I can't say whether Comets or Stelvios are faster - - but the Scorchers win hands-down on comfort.
The 406-1.5's just soak up road roughness fabulously. If they are any slower (can't tell), I'll still take the smooth ride.
I only have about 30 miles on them so far - durability remains to be seen, I'm concerned that they are pretty thin-skinned.
Did I say they were smooth? At 90psi too.

I have try as well. I put on tikit, for me, primo comet is better. Samle slick tyre but comet has better rolling resistance. Scorcer is absorb bumpy road better due to fat tyre (so every tyre are)..

Just wanted to report that I was finally able to put on the "used" Scorchers
from Spring Creek.
First off, the tires didn't look like they had been ridden on before. They
looked new to me, but I'm not a tire expert so what do I know.
Second... these tires are great. I could tell a different right away.
Amazing how such a small difference in width can make a noticeable change in
Note to self... Don't doubt Vik's assessment again. :-)
