Anyone used these? I've been using Kaliente tires and they've been bomb proof at around 200-209g per tire (700 x 23). I recently picked up a pair of Valkyrie tires using amazon points - 700 x 25 and they both came in at 192g. I'm waiting for my current set of kaliente tires to die before mounting them.

I would love feedback on these as I am planning on picking up a pair.

I finally started using these. Of course, I have nothing to compare them to as I was using kenda kaliente 23's on a different wheelset. They do ride nicely and, for the crappy roads I'm on, they held up well over the last 2 days. July is my biggest riding month, so they'll see plenty of action over the next few weeks.

Over 1000 miles so far and they're holding up as well as the kaliente tires. A few little nicks in the tires, but nothing out of the ordinary. They ride nicely and dropping the weight while going from 23 to 25 mm has been nice as well.

Still going strong. These seem to be the real deal. I've ridden over/through more gravel, glass and horrible pavement (and some dirt) throughout July (where I logged over 1400 miles) and they're still in good shape.

I know everyone seems to have a hard-on for the new pirelli tires, but I'm still going on my valkyrie tires - no flats, only minor nicks on the rubber from the crappy roads I'm on and about 2400 miles in. I just bought more.
