Anyone using the new Enve SES TL tires?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Anyone using the new Enve SES TL tires?

Anyone using the new Enve SES tires TL ? They are suppost to be directional but don't come with an arrow. I talked to Enve last week and was told the Manufacturer Tufo forgot to stamp the arrow on most of the tires. He told me one side has wider spacing between the thread pattern which would be the side going forward. To be honest the spacing between the patterns on both sides looks the same to me. Pretty pathetic.

I have a pair of these tires. I flipped a coin on tire direction.

How about this pix and use the pattern?



So it looks like this way (based on the pattern I can see on your pix).

That is impressive detective work! Well done. Enve certainly didn't make it easy.

I saw the same things in a flying saucer that landed on the roof of my house. Pilot said it says "We come in peace". Lying sons of b******!
