Strength:

Nice Racing tires
Super lightwight
Excilent Traction for hard or soft dry.

Weakness:

Wears out in 2-3 races
(the rear is even worse). (team control sl s-works)

This is a race only tire. Not for the hardpack rides. It will wear and split on you in just a month at a hundred miles a week. Stay away if you don't want to put a lot of money into tires.

Similar Products Used: Conti is nice.
Tiogas are really good to.

Strength:

Very light and fast

Weakness:

Wear out fast

These tyres are very good in lots of conditions and roll very fast in the dry. They make your bike feel well light when you fit them and look cool.
The only problem is they ware out well fast. Not the tread being worn down but the nobbles being ripped off.
In only four dry rides the tyres look very old.
Still very good while they are new, Racing or fave rides only.

Only just put them on.
I bought them for use as a racing tire/ hard training tire only.
THey went on easy and they look awesome.
AND THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS THAT THEY MAKE MY BIKE FEEL SO SO MUCH LIGHTER.

ILL POST AGAIN AFTER MY RIDE TODAY!

Strength:

Great looks, ease of mounting, tremendous grip in most conditions, low rolling resistence

Weakness:

price, others stated durability

Initial impression, impressive tire. Great feel, very predictable, looking foreward to putting the miles on them to see the wear rate. Expensive, but my ride is now a sub 24 lb rocket. It continues to make my 40 year old clydsdale ass, put a wooping on the twenty-thirtysomethings that I ride with. You can spend just as much money on a 650gr tire, and get LESS performance. way to go Specialized

Jay   Cross Country Rider [May 17, 2002]
Strength:

Rear tire only - Great grip, weight low enough to make a difference, impressive performance. Best rear I've used.

Weakness:

Wear, of course. Race only unless you put the above strengths over value.

The tradeoff: performance vs. value .Great tire for a short time. If you purchase knowing you will shred this tire soon its worth it.
