    First ride out on these yesterday, fitted to my Lapierre Zesty 514. Fantastic price and fast delivery from Superstar.

I set these up tubeless out of the box, very easy with a nobby Nic and a hans dampf, had both inflated with a track

    Had these a few months now, been putting them through their paces all round the lakes, up on the fells and round Whinlatter and Grizedale trail centres. I ride a pretty modified Camber that was feeling a little sluggish, popped these beauties on it and they've totally transformed the bike. With the reduced turning weight I rarely need to go down to granny gear now, and if I do it feels much easier
