- A fast and smooth-rolling tyre that offers good grip
- let down by questionable durability
Price as reviewed:
We struggled getting this classic-styled, gum-walled tyre onto the rim, but once on we found the herringbone tread really aided grip in all conditions.
When combined with a lightweight latex tube the tyres felt super-smooth and fast, giving a comfortable ride and feeling more like a tubular tyre.
While we didn’t experience any punctures, the sidewalls felt flimsy and got cut up easily, making us worry about the durability of these otherwise very good tyres.
