Strength:

Good early in their life. Seemed to roll very well.

Weakness:

Bad later in their life

Got a set of these on my new bike and rode them without issue until I hit about 700 miles. From that point on I was fixing flats...front and back....on a very regular basis.
Chucked them at 825 miles after yet another flat and seeing threads poking through the rubber.
Continental has a pretty good reputation for the most part so I was very surprised at how badly these tire wore. Replaced with some Vittorias and won't look back.

Strength:

These tires just take a beating and keep on rolling.

Weakness:

None that I have seen yet

I got into road cycling during my first 3 day 250+ mile ride last year and bought these tires in blue to match my older bike last year. I rode over 500 miles and no flats or issues. I got a white set this year and put well over 700 miles again no flats. The roads were less than perfect and some riddled with holes and bumps and still these tires rolled on. I would highly recommend these tires.
