Specialized's Roubaix Armadillo Elite provides a fast, comfortable ride with durability to last the long haul. It offers low-rolling resistance, solid grip in corners, awesome all-weather handling, and a higher volume for bump-smoothing compliance. You also get Specialized's Armadillo flat-prevention technology for peace of mind when you're churning out the miles.
These tires helped reduce the number of flats, had 4 in previous set of tires, only 1 with these. But after 8 months and 600 miles, the seams are splitting on both tires. I can see the kevlar. Definitely expected more life from them.
Bottom LineNo, I would not recommend this to a friend
I rode on these tires for the first time today and was pleasantly surprised. The bumps were less intrusive and the one thing that I noticed was that my hands didn't go to sleep. It was like riding in cadillac versus a volkswagon.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
