I have a Cannondale Synapse around twelve years old with 25G22/ 700x25C Bontrager nylon hard case tires. I now have over 1200 miles on these tires with never a flat. I will be replacing with a set of 700x28C's shortly. Wouldn't use anything but Bontrager!

Almost 1000 miles and no flats!
These came on my new SL7 and the first day of having my new bike, I had to drive through an automobile accident scene and there was glass everywhere! I stopped after I drove through and there were two large glass chunks in both tires. I was very worried but after pulling them out they seemed to have stopped it from popping my tubes! Now, almost 1000 miles and they're still perfect! So, I decided to keep with the stock R2 and ordered a few more! Thank Bontrager!

A Lighter & Faster
%20 speed increase switching from Bontrager R1 Hard-Case Lite. Later on I got caught into rain for solid 1 hour, tires had really good grips, kept my phase 17 mhp no problems.
