Faster than the speed of sound!
With the Grand Prix Supersonic your contact with the road
can be tuned to minimum weight and minimum rolling
resistance. Together with a “Race 28 Supersonic” inner tube,
our quickest tyre & tube set weighs only 200 g! The slick
rolling area made out of a carbon black mixture looks cool
and is of course made using our BlackChili recipie. But be
cautious! The Grand Prix Supersonic is a very apt weapon in
fighting for a personal best time, although for this extra speed,
the tyre does not feature any additional puncture protection
and has limited mileage use. With this in mind, the Grand Prix
Supersonic is not a tyre for training!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Fast But Don't last long!
This is a very fast and light weight tyre. I use them for time trailling. Luckly I've not yet had a puncher but am waiting for that day. They ride great and have loads of grip but they crack. My set are only a year old I run them at the recormened pressure and never leave them at a high pressure when not in use, but the tread section of both tyres is cracking and coming away. very dissapointing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Great tyre
I've used them on 5 hill climb trials and one criterium. Also did my warm-up rides on them. Very wary of puncturing - but no puncture (yet). In fact now I want to use them for road racing! You feel the lightness, they hiss beautifully at speed on the tarmac and give you very much of a tubular feel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Simply the best
I've been riding these on the track with Supersonic tubes and they are simply the best and lightest combo around. Highly recommend them. Don't use them on the raod though coz they wont last too long and I reckon they would puncture easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Great tires for velodrome.
I use these tires on my track bike on an indoor wooden velodrome (in Canada) and have for four years. Of course I've worn a couple out but have had zero issues with them otherwise. They're the lightest tire I can find.

I bought these tyres for optimum weight saving,I must say first time I stomped on the pedals,my bike literally come off the ground,it felt so light.Amazing performance in that department. BUT as the description says,punctures came on nearly every ride,not good.I wasnt using 140+psi,so that wouldnt have helped,so buy with this in mind. If you want reliability,try something a bit heavier.
