They were fine but is a headache put it on and off when you have a flat, you guys should make a version foldable to improve the quality of to this tires

Si, raccomando questo pneumatico

Hi Cristopher. Thank you for your review! Unfortunately non of the Protek tires are foldable. This is due to the extra 5 mm protection cap built into the tire to protect the tire against flats, punctures, etc.

Great grip, cannot puncture but heavy
29 ottobre 2020
After 5 years of use (avarage use, 90% asphalt, 10% dirt, always stored indoors) the front one is still at 100% usable but it might be time to change it in the following months. The rear was swooped after 3-4 years of use. Grip is just fine as long as you don't think you are Rossi. It never felt slippery. On rain or old super smooth asphalt at reasonable speeds, panic breaks or above its top rated speed (60km/h, I went 66km/h) followed by intence breaking, the front tire lost its grip only ONCE. Resently I was going 20 km/h on a sharp turn on a mountain road with VERY smooth asphalt and some and some pine needles, and I didn't even fall. It found its grip again very fast and I managed to stay up. Also, it was proven to be impossible for thorns to puncture it. Saved me a lot of money on tubes. But you pay for it in weight. About double the weight of a normal tire. A pair of these will add about 1Kg to your bike compared to regular tires (though you may not care about 1Kg). Also the gyroscopic forces are much higher. At speeds above about 50km/h it's weird when you try to turn the handlebars. Though, I don't know how often you will need to turn while going faster than 50km/h, I never have. TL;DR If you have problems with punctured tires, and you don't want to go crazy fast, this is a very good choice. But if don't care about an unbreakable tire, go with something else.
