Has anyone used both of these tires? Would you please give me your opinions if you have.

Got both, use both.

Carbons wear well, roll OK and are fine for either racing or trianing. Not 100% happy cornering hard in the wet, they dont feel as grippy as the RACE which is probably due to the harder compound. Value wise they are excellent, last well and provide great performance against their weight. 230g I think. Reports of up to 8000 kms before they die. Mine have 5000kms and look fine.

The race are softer, grip more and wear a lot quicker. A bit lighter 210g I think. Only use these to race on as there is little point wearing them out just to clock up the kms. Better colours mind.

Your money, your choice.
