- Any 700c x 28 tyre better than Conti 4 Seasons?
Am I missing any little gem before I push the button on a new pair of 700c x 28mm Continental 4 Seasons?Posted 6 years ago
In my experience, they roll well, are quite light and pretty puncture resistant. The pair I had lasted fairly well but were a little prone to cutting up – but I guess that’s the payoff for decent grip.
Is there anything else out there with similar (or better) performance and comparable weight in a 28mm – 32mm width?
My gp4000s have been very good but I’m not sure how they compare on puncture resistancePosted 6 years ago
New Schwalbe One’s are available in 28c. Speed and grip wise they’ll trump the Conti’s, and they’re usefully better protected against punctures than the likes of the Ultremo’s.Posted 6 years ago
I’ve been running Schwalbe Ultremo ZX 700c x 28’s for quite a few miles with no issues at all.
They seem fairly puncture resistant and roll well.Posted 6 years ago
Thanks very much for these suggestions. I’d not seen the “One” – though it’s a chunk dearer than the 4 season. Heard mixed reviews on the Ultremo but maybe worth a shot. I’ve used GP4000 in the past and they’re very good but a little prone to cutting I’ve found. They’re certainly light and fast. I think I’m too tight to put the racy tyre on that I want to, given the bike gets used for so many different duties. The 25c Gatorskins on it at the moment are fine but I think I’ll sacrifice a bit of speed and weight by going to a comfier 28c.Posted 6 years ago
The Schwalbe tyres are usually a fairly good price on the German sites
I’ve bought all my road and CX tyres from there and paid much less than Uk prices.Posted 6 years ago

Id put money on tweeks not actually having them in stockPosted 6 years ago
Probikekit have gp 4 seasons for £29.99, or they did last week when I bought a new pair. Although I paid £23.99 each as I had a 20% off code 🙂
And to answer your question, no I’ve not found better.Posted 6 years ago
Funnily enough I was talking to a friend on a ride tonight about gp4seasons. We both fitted a pair a little over a year ago, he’s now got 9000k recorded on that bike, I’ve got a little over 7000k on mine.
The tyres have proven fast(how anyone can validate another tyre is faster I can’t imagine), grippy(many of those miles were on rough broken sandy muddy roads) and reliable(neither of us has had a single puncture.
Mine still have plenty of life in them, but when they do need changing I can’t think a single reason to even consider anything else.
I like em 🙂Posted 6 years ago
Currently trying the Hutchison Sector tubeless but they are more money and they’ll need to wear well to trump the default GP4Seasons. Wet grip definitely isn’t as good.
+1 Tweeks and ‘in stock’ don’t sit comfortably together.Posted 6 years ago
