Strengths:    Cornering & the smooth ride, plus the kevlar belt really keeps the flats away.

Weaknesses:    None yet!

Bottom Line:   
These tires rock....they corner great and ride super smooth, even at max pressure. I almost thought I had a flat the first time I took these out. They are a soft compound tire and I'm sure they will wear fast, but thats the price of speed. They are expensive, but oh well.

Strengths:    Fast, corner well, durability

Weaknesses:    Price

Bottom Line:   
Tires feel fast and offer little rolling resistance. Although they are a bit wide for their size (I have 23mm and they look almost like a 25) they offer great cornering grip in criteriums and have supple enough sidewalls so allow for some smoothness even at 120psi. I'd get the 20mm if I just did time trials or road races.
