Well after 3 good long rides on these tires. I figured I would fill evereybody in on what I thought. The bike they are on is my 09 Tarmac SL Kysyrium wheels Stans 44mm valve stems.
Mounting- These tires was a breeze. I thought due to the shape and thickness
of bead that they would be tuff to mount. I was able inflate the tires without
having to use an air compressor. Starting pressure was 95psi in both tires.
2oz stans sealant each tire.
Ride quality- It didnt take more than a 100ft to notice how much more plush
they were compared to my tube tires (Grand Prix 4000s) at 95psi they
felt just as fast if not faster than my old tires at 115psi.
Riding over rough and cracked pavement was noticably smoother.
Cornering- I think the cornering ability of these tires is much better
I noticed I was taking corners 5+ mph faster than with my old tires.
The traction was amazing!
Descending- I felt due to the plushness of the tires that on high speed
descents 35-40mph I had much more control the bike also felt like it got
up to speed much faster! The traction when it came time to hit the brakes
Reliability- Due to the fact I only have about 120 miles on them I realy
cant comment. But I would have to imagine that they would would hold up alot
better than tube type tires!
I would highly recomend these tire to anyone thinking about go tubeless!
