I just went ahead and bought a couple of Kevlar Reinforced tires for my 26" MTB. They are said, according to the specification, to be "very rigid and efficient in preventing flats from happening in the first place". Does anyone know if there is a grain of truth in this, are such tires usually efficient in preventing flats? I use my MTB as a touring/road/commuter bike so any reduced probability of getting a flat is very nice
Or did I just throw $25 (the difference between standards and those) down the toilet?
