                  They are OK, but spend a little more. Compared to the Armadillo's I have on my other bike these puncture often.

                  • Training

                  Comments about Continental Ultra Sport Road Tire:

                  These came on my Motobecane Record. I've put about 500 miles on them, to include one century ride. Most of the riding has been on pretty good roads. Early on I kept the pressure at about 85, but more recently ramped it up to about 105. Zero flats so far. Not a fast tire, but other than that nothing to complain about. For the money it is fine.

                  Comments about Continental Ultra Sport Road Tire:

                  I use the tire for all training rides. I have a different set of tires and wheels for racing. I have raced with these tires before, they worked fine, but they are a lot heavier than any racing tire. Casual and training ride tire yes, racing tire no

                      Bad cores. I don't think I have ever had a blowout on a bike but I haze with these. The core separates and that is it. I have gone through two and my wife one. Don't waist your money. I do have a Dura Skin that has outlasted two of these so it is not Conti just these tires.
