What do you know about these tires? How do they compare pricewise to other tires? Are they durable? Problems?

They wear like iron, rarely flat, they have no appreciable runout, and they cost less than Sprinters or Corsas. They do ride a little rough, go on tight, and make a bit of noise. Of course, if you do flat, the sealant had better work (usually does), or the tire is scrap. You can not repair a tufo.

I've used their tubular and tubular clinchers mainly for racing with good success... wear has been acceptable. Overall performance has been acceptable. The tubular clincher is a novel and effective idea.

We abide.

Remain In Light.

I have been running their tubular version (Pro S33 and S3) for the last 8 months. Had one flat that almost instantly sealed itself and ride another 50 miles without a problem. Their tires are definitely noisier than most but wear extremely well. Easy to put on and with tires having max psi ratings from 175-220 psi, very low rolling resistance at the expense of comfort. Hope this helps.

These tires are interesting to me. I have to drive over 100 miles for a dealer, therefore information is key. Thanks for the info you provided. It definitely will come in handy.
