The best all-around tire
I have ridden quite a few other tires, thinking I could find something better than these. There is nothing better. Durable, hold the road on the fastest descents and at speed; I NEVER worry about how my tires are doing. Iron Horse Road Race: there is so much to be aware of roaring down Molas pass; I'm not worried about my tires. I KNOW how they are doing. I put on 4-5000 training miles a year and these will last most of the season: 3000 miles is not unusual. Really. And they take the grief from the road. The KELVAR belt is amazing and the side walls chuck away most everything I don't see. I check my tires after each ride and pull out all the junk that gets stuck in them so it doesn't advance. This has to be one of the best all-around tires out there. No alligator skin; just great tires!!
