Pretty well, believe it or not, if you keep the pressure high enough. You still hear the buzz from riding on bare pavement; perhaps one day it won't bother me.

Obviously it's not going to roll as well as your regular road/touring tires, but better than knobbies. I'd say on average it's 2-3 km/h slower, which, all things considered, isn't too bad.
