I commute 150+ miles a week and have been using these tires for a few months - a few months too long. Although these tires are relatively soft and light providing a good feel and roll on the road, they also have a built in tractor beam for debris. The soft tread picks up sharp objects which then progress through the tire during use. The lack of casing to the tire provides little resistance to punctures. What started as a small cut from a chard of glass, ended up as a gaping hole that allowed the tube to bubble out and deflate instantly. Averaging 1-2 punctures a week is not acceptable, so it's in the recycling bin for these.

If your a weekend warrior and want a good feeling cheap tire - these are a good choice. If you on the road a lot and want a reliable tire - I do not recommend these tires.

I've had good luck with Continental Gatorskins and Grand Prix tires (high end), but I decided to save some money on my last tire purchase, so I went with the Ultra Sports. I haven't had an unusual number of flats, but I don't think they grip very well. On my last ride, I had to cover about 100 yards on gravel, and when I returned to the concrete surface, I wiped out when I stood on a short incline, and my rear tire spun out. Luckily, I was not on a fast descent, banking into a steep corner. Admittedly, these tires had two seasons of wear on them, so I might have been pushing them beyond their expected wear. They probably picked up some dust from the gravel, too. Regardless, I can't remember ever having that happen to me before on a road bike. I swapped them out for a new pair of Grand Prixs that afternoon. I don't mind compromising comfort or convenience when I buy an economy product, but I don't want to risk my safety.

Just got back into cycling after several surgeries and wasn't sure if or how much I would be riding. My past has been racing. So I have always bought the very high end Continental, Michelin or Vittoria tires. Not wanting to spend a lot I opted for the conti ultra sport tire. Which is somewhere in the middle when it comes to weight, thread count and tire pressure and price. Tires went on fairly easy for a wire beaded tire. I was able to roll them onto a medium aero rim. They roll really well. Have good grip. Even when wet. Since I'm not racing I'm not pushing these to the limit when it's wet out but perform well compared to all the other tires I've ridden. There were no surprises when going around a wet corner. Where some tires will feel stable and then suddenly loose their grip. This tire gives good feedback. The 1st pair I bought in the spring of 2012 I ran for 2200 miles before I started to see the cords. The 2nd set about the same. One negative is like others have said are flats. I have noticed that I get far more flats with these than with most higher priced tires that incorporate a kevlar belt on top of the tire casing. Of course that adds to the price of the tire. So I can't complain but if your not wanting to deal with a higher number of flats then your going to have to spend a little more. My 1st season back on the bike I road 6000 miles. Approx 5000 miles on 2 pairs of the ultra sports. For the money these are a good buy.If you want more your going to have to spend more. This would be a five star tire if it wasn't for the higher number of flats.

These are just terrible tires and flat more than any other tire I've ever used. I got a pair on a new bike and they are flatting like crazy (I use correct pressure, am not heavy, and ride on clean roads). They essentially have no puncture protection at all and I have zero confidence in them now. I'm replacing them with different tires. I'd never, ever consider using these in a race longer than 1 mile because the odds say I'll lose time fixing a flat.

"UltraSport tires make a stunning impact on every training ride "

Actually it's more like every second training ride, which is the frequency with which I've been flatting on these.

"UltraSport SafetySystem tire incorporates a reinforced tread for extra protection against punctures"

I don't believe it. I think these flat more than if you simply duct taped tubes to your rims and didn't use tires altogether.

I'd rather race on the incredibly heavy armadillos because at least I know I'd not lose time to a popped tire.

These tires came on my Fuji SL Comp. I put over 3000 miles on the set before having a flat on the rear. I would say that if you treat them like road bike tires not off road tires, they will last.

Disclosure: I'm about 165 lbs, and ride about 200 miles a month at an avg speed of about 18 mph.

These came on my Motobecane in Feb of '12. They are a heavy tire, but I put about 400 miles on them before switching to faster, lighter race tires. I road them on clean roads, only cement and chip seal, no hard breaking. Fortunately I had no flats. Seemed to have good traction (at least in dry weather...I rarely ride in rain), but not a very fast tire. No problems getting on and off my DA22 rims.

Update Dec '12: As the summer riding season ended I put these back on my bike to save my Krylions for next summer and races. I pumped them up to 110 PSI. On my first ride as I was finishing up about 60 miles I noticed a growing bulge on the back tire. It quickly got so big it was scraping the frame behind the brake every time it rotated. It held air and I got home, but the tire was shot. So one tire failed at about 600 miles, the vast majority of it on pretty clean, smooth roads. The other tire is now at about 800 miles and showing significant wear (crown is flattening, and small holes abound), so I added an old tire liner I had in an attempt to squeeze every bit of distance out of it I can. It is now dreadfully heavy (especially when trying to accelerate), but as a trainer that is fine with me.

So it is an inexpensive tire...and my view is that you get what you pay for. I won't buy again. There are better tires out there that will cost more up front but will cost less over the long run.
