Tough, wide, cheap cyclo cross tyres
Hi Any recommendations for a tough and wide (say 35mm) cyclo cross tyre.
When I say tough I mean puts up a bit of a fight against punctures.
Cheap would be ideal, but 3 out of 3 might not be possible?
Oh and while I’m at it not too heavy rolling.
(moon on a stick??)

Funny enough, my Smart Sams have been superb on the South Downs, though they get quite exciting on short wet grass. But they seem to be struggling with one section, where I have had 4 punctures in 5 days. I think there is some sharp broken flint they cant cope with.
I hope to commute off road this winter and I’m not sure the smart sam will cope very well with wet chalk, so will consider the other options.Posted 4 years agof757lkkMember
Is it for short circuit cx racing, commuting or just trail riding?
If you’re looking for a three peaks tyre then +1 for the Landcruisers, almost indestructible and dirt cheap think mine were a tenner each, roll pretty fast on the road too. Not a proper competition CX tyre but the only choice for the three peaks.Posted 4 years agovincienupSubscriber
My wired Maxxis Raze’s (32mm) as recommended by someone else on here as a good moon-on-stick option have made me very happy. So far no flats due to ordinary puncture stuff (did destroy a tube in a bizarre kerb hop gone spectacularly wrong one morning…)
And only £11 a go from that nice Mr CRC.
They’re showing all signs of outlasting my previous Contis by a massive amount.Posted 4 years agoboxelderSubscriber
Land cruisers don’t puncture because they’re thick and heavy. I’ve used Panaracer cindercross on last two 3 pos without any issues – more grip and faster rolling (and I’m no lightweight).Posted 4 years ago
For on/off road commute I use conti – speed cross or whatever they are. Cheap and no issues.somafunkSubscriber
if it’s for general riding on tarmac roads with occasional excursions onto decent paths/bridleways (if your down south) then what about the Clement X’Plor USH which comes in at 35mm wide?, perhaps a bit dear at £30 a tyre though.
I’ve got the Clement X’PLOR MSO in 40mm and Strada LGG in 28mm for my Kinesis Tripster ATR and they’re fantastic tyres.Posted 4 years ago
