic allroad elite disc wheels well and do not leak air. i had a small puncture on the front at 40 miles. the stans sealant took care of the leak. i would have rated the tire with 5 stars if it wasnt for this puncture. i didnt have a puncture with the mavics at all in 1000 miles on the same roads. these tires grip as well as anything i have ever ridden on high speed mountain descents.
Struggled to get this to see on a Reynolds tubeless rim (which works just fine with Hutchinson tires). When it lost air on a ride and I tried to drop a tube in it, the side wall failed catastrophically (2 inch tear).
