Where are you getting that they are "thorn resistant"?arrowheadtroutm said:These look to have potential; found a pair at the LBS and decided to try them. Thorn resistant and under 500 grams for 1.90 size.
My apologies. From reading the sidewall I got the impression they were puncture resistant; must have misunderstood the tire description. Sorry for the confusion....I defer to shiggy.shiggy said:Where are you getting that they are "thorn resistant"?
The Aramid fibers in the tread rubber is for stability and wear. The Aramid folding beads are for weight reduction. Neither increases puncture resistance.
