Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 137 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Durability without care I am not particular about details and competing. I use my road bike a lot and I call my use 'lifestyle riding' IE my bike is my transport to work, shops, family etc. I was sick of punctures at inconvenient times so bought a pair of these based on spec and reviews. They have lasted a long time and are about to fall off my bike. I need a new pair as they have just worn clean through and punctured. This was expected as I have waited too long to replace them. I am happy to have another set although i did have a very bad experience with poor grip. I was travelling at 40 mph down hill and at a bend applied the brakes only to find that these tyres were too hard to grip enough to prevent me crashing and going over my bars. I have never pushed them that far since and they are OK. 03 April 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great for winter and commuting A hardwearing and sturdy tyre ideal for winter riding, commuting and touring. 26 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Hard wearing tyres. Good hard wearing tyres and also highly puncture resistant. In use everyday across Dublin city never a flat! Dooh! 23 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Over 3500km, no flats Rode these from Canada to Mexico with no flats, despite destroying a wheel and riding on trails the whole time loaded. Still riding them today, they won't give up! 20 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by No flats, no worries I bought these about 6 months ago for an older road bike I bought second hand. The original tires were fairly old, and I rode over a broken beer bottle on my way home, rendering the rear one useless. These tires arrived a few days later, and I've put over 500km on them - road, gravel, dirt, rain, ice, snow - they've been great. Can't recommend them enough. 05 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by puncture resistant i got these for the mrs, she was gauranteed a flat every time she went out, literally. no more since these were put on 01 March 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good but overrated I commute through 45 min of London each way every day, using mostly roads, the odd bit of the pavement, and a 2 min stretch over a dirt road. I keep my tires pumped up with a proper pump. So quite sorry to report that the puncture resistant qualities of these are - to judge by my experience - quite overrated. All of my punctures happen on the roads themselves, with small potholes being particularly tricky. On the other hand, they are good, fair-gripping (only once have I had a slip), lightweight tires, so I would recommend them with the following CAVEAT "don't expect a puncture free experience". 28 February 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great tyres Nearly flawless commuting tyre. Great puncture resistance. Riding on roads into work, and around town, semi regularly go through broken glass. Unless it's a really nasty piece of glass or something you don't have a problem. Still light enough to ride on long rides, especially when you consider you're much less likely to have a puncture with them. Can't recommend highly enough. 26 February 2014

Answer: 
Hi.

It's not the tubes that are the problem. The type of puncture that you are describing is known as a "snake bite" puncture, or a "pinch flat". Your tires are under-inflated . As a result when you cycle
over the bump (potholes etc) on the road, the tyre compresses so much that the tube gets pinched between the edge of the rim and the bump on the road. This causes the puncture. Your tyres need to be inflated to the recommended tyre pressure (PSI) which is written on the wall of your tyre. The best and easiest way to inflate your tyres to the correct pressure is with a Floor Pump, which has a pressure gauge.

Answer: 
That is called a "snake bite" and is more often a result of the tyre pressure being to low. Road tyres need to be of a higher pressure and checked on a weekly basis. Check the details on the side wall of the tyre and make sure they are inflated to the upper end of the range

Answer: 
These tyres are designed for much narrower Road rims making them not compatible.

We currently have no Road/Slick style tyres to fit the 27.5" wheels.

Answer: 
This being an mtb wheel size, as such they would be a 650B. There should be marks on your tyre to say it's 650b, if so CRC have a range of tyres in this size, so see what suits you.

Answer: 
Running tyres as narrow as 700x25c should be fine; if the inner rim weighs around 15 - 16mm wide then a 23c tyre would also be fine.

Answer: 
My hybrid rims have a range of 25mm to 35mm, standard fit at 28mm. So i doubt you could go smaller than 25mm safely. Yes you will have to change the tubes, you need a range of 18 -25mm (For 25mm tyres) what you have at the moment will just be almost impossible to fit and if you did would push the tyre of the rim.
