"If you ride bad roads or have lots of flats you'll want to have a look. These are like riding on bulletproof tires."TriRSquared

(4)

Ease of installation

They are a bit harder to get onto the rim than most tires but nothing too horrible.

(5)

Quality of Construction

I have ridden them for 4-5 years now (2 sets). I have never had a blow out in 4-5 years. One slow leak but I believe that was at the valve stem base.

(4)

Comfort

I feel no difference in comfort between these and my race tires.

(4)

Durability

They last a good 1-1.5 years (depending on your mileage of cours)

(4)

Value

They are not super cheap but they are well worth the piece of mind knowing you are less likely to get a flat.

(3)

Appearance

Nothing special to look at.

(3)

Performance

They are a bit heavier than light weight tires. But it's a trade off.

Strengths

Bulletproof. I have ridden some bad roads and have never gotten a puncture using these tires.

Weakness

A bit heavier than most tires.
