Anyone using these babies? Any user feedback?

I can get them very cheaply here from where I'm from. The lack of reviews and use online is sorta disconcerting.

I've been running them a number of months now on my crit/road race bike.

I've found them to be great, maybe put 5,000km + on them, no punctures to report, grip well in the dry, and as good as any other top end tyre in the wet.

I've previsouly ran GP4K and Vittoria Corsa G+ and don't really notice much difference. (although the Corsa G cut up very quickly)

Thank you so much.

How do they measure though? What's a 25mm's actual width? I know their padrones usually come out smaller than spec-ed.

A little update.

I got those and installed them on my LB 56mm wheelset. Balloons up to 29mm effective width.

They are pretty confident to ride on in terms of grip. They aren't as "low" resistance as the GP counterparts but I can live with them considering how cheap I got them for.

Let's see if they can serve as a decent GP4000 alternative
