I ride these on dirt roads, gravel roads, caliche roads,even turn rows! Plus our famous loose chip seal West Texas farm roads. They hold up great. And they have a cool little steel belt radials sound to them.Love them! On my third set. Get some and quit worrying about your tires. Easy on and off if you go with the folding bead.
just put these tires on my new wheels, went to Cycle Oregon, 35,000 feet of climbing over 500 miles in 7 days.
Got two flats!
Wife had same wheels, with no flats.
Last year we used the non-folding Gatorskins...I think those are more flat resistant.
