This is a nice training tire. This is the first Schwalbe road tire that I have used, and I thought I would try it due to a great experience with their fat tire. The tire mounts up as I hoped with good fit and true spin. After a few rides, it looks like tire should last well. This is heavier than the usual race tire, but not too much, and after all, it is a training tire. The gray sidewall goes well with dark lettering carbon rims.
