suffered 3 flats in 4 months. In fairness, one of the flats would have taken down a jeep's tire just as easily...still, even 2 flats in 4 months is quite a bit more than i'm used to. On the plus side, grip was always excellent and wear rate was reasonable. I won't be purchasing these again.

Sticky! Too sticky.

Great traction and good puncture protection. Rolling resistance is very high, and under a 98kg load I got 700 miles out of a rear before it was squared too badly to continue. No flats, however, in that time.

Excellent traction in the wet, confidence-inspiring if a bit slow, but wear was so rapid that I can't repeat this purchase. Perhaps under a lighter rider they would fare better. Two stars off for being $0.08mile to ride.

Been riding on these for 4 months (late winter, early spring) in and around NYC's glass strewn roads. For a tire with this much flat protection, I couldn't ask for anything more.

These tires have a much better road feel than other high flat resistance tires I've used in the past. They are heavy, as to be expected from a flat resistant tire, but the grip feels good.

1st ride today. I have ridden Vredesteins for years. Great performance and the all weather tire is great as well.

I was surprised how supple and smooth they round.

This was unexpected for a tire that is made for extreme weather conditions.

Great purchase.

Let me start by saying that I have ridden Vredesteins for 15 years. I was introduced to them by the man who made my frame (Tom Kellogg), I have tried Contis,Michelins,Veloflex and Vittorias. None have been as reliable as the Vreds,so when they introduced a dedicated cold weather tire I had find out if it was the real deal. Let me say that I was extremely impressed in the fact that it felt like I still had my regular Sensos on that are nearly 50 grams lighter, the ride was comfortable as we ride on a lot of tar and chipped roads in eastern pa. The tires didn't feel sluggish like you get with a non racing tire, so bottom line is would definitely recommend this tire even as lighter touring tire for someone who is skeptical of riding a race tire because of their road feel. About me I'm 6'3 192 lbs, tire size is a 700x 25C 115psi rear 110 front Ti Bike.

I'm using these tires on a cross country ride, LA to Boston. 1,000mi and very little wear, Descended Mt. Mingus in AZ in cold rainy weather, great traction on switch backs.
