recomend me some road tyres please
I need some new tyres and dont know anything about road tyres.Posted 4 years ago
Currently running split and bulging Conti GP 3000 , so they have to go.
Do they have to be wire bead due to the high pressures, as getting the contis on and off is impossible without levers.?
Dont want too narrow or too lightweight , think comfort and puncture resistance . no i dont want to run ST High rollers UST thanks.stufiveMember
An Awsome road tyre i love emPosted 4 years ago
Michelin Krylion Carbon, light fast grippy good wearing.
Unfortunately in bought some schwalbe Ultremo ZX to replace them and have heard nothing but bad news about the schwalbes since. I’m putting off changing from the Michelin but is soon going to become inevitable….Posted 4 years agomboySubscriber
Schwalbe Durano’s in 25mm width sound exactly what you’re after. Puncture protection, grippy, yet still fast and reasonably lightweight (in the folding bead version at least). Been running these tyres for 4 months now, not had a single moment on them, unlike plenty of others I’ve tried.Posted 4 years agogonetothehillsSubscriber
I used to really rate the Krylion Carbon but they weren’t available for some time (I think Michelin moved production?) so moved to Vittoria Rubino Pro III and found them to be puncture resistant, light and pretty long lasting. I’ve recently put some Michelin Pro 4 Service Corse on the posh bike and they’re fast, comfy and seem ok for puncture resistance (shhh!) though I’m not sure they’ll last too long.
I have to say, I’m impressed with the 28c Conti 4 Seasons I’m running on the Tripster. Fast, very lightweight for what they are and robust too – they get everything thrown at them and hold up very well. Remarkably light for their capability.Posted 4 years agostucolMember
I get about 2000 miles out of my Specalized All Condition Armadillos.
They grip very well and i have NEVER had a puncture in 4 pairs of them. And that’s with 15st of me on them.
I ride on some fairly crappy Scottish roads with no fear of being let down (pardon the pun).
I did kill a front one clattering a pothole, it developed a “snake” in the carcass straight afterwards but that’s not really a critisism of the tyre.
You can get bubbles under the tread when they are getting worn. This is due to water de-laminating the tread away from the anti-puncture belt. You only notice this on visual inspection, you can’t feel it when riding (maybe on Majorca you could but not around Glasgow !)
My new road bike will be having them fitted from the word go. An excellent tough tyre.Posted 4 years agosimondbarnesMember
Spesh All Condition Armadillos ride like you’ve just wrapped your rims in lead. They are reliable though, ran them on my fixie for 4 years with no issues.
Vredestein Fortezza Tricomp on my Summer bike. Reasonably light, fast, very grippy and pretty decent puncture protection. Slightly prefer these to the GP4000s I used previously.Posted 4 years ago
