    RoRo durability compared to MK Supersonics-black chili

    Just wondering if anybody can compare the 2 as I'm coming off a set of MK SS's. I would love to get the RoRo without the snake skin because of weight and the snake skin has a lower tpi (less supple?).

    As far as taking big knocks or rocks they would be about the same[ not much protection at all]. The conti SS age more from general use because of their thread bare casing finish .
    Black chilli tread wears better than Schwalbe compound though.Maybe use an xking racesport on the rear.
