What 700c commuter tyres
Currently running Schwalbe XC comp, which have the right amount of grip as I do ride on some gravel tracks but I exceptional prone to punctures. So what should I go for that has a bit of grip and very good protection as I do not want to swap another tube with frozen hands!
Cost and Protection are key weight is not…Posted 4 years agozilog6128Subscriber
I have used Marathon Supreme in 28mm and currently have them in 35mm. They’re my favourite commuter tyre by far, they are nice and light, roll well and I get very few punctures.
I had Sammy Slicks as my last set of tyres and while I really like the way they ride offroad I suffered quite a few punctures.Posted 4 years agotomlevellMember
Conti Gatorskin Hardshell 28. All sorts of holes in the tread. I think I’ve had one in about 2000miles.Posted 4 years ago
Used offroad on gravelly potholed tracks at speed with no issues.
No tread to speak of so you have to be careful on offcamber gravel/mud or turning too quick on loose surfaces.tonydMember
I was commuting on my road bike with 23mm Gatorskins for nearly 2 years and had about 2 punctures.
Just put together a new commuter and it has 32mm Schwalbe Marathon Supremes. They seem like a good combination of puncture resistance and lighter weight (than Marathon Plus), and they have a little reflective line all the way round!
They were on offer at On One but looks like they’re out of stock at the moment.Posted 4 years agoChrisISubscriber
Been using Conti Gatorskin 25mm for the past 2 years with no problems but this year is the first time I’m going through the winter so just ordered some Conti 4 seasons. Same layup pretty much as the Gatorskins but with softer rubber. Also gone to 28mm that just fit but will give a plusher ride 😀
Wiggle have 4 seasons on for £30 each too.Posted 4 years agotechnicallyineptMember
