The Krylion Carbon is faster than any tyre tougher than it, and tougher than any tyre faster than it. The casing is nice and supple, despite bead-to-bead protection and a synthetic belt under the tread. This protection isn’t impregnable but it’s effective: we’ve picked up two punctures in well over 3000 miles on our current pair.
