On road tyres this narrow, any tread is purely cosmetic, it all comes down to the rubber compound. They calculated that to aquaplane on narrow road tyres you would need to be doing 200mph+
No problem glad you like them. Think if you have the clearance 28c way to go for the winter. You'll be doing Paris Roubaix on them next!
Thanks OP first ride on mine today, very pleased. They made the pitted (pitiful?) Sussex roads bearable and depsite going from 23c to 28c I didn’t feel I was any slower. Great find.
Gators are a hard shell tyre, aimed at preventing punctures. These will be softer to allow for control in poor conditions. Don't ride in the gutter you'll be fine on these.
