 Quiet, fast, and looks cool. It's like the big fat ninja tire. I go from street to hard pack trail as part of my cummute without any issues. Don't take em on dirt/mud or you might find yourself on the wrong side of the trail.

 best dedicated street tire, beats k-rads, micro-knobbies, bontrager whatevers, hutchinson slicks, everything else out there.

For me, the biggest pro is the casing, it's so thick, tall and hard (that sounded dirty...) I've never had a flat on them

 I love this tire. As a fairly large rider, I love the fact these tires are as beefy as urban tires you can find. They have huge air volume, great width, and extremely low rolling resistance. The ultimate urban tire.

 These tires are great for street riding, and the sidewalls are super thick. I would recommend these for the skatepark or city riding, but not for anything else...
