Great Road Tires
I got these for a long road ride where I would be riding my Mt. Bike. These tires gripped well, had low rolling resistance, and even had good wet traction. They were very easy to install - no impossibly stiff bead here. Overall an excellent product, especially for the price.

PROS: price, Traction, Ease of installation

Great tire
I am using this on my recumbent bike for pavement riding. It is a good tire, and so far has held up well to my local conditions. I have been able to run higher pressures with it which is ideal for the 'bent.

PROS: wear well, Quiet, Nice price, Good Quality

CONS: A little Heavy

I've bought these puppies for years
I've bought these puppies for years as road tires for my 26er. It's fine. But I do use mine with a liner to prevent punctures. But if you can, see if your wheels can be converted to tubeless and move on to this new technology. It does require a new type of tire, maybe not these ones, but you'll appreciate the difference.

Ideal for commuting.
I put a set of the 26x1.4 inch on my commuter bike. I replaced a set of similarly light but more balloony 1.9 tires. The difference in acceleration is like night and day. These just zip. I like that the 1.4in width offers a little more surface area, but also supports the 80 PSI pressure I prefer for commuting. They handle fine on gravel too. The grooves are small, so they do not pick up stones. Great tires so far.

PROS: High pressure, Acceleration

Not what I expected
When I first got them I was disappointed how small the slick area was, it's only 7/16 of an inch between the side grooves which was much smaller than I expected based on picture. I didn't need them right away so 6 weeks later I go to replace my 1.5 slicks with them and they won't go on the rims. They're just so tight I can't get the last 8 inches on the rim and i've tried everything. I've had some hard to install tires before but never this tough. I gave up and will look for something else, not worth the hassle.

CONS: Small, Tiny Slick Area, Hard To Install

Frail, Dangerous
If you purchase this product you will regret it. If you ride on this tire you will really regret it!

CONS: Horrible Tire. Explodes when inflated to 30 psi, Punctures Easily
