However, they are very prone on the back to cuts and tears. So much so that I lost the first one after 600k with a hole that had the tube popping out. The second one lasted about 2.5k but was pensioned due to a flat spot. The third one has less than 1000k on it and a few tears that have me a bit worried. Hmmmm.... I'm considering trying Schwalbe Ultremo DD's. Thoughts?
I'm a fan of the Ultremo's, but only have R.1s not DD's. One puncture in 1440km and that was a flint during a wet ride. Cut up a bit but not as bad as Michelin Optimum Pro, which I know you have had.
Ultremo's roll beautifully, light, smooth, just plain lovely
Longevity? Mostly use mine for racing but they seem to be as good puncture wise as my Rubino training tyres and better puncture wise than the Michelin Optimum's so rather than switching backwards and forwards I am thinking once all the training tyres are worn out I may just stick to Ultremo's but time will tell a tale.
But they are the nicest to ride on closely followed by the Schwalbe Durano S that came on the Cannondale.
