I'm with Hayden. I'd run over my mother for one of these. Despite the fact that these are "Lance Inspired" they're nowhere near as douchey as that tagline would suggest. Tasty, easy to unwrap and eat on a ride, deals with abuse nicely (broken pieces don't turn into dust).
Wow. Just wow. After having a blowout at high speed on my Vittorias (and the long healing process), I was pretty hesitant to go high speed downhill. Thankfully, after repairing, replacing, and refitting from the wreck, I went with these tires. That may have been the best decision I could have made. While the first downhill trip after the wreck was a little restrained, after leaning into these, I felt much more confident about flying again.
Superior grip, great tracking on the front tire. Noticeable uptick in speed, as well.
Pricey, but well worth the extra frogskins.
I had my doubts - mainly about the look of these things, but from the other side of the lenses, they're pretty terrific glasses. Lenses swap out easily in seconds, wraparound is comfy and nonobtrusive, glasses weigh nothing. Best of all, the field of view is completely unobstructed by a frame. As other reviewers have noted, this saves your neck from some long-ride pain. I may look like a douche in these, but they work fantastically well. Glad I got 'em.
They generally do what they're supposed to do, but I think something is amiss with the chamois. After long mileage, I've had the center panel wad up and cause some serious discomfort. I've only had this happen once, but once may be enough. Perhaps this is just an issue with a short run of these.
The funny thing is, I have a pair of these from a year earlier, and they're fantastic. Chamois stays flat, and no hotspots.
