Anyone using the Serfas Seca RS tires?(2 posts)

Anyone using the Serfas Seca RS tires?Matno

I posted this in components, but haven't had much of a response...

I'm curious as to how much they weigh, how they hold up, and how they grip.

One retailer told me 195g, but they're marketed as a durable, flat-resistant training tire, so that seems ridiculously light. None of Serfas' products seem to have made it into the review section here on RBR (which is weird considering how common they are and how long they've been around...) I emailed a suggestion to RBR already. At any rate, they look good, and I've heard good things about Serfas quality in their other products. If these tires are light and durable, they could be a great deal.

I used last year's model (just the Seca) for about 500 miles. I went through 2 on the rear. For a period of about 2 months I had 6 fl@ts, a couple due to user incompetence and impatience, lol. The others were due to a lot of glass where I had to ride to get to my usual route (road construction and weekend beer binges were the cause of the glass). I started using SuperGlue to patch the small cuts and that got very tiresome to do every week. So I decided to look for something else. I ended up buying Axial Carbons from Lickbike.com. At 450 miles, no problems so far. Great tires, great feel. The Seca's were reported as weighing 260 grams. The tread does wear somewhat quickly, though. As to their durability, I find them less than desirable. I use them now for trainer tires. Even though my experience is with last year's Seca, it may bear keeping in mind when/if you get the RS's. Hope that helps.
