I'm not sure what the previous reviewer was doing -possibly super low pressure, given that many pinch flats, but I've had nothing but positive experience with these tires. The only struggle I had was actually mounting the tire initially, it was one of those tire/rim combinations that just didn't agree. Lots of miles, few flats, and smooth. If I'm nitpicking, I would probably lean towards the Fyxation Session 700 tires because they roll a little faster and the tread is a little more substantial, but I'd be perfectly happy with either one.
too many flats
In 20 miles had four rim-pinch type punctures total front and back. At first I blamed it on riding over a few yards of 1 inch road gravel on a hard dirt road with fresh loose gravel. The next two occured on regular suburban roads, with one occuring when climbing a curb-rode home another mile or 2, found the tire flat next day. I'll accept that one was my fault. Positively the most flat prone tires I have owned-the beat up heavy tread skinwall Continentals I used before these on the same bike had no more than one flat a year on the same courses.
The tread design has very thin rubber in the bottom of the rain grooves on the road face, so I expect thorn and glass punctures too. The slick face offers poor traction on grass, etc.
Bought these because of their claim of triple shielding. They are beautifully made.
