    This is the second set on a new to me Greenspeed GTX. I've know about Scorchers for quite some time but price and some reviews kept me from trying them. Having them on the GTX was good because I've gotten to use them now for the past 7 months. I found I really like them. I like the idea they're 1.50" wide and that you can run down to 40 psi or up to 100 psi. I like the ride, I've been running them at 60 psi.I did have one of the front tires develop a slow leak, s oI decided to check that. It wound up being the tube itself, it had been patched several times. The tire dismounted easy, no drama, went back on the same. I had also heard horror stories about this. I just installed the new ones the other day. Easy mounting and they seated perfect round no wobbles. I did have to take 2 of them up to 90 psi to seat the bead, but that happens. Rode them yesterday 20 miles, just as nice the old ones which were non Kevlar. I feel they are just as fast as Comet's and with more tread then Comet's myself. I have Kevlar Comet's on my other trike, 20 X 1.50, the Scorchers ride better in 16" IMHO

      These didn't get any more flats than Schwalbe Marathons and ride better. Sturdier than they look - we've gone on a lot of rough roads with them. Not sized as accurately as they might be - didn't seat super evenly around the rim - not a problem in practice. Widest tires I've found in 349 size, wish they had some tread for loose surfaces, but they're still better for most off-road than narrow, hard, high pressure tires, and these will go high pressure if you want.

          I've gone thru several Kevlar Scorchers now, starting with 6 new ones (on two trikes). For comfort I run 60 - 80 pounds pressure in them.My first Scorcher quickly developed a large bubble in the sidewall/ from the inside it appeared as tho the belt was coming apart; I trashed it and ordered a replacement. The replacement arrived with three stabs/cuts in the sidewall. The folks here @Powereoncycling.com gladly replaced it/even picking up the return postage. Now another tire has a one inch zig-zag split along the wear area. All six tires appear rough, as thou I ride on sharp stuff. On the plus side -they are still holding air. Oh, I did continue to have numerous flats/ my primary reason for trying the Kevlars over my original/lesser Scorchers. In frustration I eventually switched to over sized Walmart "slime tubes": that seems to have satisfactorily ended my flat problems.My mileage on these now totals 1400 on one trike and several hundred on the second trike. In summary: I really like the Scorchers looks and handling, but not their wear/failures and high price. Due to my experiences I will try another brand on the higher mileage trike.
