" I came from what i thought were a pair of good wheels onto these zondas and first time i turned onto a descent i reached for the brake as the acceleration was phenomenal.!
There is no flex in these wheels which may not be to everyone's taste and is taking a bit of getting used to but cornering speeds are truly improved as are descents. i am certain that hill climbs and flats will improve with the correct tyres too.
"
Pros: Great Value, Attractive, Rugged, High Quality, Lightweight, fast rolling !
Cons: none as of yet!

" Although this is a robust well built tyre with bags of grip it is a slow tyre in my opinion. cornering is great thanks to the grip but rolling resistance is high and makes it a slow tyre. "
Pros: Durable, Rugged, Lightweight, Versatile, Good Fit
Cons: Bulky, slow

Suitable for road tandem?

I have a light road tandem that needs new tyres. I have these on my regular road bike that I use daily and really like their durability. Most tandem tyres seem to be quite clunky, as they're designed for the extra weight. I was just wondering if these would actually be okay as we're quite a light tandem team (barely 120 kg), and the bike is so light too. Was planning on getting 25C.
Hi , i would say they would suit a tandem., the grip is excellent and with two people to power them the rolling resistance won't be an issue either.!
cheers
