Rated 3 out of 5 by doctorrick 1st puncture in a year after only 3 rides!
It may be unlucky so I will wait to see how these work out, but I had a puncture after just 3 rides after changing these - but it was a sharp stone which I had to remove. My previous tyres had done dozens of rides without puncture, so was a bit of a dissapointment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Johntheboy Good tyre at a good price
Bought these to replace the tyres that came with my Giant Defy2 which punctured when ever they looked at a bit of flint. Only done about 100k on these new ones but the signs are good ie no puncture's, they grip well and seem to be a lot quicker than the giants stock tyres. Picked red so they match the red and black of my Defy, look well smart! At £15 a pop these make a good training tyre. Have teamed these up with some Schwalbe tubes which are extra puncture resistant, so I'm hoping that this winter I can ride without stopping for too many blowouts!

Rated 4 out of 5 Not top of the range but good enough
It's clearly not a top of the line product but you get what you paid for.
I've rode one exactly like this one for around 1000 miles before I had to replace it.
I was mainly braking with my rear brakes and skidding everywhere so 1K miles is not bad at all.
... I now brake more balanced and maybe a bit more with my front brakes...

I use these on my 13 year old Trek 1400. No issues or punctures so far.
The bike looks good with red tyres.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DevotioN Луганки для Шоссе!
Покупал для своего шоссейника такие покрышки. Надо сказать, что накат в них просто изумительный! Вес покрышки мал и есть реальная защита от проколов! Катал по крупному и мелкому асфальту, грунту и слабой пересеченке. За 3 года езды небыло ни одного прокола! (Хотя стекол и колючек в городе с лихвой хватает). Порадовала индикация стертости покрышки. (после истирания верхнего слоя виднеется яркая желтая полоса)
Соблюдайте посадочную ширину покрышки на обод! Был нюанс, что покрышку разорвало давлением, но это было из за неправельных действий пользователя! Нельзя 23с покрышку садить на 25мм ширину обода!

I bought a set of these in May 2012. I've done approximately 3500kms on them so far and not one single puncture and some of the back country roads i ride on are quite rough. Very pleased with their grip too, I havent had any hairy moments in the rain or on frosty roads either. The rear tyre is now showing slight signs of wear, the centre of it is smooth/bald but i reckon there is another 1000kms in it yet. The front tyre looks like new so when the rear is done all i need to do is buy one as the front tyre has a few years wear remaining (at the current wear rate# I trust these tyres that for short training spins #25km loop) I dont even take a spare tube/pump with me anymore) Highly recommended!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Not to bad!!
Bought these for my racer (city rider) Over the first 6 weeks I got three punctures in the rear. That was some 12 weeks ago since then so far so good no further flats!! Just make sure tyre pressure are appropriate (probably my issue for the first 6 weeks)
