General Information
Matt tread which seemed to be part of the carcass- There was no apparent tread stuck on a carcass but it was quite tough.
They were notoriously buckled although with care during gluing they were quite usable.
The valves were slightly short compared with average making inflation slow.
The G9 Special was fast and designed for track use. I used them for time trialling with great effect.
They cost £7 around 1990 which was half of anything comparable. They came in dull (green?) cardboard boxes.
They were also notoriously tight and some people failed to fit them at all!
