Road cycling is what I live for. I need to have confidence under my bike to ride my best. These tires give me the confidence I need to smoke the competition even if its just me going for the latest KOM. Sure footed, puncture resistant and well fitted tire that will give you many trouble free miles.
I commute to work everyday throughout the year. The last thing I want is to have to fix a flat on the road. These tires are extremely durable and resistant to punctures from glass and road hazards. Not a light tire, but they roll pretty well. When you catch them on sale, you can't beat the price.
It rides smooth on pavement and well on dirt. It takes considerably less effort to pedal compared to the flat surface road tires I had.
I bought a new Schlitter recumbent and on one of my first rides I encountered something I neve experienced in Maryland....sand spurs! Got two flats in one ride. A friend suggested Gatorskins and now I laugh at you nasty sand spurs.
