Because there seemed to be a large support for these both in my original post as well as a few others, and because the Forte Kevlars were on sale for $14.99/ea.on line(instead of $27.99), I went ahead and jumped on this deal.

Just got them - haven't had a real chance to work them out, but they seem quite supple, as good as Axial Pro's I've ridden on other's bikes.

One question: If the yellow shoulders are supposed to aid in cornering grip, shouldn't they move up more towards the center of the tire? As they are, you have to *really* lean to get this part to touch pavement.
