Mavic Yksion Elite Allroad Tires -- anyone use them?

Mavic's Ksyrium Allroad Pro wheels come with their Yksion Elite Allroad tires. In the past, Mavic's "included" tires have left a lot to be desired. Usually heavy, stiff, slippery, and prone to flats. To be honest, when I got these wheels, I assumed that these tires would be inferior without really giving them a try. I aired up the tires (without sealant) just to see how easily they would mount and how well they would hold air. (They did well.) Then, I took them off and put on a set of Gravel King SK's.

But those brand new Mavic tires sitting in the corner have me wondering . . . is anyone using the Yksion Elite Allroads as your daily tire? Are they a hidden gem? Have you used them long-term? What did you think? Are they a decent tire? Was I too hasty in casting them onto the pile of abandoned tires? (Or can I rest assured that judging them too soon was just in time?)
