Pretty good for the priceI bought these as a replacement for the knobbys that came with the bike that I wore out. They are 1.75 vs the 1.95s that came with the bike but that is fine with me since I only use my MTB on pavement anyways.
Thus far I am pleased with them. I put 16 miles a day on my bike and I have noticed a great reduction in rolling resistance. I don't really go any faster than I did before but I do so for greater distances and put much less effort going up hills or against the wind. Cornering is much more positive and direct as well. I have had one blowout however. I'm not sure what I hit but it left a 3/8ths of an inch hole in the tire. I repaired the tube and probably should replace the tire but the tire seems to be holding up. I run heavy duty tubes and the tire slime we use for golf carts and ATVs at work so small punctures are no big thing. As such I have no idea as to how well the Kevlar belt holds up but even so having a belt can only help.
