Has any one tried them?
By weight looks like TT tyre, but still have some puncture protection...

One of my favorite clinchers for the obvious weight saving, but I only use it at the front and pair it with the non-SL on the rear. Just enough tread width and very supple. Great wet grip. Don't roll exceptionally fast like GP5k tho.

Largely agree with this. Great for the weight savings, but you don't get anything for free and it does roll slower (noticeably when riding) than the top performers, and puncture protection is patchy at best. I gave up on them in the end due to the amount of punctures. I also found them to be quite a noisy tire, which I suspect contributes to the sense that they aren't rolling as freely (even though that probably has nothing to do with the RR).

You'd probably be better off trying the Agilest Light if you want a hillclimb tire, as the RR is likely to be much lower, even at 20-25kmh.

I'm not sure that's right. The Agilest hasn't tested particularly well either (BRR has the standard one pretty average, and I doubt the Light will be materially quicker). There is a test of the HYPR SL on Aerocoach, where for a pair of wheels it tests 3.6w slower than a GP5000 clincher, so not appalling, but not that bad (and I suspect not much different to the Panaracer).

That's surprising re: the Aaerocoach test ... because other Maxxis road and gravel tires have been terrible. And their XC tires too ...

Agreed - I can see the High Road TLR on Aerocoach tested at about 15w slower than the GP5000 clincher for a pair of tires - a bit eye watering... I guess the SL must have a different compound (in addition to having very little tread depth or puncture protection)

I am using the High Road Sl a lot here in the Dolomites and in combination with Pirelli Smarttubes i punctured only once in the last 10k chilometres. Only in combination with the extra thin Tubolito Sroad I had a bad feeling as the whole combination seems to be super fragile. The rolling resistance in my opinion doesen`t seem to be much worse then on my Turbo Cottons 26mm which no doubt are fast tires. Maxxis High road SL in 28mm measure 29,8 on my 21c rim (Turbo Cotton 26 mm measure almost 28), but the weight is incredible low. With a even wider tire your bike gets more then 100 g lighter without too many compromises in puncture protection in my opinion.
On the downside I must say also that they are noisy. This is what I really get nerves from and the ride on the even narrower Turbo cottons feel more supple.
