Strengths:    very low rolling resistance (even on our tandem), durable, easy to mount, takes a high pressure (100 psi), bald/excellent traction

Weaknesses:    a tad expensive, hard to find

Bottom Line:   
We bought these tires to reduce rolling resistance/increase our speed on our tandem. Best/fastest tires we have used on that ride to date! Incredibly smooth and surprisingly easy in the rough road even at the high pressure. I kept looking and looking to find a tire that fits our 26" mtn. rims (Cannondale tandem). Hard to find! This tire is a true 1" bald. Contains the Armadillo strip so it seems really durable. Haven't had a single flat in close to 1K miles. Highly recomended. Would probably to very well as a commuter, too. Have used these tires in 2 day double century, lots of half-day rides, and with a loaded Bob on the back. We met another tandem couple who were rolling on some 1" Conti's years ago, but I could never find them locally.
