When I bought my bike these tires were already installed. They had several thousand miles on them already, to the point of them needing to be replaced very soon. They performed great on the downtown streets and like a dream on the canyon roads. These tires were amazing even with a high number of miles. I wanted to see how they performed brand new, and they did not disappoint. They look good, have excellent grip at full lean, and last for many many miles. I will continue to buy these tires for my bike!
