I picked up a pair for late season, winter, early season riding. Previously I rode Continental Gatorskins 700x25. Not sure if its the tire or the 700x28 size or both, but these are way more plush and noticeably more comfortable. I have about 500 miles on them, smooth pavement, rough pavement, hardback dirt roads with no noticeable wear and zero flats. Looking forward to trying some Corsa Gs when things warm up again. Im a fan.
