quality training tire (25mm)
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
Ordered these around March when quarantine kicked off to keep as a spare set to account for how much my riding ramped up while working from home. I finally got around to mounting these on the daily wheelset a couple weeks ago. First things first, I have to say this is the easiest mounting tire I have used in quite a while. The tire is a little on the heavy side considering my normal tire choice is Conti or Vitroria but I was keen on trying something new. So far 100+ miles in and 3 rides down, the tire rides great. The first 5 miles on a foggy morning, these tires had sooo much grip, like pick up every piece of dirt and small rock from the ground grippy. I even happened to run over a small patch of glass as I wasn't paying attention to the road but no flat. Even ran a little bit of dirt on the first ride just for fun. So far there looks to be 0 wear to the tire, no small cuts or signs of damage from any of the junk I happened to run over. So far, I am extremely happy with these tires and looking forward to running them as the weekend mornings get more cold and dark.
