I've put a few hundred miles on this tire (with Powerlink on back) and consider it to be one of the best deals I've received from RC. Installed as easily as any other tire on Fulcrum 7 wheel, has proven to be reliable in standard training-type riding on streets and paved trails. I live where I seldom face wet streets so I can't comment on wet grip. I got a great deal on Real Cyclist; glad I did because it got me out of inferior tires that were squared off after a few hundred miles. On sale? Get 'em.
