Awesome trainer that smooths out the roughest gravel hard pack and rolls well on asphalt and chipseal roads. GREAT grip on loose surface stone with hard pack gravel beneath and on road surfaces both wet or dry. Measures nearly up to 48mm at maximum rated pressure on Velocity Quill rims which have a 21mm internal dimension. Urban road debris is no problem for this tire. The protection this tire offers in addition to the tubeless ability results in making flats just not a concern. Long wearing 800 ish miles and just now wearing little tabs off rear tire. While not sold as let it be noted this is NOT an ice, snow, mud, race day or supple tire. However, a set of these tires WILL will keep you rolling and convertibility get you to your destination without fuss or loads of $$$.
