I have only had this tire a short time, but it has been very good so far. Rides and handles well on both pavement and dirt.

i like these tires a lot. they seem to roll easily and i think the handling and slow speed cornering around town are very good.

Initial Touring Tire

Switched out my mountain bike tires for the Schwalbe Marathon HS420. Being a newbie, the tire felt tight to put back on the rim, a spoon fixed this. After completing a cycle tour this past week, I feel comfortable saying these tires held up very well in extremely wet conditions. Traction was great even on slick asphalt and paint. They went effortlessly through gravel without wobbles. Deeper mud puddles may be a bit of a problem, but really should you be riding through it? During the whole week, I only had to pump them up one time, and that was only 5 psi. My kit weighed a lot and these tires certainly stood the test.

Interesting. I also bought a pair of these for a cross country trip on my Trek 520 in 2013. I wanted a durable tire that could handle occasional gravel roads and shoulders of cracked pavement. These fit the bill. No matter the road surface, wet or dry, I feel secure riding on these tires.

I bought two of these tires for my Trek 520 for a coast to coast tour in June of 2013. I had one flat on the rear, not the tires fault. A really sharp peace of glass worked itself into the tire. Over the 4200 mile trip the thread is only half worn and the tires really held up great. I am sold on these tires and will buy them again.
