Conti GP 4 seasons – top tyre.
Or Gatorskins for a bit cheaper. Both great and last ages.
What he said. They’re considerably lighter than the Schwalbes, but admittedly not as ‘resistant’ to punctures. The Gatorskins seem to cut up less than the 4 Seasons, but the latter feel / grip better. I do like the reflective sidewalls on the Schwalbe though.Posted 4 years agoTiRedMember
For road commuting, i would forgo the marathon pluses – great bombproof tyres, but hard work, and go for the Durano plus ( same tyre really, without the tread). Schwalbe tyres comeup pretty big, so my recommendation for a speedy commute is kevlar beaded 25c Durano Plus.Posted 4 years agoedhornbySubscriber
I have a Gatorskin on the back and a 4seasons on the front, the 4season don’t last that well as a rear but they grip really well hence front only,at try a Rubino pro on the back next. Marathon plus seem like overkill when you consider they are virtually a kilo eachPosted 4 years ago
