Been only riding around a bit, but really liking the feeling. They seem to stick to the road like no other tyre I've used (mostly Contis :D). Will take them to the nastiest section of gravel I know, and see how low I can go with the pressure, before bottom-out.

Update: this is becoming my favourite tyre. Even though running on a heavy cheapo alu CX bike, with 36 spoke Open Pro wheels, it's the smoothest sensation ever. Perfect cruising.

Fed them some serious alpine gravel (and cow manure) including steeps over 20% up and down and a side of rocky sections. They handled it very well and were probably less scared than myself on the descents. Ran around 6 bar front / 7 rear, could run a bit less on the road, but was afraid to pinch flat on the occasionally up to basketball sized rocks. Of course they are limited by their width (the loop I did today is well used by MTBers), but no complaints.
