Bontrager's AW1 Hard-Case Lite Tire is a great choice for riders who value low weight and quality road feel, but want a single tire for year-round riding. Its sub-tread puncture barrier keeps you rolling so you can concentrate on putting in the miles. And, the Hard-Case Lite's high-mileage tread compound provides optimal traction, low-rolling resistance, and great durability no matter what the weather, so this tire is perfect for training or commuting.
I purchased my new Trek FX S 4 in September and rode 3,000 miles with the original AW1 Hard-Case Lite Tires without any issues at all. I replaced them about 1,000 miles ago (I'm on my second set) because there were small cuts in the tread rubber but no flats. They roll smoothly and effortlessly, and I've had great confidence in them ... my average rides are 65-75 miles on concrete and asphalt. Today I received a set that I'll keep on hand.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
