Has anybody tried the new Schwalbe Kojak in 20 inch yet?

I have the 20" Kojaks on my HPV Scorpion and I really like them so far. I am going to be taking a trip with them in another week and will see how they hold up.
how do you think they roll (fast or slow)?. do they grip in corners a bit? how are they durability wise?

The Kojaks grip the corners very well and "feel" better than the Contis which I imagine has something to do with tire width and pressure. I only have a couple hundred miles on the Kojaks so I cannot give a good assesment on their durability, but I have hit a couple potholes and glass puddles without incidence.

I have the 406 Kojaks on my Taifun. No complaints so far. They roll well, are comfortable and seem to grip well. I haven't been unsatisfied with any Schwalbe tires I've used to date.

TW - did you replace the Marathon Racers with either Conti's or Kojak's, and if so, how did they compare to the Racers? I have about 1700 miles on my Racers, with at least that much left on them, or so it seems.

My Scorpion came with Marathon Slicks and I loved those tires. I had Contis before I bought the Kojacks and they were a really great tire. I wanted a wider tires for touring and the 1.35 Kojacks are almost as fast as the Contis. I just returned from a couple hundred mile trip today with the Kojacks and they performed without incidence. The trip was pretty much dry pavement; managed to miss the rain and only rode a few miles on gravel.
