From 3x180tpi to 3x120tpi

Le Kig - October 14, 2021

I Liked that the previous version of the power road competition had: - high count of fine thread 3x180tpi, - narow aramid band - no compromise on the compound. the previous clinchers with light latex tubes has a close to tubular feel. On the new clincher version a lot has changed, and it feels like an actual downgrade from the new tubeless version. More durable compound, Wide aramid band, easy fitting aramid beads, side chevrons, and a lower tpi count. On the paper and comparing with the previous version box, This looks more like a cyclotourism version than an improvement of the old light and pure performance, minimum protection. 1- grip compound has changed without a lot of claims on a possible improvement, exept for durability (previous version claimed 10 watts savings) 2- aramid band is wider (not so interesting for performance, when there is a cut on the side you change it anyway) 3- thread count is 30%down from 180 to 120, goodbye time trail feeling, this is probably the most disappointing. Lets hope somehow it will retain the good feel of the previous performance formula.

Extremely poor longevity

French Bib in England - June 1, 2021

On the positive side, this tyre is super light and offers good grip. On the negative side it's the most fragile tyre I've ever seen. First I got a double puncture which was due to really bad luck: I rode straight into a road crack precisely the width of my tyre and it shred the sidewalls and tube of both front and rear tyres. Both tyres were less than a month old and had to be thrown away. None the less I got another set and got another puncture caused by a tiny shard of glass (3mm high, 1.5mm wide). Finally the nail in the coffin was 6 month later: the rubber was cracking all around the sidewalls of both tyres. My bike had been stored outside during the winter but was protected by a cover and in an area sheltered from the sun. I find all these issues unacceptable on such an expensive tyre.
