Rated 2 out of 5 by GasBro Fast acceleration but unreliable
Beeing a regular user of Ultremo tires, I decided to pay for those fast tires knowing that they
had less protection. Mounting them on my Shimano C24 wheels, I saw that they were a little loose, I could easily mount them by hand. After only 5 minutes on my initial ride with two brand new Michelin latex tubes, I had a huge blowout that completely destroyed the latex tube.
About one month later, same happened to the front tire even if I really took care to center it
carefully. I also has tear on the side of both tires that required tire patches.
Rear tire is already dead and front will follow it really soon.
They were fast on acceleration and helped on climbing, but I was kind of scared to go
Downhill with them. On long flat stretches, I don't think they were better than ZX.
Also, weight was more on the 180g than the 160g advertised.
Sorry ZLX, but you are not for me.
I will stick with ZX. Summer is too short to risk a fall at full speed.

Wow - what a difference these make.
Look fab - go fab - are fab!!!
Wrapped these around my new Campag Zondas and between them they have transformed my Trek Madone into an even better bike.
These tyres are simply fantastic - buy 'em for your bike

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Great race tyre
I wanted to buy some performance for my next race, wheeels were like £800 for 250g of weight loss.where as 2x these tyres and some light weight tubes saved me 180g for under £80. they grip well, roll fast no punctures yet however i have only done 180 miles on them and one race. You can feel an perfomance increase they accelelrate well and hodl spped, what mroe can you ask for. we will see if they can go 500+.
