I notice these are popular in the states- anyone here use them?
Can you actually buy them here?
I wonder how they compare to the Schwalbe Durano Plus or Continental Gatorskin…
The Specialized marketing say they are better to other kevlar tyres on the market.
They are good but really dead feeling and available from Total Rush.
Do you mean a similar feeling to the way those Schwalbe tyres with that blue insert feel?
I was going to post this in your ‘tight tyres’ thread but for some reason didn’t. I’ve found the specialized tyres to be really loose, so probably a good option for your fulcrum rims.
I used fatboy armadillos on my MTB… they were fine.
are you kidding? when i tried putting on some armadillos it took two of us and like half an hour of fucking around. In the end i had two very sore thumbs… only to find out that the tube had sat in the rim properly (after it exploded)… so i had to repeat the process.
Armadillo’s are good, however as mentioned before, doesn’t provide the best riding experience.
