Tried Really hard to like these
- Size Bought: 32’s
Came stock on a new bike. Rear tore within about 500 miles of mostly road riding. Figured it was just bad luck and I picked up some glass or something. Decided to buy two more. All was good until about 500 miles again then puncture. No biggie I thought, plugged it finished just ride. Got home it was basically another tear and was slow leaking still. Both of these tears were directly on the tread.
The ride very nice. Seemed okay but I cannot believe how fragile they are for a “gravel” tire. Prior to this I rode the past 2 years without a single full puncture. I just can’t say these are all that great. I know folks like then but from my experience there are much better products on the market.
**edit** went back and checked my mileage. Flats/tears occurred around 1500 miles. So I guess I
That’s much better than 500. But would still hope for a little more. I guess it just depends. If you don’t need something that will hold up for higher miles, then these are great. If you’re looking for a little more life, the man maybe not so much. Doesn’t change my rating. Still a “2 star” product to me.
I second this review.
