Rated 5 out of 5 by AJB1 Good value for a very good tyre
I've ridden most of the spring/summer on these and can't really fault them (yet!). Good grip and they roll well, combined with a reasonable level of puncture protection for the weight and price. Will definitely buy another set.

Just got some more. Thought they were too cheap to be true, but proved me wrong.

Ótimo pneu, porém suscetível a furos. Estou comprando fitas de kevlar para poder andar sem furar os pneus, do contrário não dá pra andar direito.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Timtak Nice Coloured Interior
I have had them on my bike for a couple of years with no problems with punctures or grip -- not that I had no punctures or never slipped but I did not feel it to be the fault of the tire.
I am replacing them now because, while there is plenty of rubber left, the hard rubber is covered in a fine web of cracks and there are a few cuts to the red interior. Perhps harder rubber is more likely to crack in this way. I felt that these cracks would make the tire more likely to pick up glass, and having had a puncture recently (glass, first in ages) I decided to change.
I like the fact that the colour of the tire is the colour of the interior of the tire. This means that after having a puncture on the road, it is probably going to be easier to find whatever it was that caused the puncture compared to a tire with a black interior.
They were not particularly difficult to get on, though folded tires are generally a bit more difficult than the ones you get round at the shop.

Excellent value for a road tyre. Good so far, no punctures. Grip seems fine, not sure any 23 tyre would be great in the wet....

Порадовала отличная цена, а после и классный накат. Выбор цветовой гаммы дает возможность выделится из толпы. Про износостойкость пока сказать ничего не могу, прошел на них км 300 только

Rated 5 out of 5 by AceVentura Great tyre at a great price
2/3 the weight of Vittoria Zaffiros and much more of a lively, compliant feel to them. Wear has been good.
