- 'Grippy' Road Tyres
Here’s a question, I know on the MTB I often mix different front and rear tyres (Tread/Width/brand/etc) for their respective benefits, do people often do this on their Road bikes? or is the generally done thing simply having a nice matching pair of tyres?
Giant do a Front/Rear specific tyre for their more expensive models.Posted 3 years agoTiRedMember
Mavic Yksion Pro Griplink are, well, grippy. They also have Powerlink for the rear. I find them to be very good in both 23c and 25c. They do come up quite narrow, but are a nice match to Open Pros.
Schwalbe Durano S are my stock winter tyre. Good wear, good grip and low rolling resistance. I have raced them in wet conditions. Marathon are heavier and even more grippy, but also a good choice for commuting.Posted 3 years agoglobaltiMember
Currently Ribble are offering two Veloflex Open Corsas for £52, which is good considering that they are a stunningly superb tyre with 320 tpi and a grippy cross-hatched tread in soft sticky rubber. Pumped up to 110 they ride like a Pro 4 at 100 and in the apocalyptic rain on the Ride London 100 last Sunday they felt super-secure on wet polished London roads. I really do believe they are faster than my Pro 4s and they definitely feel more secure.Posted 3 years ago
