Rated 5 out of 5 by Oren Great road tire for touring or MTB
Used it for commuting on a 26" full sus bike. Ride quality and grip is way better than 25$-class tires, such as Conti xxx-Ride line or Schwalbe xxx-Cruiser line.
Just ordered another set for my new 29" rigid MTB.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ridgeback very good wear resistance
These tyres came standard on my Ridgback Flyte, still using the tyres at 3250 miles though the rear is looking worn. Very few punctures, about one every 1000 miles which considering the commute I ride and the amount of green glass I see is pretty good. Will definatly be replaceing like for like.
