    Yeah they are good

    P-zero is a great road tire with tubes, and the cinturato measures bigger than advertised, seems super durable, and sets up tubeless really well.

    I think they are changing up the naming scheme this summer, but so far I’ve had great luck. Probably have 150 sets out on the road with little complaint

    Yes. The "4S" tires are really excellent in wet weather too. my new rain tire of choice.

    2 of our girls were given the 28mm TLR P Zero Race to test. Both removed them after the first wet ride, saying they were way too slick.

    I liked the old Specialized S-Works Turbo tires - the one that came in black-wall with totally slick tread, no dots or lines of raised tread. Must have been at least two generations ago, but I put on the last set I had stashed away earlier in the year. I was just kind of punting around for what would possibly be next and saw that Pirelli still offered tubed tires.

    Did they crashed on them or locked the wheel while braking ?

    One girl low sided after the rear end went out in a turn. The other girl kept it up, but same sort of deal - lost traction in turns. Both are experienced riders/ racers and were on familiar roads in familiar conditions.
