Curious if anyone has used these tires? They're 700x45 slicks with the Gripton compound plus Armadillo flat protection.
A bit heavy at 640g, but nearly half the weight of 45mm Marathon Plus tires which are 1100g. Slightly heavier than my current 42mm Sawtooth tires which are about 615g each.
I'm mainly attracted by the sticky Gripton compound and the high level of puncture resistance. They would be tremendously lighter than Marathon Plus for touring.
