I moved from 23mm to these in a 25mm. Like the ride and handling in dry, wet, and loose debris.
Had a puncture flat from small rock on paved roadway. The other 2 flats are likely related to the high pressure (150 lbs) these tires need to ride well. One was on the rim side and a valve seperated from a tube.
I find they are quick, durable and worked great last March in a tough 82 mile ride over rough roads that include several gravel sections. No flats and still going strong!
Converted my MTB to road bike. They made a big difference and the ride is more comfortable and less stressful. At this point I have nothing negative to say about these tires.
Hi, this is the second Vredestein tire. Each had a great feel and wonderful grip. The only lasted a summer. Tires did not last on a protected multi-use path, barely a thousand miles.
Being specific my rear tire wore way too quickly. Even after I checked religiously for proper inflation. Both after a summer were square and the treads were showing. Given my body frame and weight I was told to keep my tires at least 130 psi. Granted the second year I stopped and removed the worn tire before I had a flat. Learned my lesson.
The price at Western Bike Works was great but Ugh the tire wear is not worth the price even on sale. At this rate I would need three to four a year. Given my experience they should be great on slightly wet conditions racing I just would not use them to train.
