Exactly what I need it to be
Very heavy duty.
Excellent tread pattern, glides through loose soil/gravel without drama.
Handle well, go ahead and lean into those tight turns.
Can be run at fairly low pressures (I've been running 35f/40r with no problems).
Very tight bead fit on Stan's XTR Grail tubeless rims, broke two plastic levers dismounting them.
Not as supple as lightweight casing tires, but that isn't what they are all about now, is it?
I have 8 bikes, just about every genre you can imagine. I bought these to put on a new build I was pulling together. The bike is a Surly "Strangler" that I intend to be my main urban and training bike. I ride all over Dallas, TX, on streets, bike paths, trails and gravel roads. These tires were the only option for this bike because I need rubber that I can forget about so I don't have to worry about what I run over or what surface is presented. I ride a lot at night in winter and I have had it with having to stop and repair flats in the dark. I expect I'll be fine this winter, so far very happy with my purchase.
Pretty darn nice.
These are about as nice of a touring/trekking/commuting tire that you can get. I've only ridden these for a couple of months so far, but I'd put two years of all season commuting on my previous set of 28cm Marathons and had never gotten a flat. The only reason I replaced them was to go to a wider tire. These also do quite well in fluffy snow and gravel.
The reflective sidewalls are great, and the tires just look cool, plain and simple.
Heavy, pretty pricey.
