        This tire flats with great regularity. I averaged one flat every 150 miles for 1200 miles. I bought Armadillos and hope to never see a Continental Borough again.

        Not great at anything, but versatile.

        Comments:

        I have 1800 miles on the first set of these on my Crosstrail. Were mostly used on pavement but did some single track and unpaved road riding. They were prone to slow penetration by bits of glass and shell. Had 3 flats on rear only and picked out many objects that would have caused additional flats on both front and rear. Front never flatted. I might go with something more aggresive for rear and will ride the old ones on the front for another 500 miles each. Low rolling resistance made it possible to keep up with road bikes inflated to 85 psi, but casing seems to be stretching out some at high end of rated pressure.
