    Has anyone used it? Are they really that puncture resistant as they claim to be?

    I've used them. Yes, they are as puncture resistant as they claim to be. And, yes, they are heavy (look at the tread - they have huge knobbies on the sides, plus the very thick slick in the middle) - but they are Dutch tires, made largely for the Dutch/German market where people bicycle to work and back each day on flat surfaces. But I would not recommend buying these. I had two of them - both on the back wheel - and both of them blew out the sidewall. I don't think the sidewall is very strong. I switched and have now used Schwalbe Marathon Plus tires for 6 years now, and I swear by them - never had a puncture, and never had a sidewall blowout (oh, by the way, the Vredestein Spider Max sidewalls both blew out in less than a year of use - something wrong there).
