- proper tough semi/knobbly 700c tyres?
always run schwalbe marathons on my tourer.
but had 2 offs recently on slippy leaves and road markings. also had a few near spills with them sliding.
I don’t know if they have changed the rubber, but they are very hard n slippy now.
so, I am gonna change to some semi knobbly tyres for the winter.Posted 1 month ago

700 x 38 would be ace.breatheeasyMember
I had the same kind of issue with some slightly strange Marathons, can’t remember the exact model (Green belt rings a bell). I used to have some Marathon XRs which were brill, but they’ve stopped making them many moons ago.
Took a punt on some Marathon Mondial Evos and I’ve used them for the last few years and really rate them. I always tend to go for the folding ones so I’m guessing they might have a slightly better rubber compound, but I may be making that up. Also tough as old boots.Posted 1 month ago
