I've been riding progressively longer distances on my M3L, and am wondering if a set of the folding Kojaks would be an appreciable improvement over the stock yellow labels I'm running.
Calhoun recommends the Kojaks for extended rides. Of course, Calhoun also stocks these tires, and thus has an interest in selling them. Not a dis on Calhoun, mind--just noting they're not an unbiased observer.
Anyone have personal, Brompton-centric experience with the 349 Kojaks? If so, what are your impressions?

Thanks for posting the link. I am a big fan of the Kojaks as found on my Dahon MU SL.
I have placed my B-spoke order for a Brompton S2L-X fitted with Schwalbe Stelvio tyres but would like to give the Kojaks a try.
The Kojaks are great tires ... if foldable ( kevlar bead) versus non foldable ( wire bead) makes a difference in speed ... I might think that the theoretical difference doesnt jive with the much more dollars the kevlar version costs.... ( Of course there is NOTHING better than a foldable tire to take with you as a spare on tour !!!)
And you save like 50 grams per tire, which is not bad thing either http://www.thorusa.com/dahon/accesso...es.htm#stelvio
