All the reviews of this tire were very positive so I bought a pair. Mounting the tires on my Roval carbon rims was a beast. I had to use my plastic levers, two of which snapped during the process. I finally got the tire on the rim after using a zip tie to secure one end while I worked on the other end with a lever. Other than that, I’m looking forward to many puncture-free miles.
Just had my first ride on these tires. Was running 25c and 23c before that. The ride is definitely smoother but also the handling is not as crisp. We just had 2 days of rain and the 28s handled the debris quite nicely. Just barely fit my 2009 Trek Madone, but I think I am going to like them this Winter. They do feel a little slower too. Probably won't do as well on a 100KM ride. Will put the 25s back on in the Spring.
