Hmm I am disapoint

The tires don't seem to be very fast and reports say they aren't very supple. They are quite light for "mainstream" tires but there doesn't seem to be a compelling reason to get them.

Corsa G+ is suppler than Pirelli but it pick up too much debris in wet road so it's not a great training tire in my area.
Michelin Power Competition Grip well, fast but it front and rear i tested both die with big cuts within one month in my area. If your area has better road i feel like this is one go to tire.
Schwalbe Pro One for some reason doesn't grip well in my test. I fall by slipping front wheel in wet corner once on it at slower speed than i currently ride through corner with the Pirelli Velo.
Continental GP4000sII durability is a strong point. Not as cut prone on the sidewall as Michelin. Relatively Harsh ride. Not as grippy as Pirelli. Excellent Aero shape when new but it square off noticably later on.

So Pirelli is one that just work. Best part is the grip. The rest are compromise. Survive my road. Suppler than Conti. I'll surely keep using it at least as a front tire. Rear can be Pirelli or Conti, i'm not sure yet.

TBH my Zipp Tangente Speed RT25 tubeless feel amazing at lower to medium pressures. They're manufactured by Hutchinson also, along with the new Mavic tubeless. My only complaint about Hutchinson manufactured tires in general is their tread longevity.
