Thanks to its DuraSkin™ anti-tear fabric, the Grand Prix 4-Season holds up under extreme conditions. In the Paris-Roubaix race, the “Hell of the North”, cyclists equipped with DuraSkin™ enhanced tyres have the fewest tyre related problems during the race. Incorporating our special wear resistant carbon compound, the tyre is characterized by very good mileage performance as well as excellent adhesion on wet roads and at low temperatures. The various size options make it possible to select the right tyre for various road qualities and comfort requirements. A double Vectran™ Breaker belt under the tread raises the puncture and cut protection to the highest level available on the market.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 56 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very good winter tyre I fit these tyres in the winter for training / commuting and the grip in the wet is very reassuring even in temperatures down below 10C. (In similar conditions a summer tyre would be like riding on ice). Definitely recommend for anyone who rides on wet roads, they are expensive but worth it for the extra grip. They are very strong and puncture resistant (compared to summer race tyres). They are heavy. Very strong steel bead makes them quite difficult to fit. Wear isn't great, I wear them out in 1 or 2 winters, so probably 2-3000km. 27 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by one of the best tyres on the market Superb tyre. Been using it since november and so far no punctures or other defects. Will definitely buy it in the future again! 04 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by great autum through winter and into spring tyre this is a great tyre for the road during the wetter months, in my case the classic autum/ winter/ spring seasons. good grip and water shedding on damp or wet raods during and after rain. the kevlar layers have mean the tyre wears out instead of blowing out. very happy. i put the new one on the front and transfer the old front to the back. this works well. 20 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great winter tyre Ive been using this as a winter training tyre for about 6 months now with no issues. Durable, grippy and no punctures so far 29 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best puncture resistance bar none These are the best for puncture resistance and always use on rear wheel. 25 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by good tyre This is a good all round Tyre with low rolling resistance 22 March 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Poor puncture protection I bought these tyres on the basis of the supposed puncture protection and good reviews. They grip well and handle fine however the puncture resistance seems to be highly exaggerated. I use the gator hardshell tyres on my other bike which are far better and get far fewer flats in the same conditions on the same cycle path. For road use only they may be satisfactory but if your commute includes cycle paths (Tarmac but often dirty) then get something more durable. Have had 4 punctures in 2 weeks, each one new, not old debris in tyre or rim. Going to try the super sport plus on my commuter now and hope for better. 16 February 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great puncture resistance and roll really well - the perfect tyre for all seasons I use these tyres on my commute (28c) and winter bikes (23c) and despite all the winter debris washed into the roads have ridden a minimum of 10k with no punctures! .They roll really well and can be used throughout the year. I tend to check/remove any flints etc from the tyres on a regular basis and keep the psi fairly high 04 February 2014

Answer: 
most tyres are sold as single units, i tend to buy a couple at a time. i rotate the tyres by discarding the rear, replacing the front one with the new tyre, then replace the rear with the used front tyre. the rear tyre will create a flat groove on it as it wears out as it has most of the weight and the power going through it.

Height difference between 28c and 25c

Dear sir/madam

Please advise if there is a height difference between a 25c tyre and a 28c tyre. I am currently running the 4 season 25c tyre and I noticed that there is very little vertical clearance between the frame and the top of the tyre.

Kindly let me know if there is a significant height difference between the 25c and 28c tyre.

Regards
TTH

Answers

Answer: 
Yes and no; the rolling height of the tyre ultimately depends on the width of your rim and the pressure you run, but you will often find that of two tires of the same model, the wider one will have the lower rolling resistance. So the benefit of the narrower ones come in at high speeds (wind resistance). Pack racing probably doesn't notice this benefit though unless you're always at the front pulling and not drafting anyone.

A 28c tyre would often run slightly taller than a 25c, but the only way to know for sure if it will cause a clearance issue on your particular setup is going to be when you try it.

Answers

Answer: 
Yes, these tires should be fine on a 'hooked' rim.

Modern rims generally come in one of two types. The classic straight side rim locates (or seats) the tire on a shoulder matched in diameter to the inside of the tire and has flat insides to keep the rim from blowing off. The only thing that keeps the tire on is the strength of the wire bead which resists stretching enough to go over the top and blowing off.

Hook edge rims have ridge or hook along the inside of the outer edge. The tires bead goes below the hook which seats the tire. Hook edge rims are better for high pressure light tires, especially those with Kevlar vs. steel beads. The tire's own pressure keeps the tire from blowing off by pushing the bead under the hook and trapping it there. This design reduces the strength requirement for the bead and allows higher pressure, lighter tires.
