I bought these tires to I replace my Schwalbe Zx Ultremos, I was skeptical being a Schwalbe loyal customer but decided to give these Mavic tires a chance. So far I've ridden over 500 miles and no problems what so ever. I passed on the savings to my peps in the peloton and they are also extremely satisfied.
With the Schwalbe's flats were a dime a dozen but I can honestly say that I am static that these tires are performing as well as they are. A few "minor" cuts but no flats, LOVING IT!
By the way, the powerlinks are recommended for the rear wheel and the Griplinks are for the front. I got them in the recommended set up and so far, I am very impressed.
I would recommend these 100%, and who can turn away from the great deal offered at REALCYCLIST.
Thanks REALCYCLIST for a great product and the lightning fast shipping....
