Never had a flat on the road. I have had one while parked at home, was it he cat not sure They are very hard to get on the first time but they stretch over time. Tire construction, uniformity, traction are all good on dry pavement. I cant speak for wet or damp road conditions. Wish I could find a 25c version of this tire
I got my tires in quickly after ordering. They were easy to install and the ride is smooth. After a couple a hundred miless they still have the bead in the center so I expect them to last a really long time. I will be back for other equipment from you as I need it.
I'm a casual cyclist who occasionally rides short distances. These tires were a replacement for the original tires, and the bike was purchased in 2012. Therefore, keep that in mind while reading my review. I've only put about 40 miles on these tires, but so far really like them. I like the tread design, and they are faster than my old tires. Also, they were easy to install. I usually ride on the shoulder of a main road, and occasionally encounter glass and other road debris. So far, I'm completely satisfied with this tire.
Bought a set of 30mm for my commuter bike. These tires give a lot of confidence with the ride and traction they provide. I got about 500 miles on them before I got my first flat - a large thorn punctured right through the middle band of the tire. I never experienced anything like that with my previous continental gp all seasons, so I'm faced with a trade off. I will continue to ride the Pro G until the next flat, then it's back to the Contis. Will see if I was just really unlucky or if the durability of these tires is overstated.
