Daily commuter in the rainy & gritty Pacific Northwest, and every time it's time for new tires, I go looking for a set that's going to be better than the last. These are the best I've found in 18 years of searching.
Great grip, even cornering fast on freshly rain-soaked streets, I'm more nervous than they are. They feel speedy, if that means anything, and the 28s certainly cushion some blows.
I ride through some industrial zones with bumpy RR-track crossings where the shoulders are usually littered with truck-bed debris screws, staples, scrap metal, etc. Flatted out plenty of times over the years, but so far with 1,000 miles or so on these, no flats at all. knocking on wood here.
Maybe not the lightest, but pretty darn light for the protection they offer. I much prefer these to the gatorskins, armadillo elites, & endurance tires I've used before.
Have used these tires for a bit over two years now, and find them satisfactory for most conditions. I run them at close to 80psi most of the time, and down to 60psi on rough trails. Not a pure mountain bike tire by any means, but can take on most gravel, dry dirt, grass and small rocks with ease. Gets a bit squirrelly in wet conditions and larger rock. Runs very smoothly on dry roads. I am very confident on these tires as the tread and construction appear very solid and puncture resistant. Only reason I would change tires would be to go more aggressive for off-road wet and large rock conditions.
