As a commuter/light adventurer, these are by far my favorite tires I’ve had. Fast on pavement, forgiving on rough streets, and handle everything else I throw at them with aplomb—light gravel, slush, freezing rain, crunchy ice. Excellent all-arounders.
I’m about 100 miles in so not thoroughly sold. First, I did 50 mile group ride on tarmac. The 35 SSs felt pretty fast with my compadres riding skinnier tires.
Next was a 50 mile gravel race. I was not gliding on the gravel the same way my Maxxis Rambler 45s did, but they still felt robust on the gravel roads. This was on Central Texas Gravel roads, not single track to put things in perspective. Since the race was 50/50 gravel and tarmac, the other tarmac half went really smooth.
I’m really happy with these tires so far!
