I'm interested in getting one of those as a rear tire and the comments I see range from "they fly" to "they're boat anchors". I think it's due to what each person has previously used. People who find them fast are coming from small block 8s and nanos (the latter being marketed as fast tires themselves btw).

Any comments on durability?

As I mentioned I am new to gravel riding so I donít really have direct experience yet on wider 700C tires but I have been riding my MTB on gravel with Michelin XC road tires which are essentially 35C slicks for 26Ē wheels and the Continental Contact city tires so that is my only point of reference.

As far as durability, I only have about 200 miles on my happy mediums so not much to go on. They seem ok for now.
