Strength:

Seems to last forever, grips very well the pavement, very low rolling resistance, kevlar beading.

Weakness:

being a 26x1.0 tire and runing at 125psi, the user can feel just almost every feature of the asfalt, so expect a little bit of a shaky ride.

A great tyre at a reasonable price. just remember to use it with high pressures (over 100psi) to avoid snake bites.

Strength:

They are thick and can run high pressures

Weakness:

They are very heavy and since mine are 26c they are very tall too

These are road bike tires, bit they are tough so i guess you could use them offroad... we did the tunis roubix and i had no problems going through the tough sections. They run up to 125psi which makes them run smoothly for such a huge heavy tire. They are very tall and rub my breaks sometimes if crap gets under there. I would buy them again if i could find them/ they came in a smaller size

Strength:

Starting out with my first real 'road' bike and these tyres came standard on in...2008 OCR3

Weakness:

None found as yet..but will say I prefer to run now at about 105psi

I'm 106kg, bout 181cm tall and mid 40's on my first new road bike. New to this style of riding. Had a hybrid for 10 yrs, moved up now. Using the bike about 3-4 times a week for about 50-70km total(light user).
I use a small compressor on adaptors on the valves to get 105-110psi in them and I like that pressure..smooth for me and doesnt feel like the brakes are on. Yes I feel some bumps, but it IS a bicycle you know! Using the bike to try an alternative to other sport now..gettin older ya know!
Thats my thoughts folks.
