Specialized's Espoir Sport Tire is great for high-mileage training rides. The fast-rolling center section gives way to grippy edges that provide excellent cornering traction. And, this great tire features Specialized's BlackBelt technology for top-notch flat prevention.
I have used a set of these as training tires for over 3000 grueling miles on less than perfect roads and have only encountered 2 flats along the way. These give me the feel my race tires deliver for a lot less. They are the perfect training tires. Just about 900 of these miles were laid down in the trainer. These tires have stood the test of time with less whare than you would expect.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
