Strengths:    low rolling resistance, subtle and comfortable casing, grip(given its size and tread)

Weaknesses:    poor treadlife

Bottom Line:   
a superb race tyre especially suited to drive duties. great for its intended conditions and a lot grippier and comfortable than ectected due to the subtle casing.
sadly the tread is easy to tear and wear with a very short life so its almost a 'race only' tire. bead is also too weak to run tubeless but casing is so good its feels tubeless with a tube !
