Twice the protection of a standard rubber casing tire. The ThickSlick is designed to withstand the harshest urban elements. Throw in versions with Urban Armor Casing and DuraStrip and the ThickSlick competes with the strongest urban tires in the market.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Miky524 Ottimo grip
Davvero un bel grip su strada liscia e asciutta, sul bagnato scivola un po'.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Max00 Great for skidding on a fixie.
I use these on a heavy fixie and they are absolutely amazing. You can literally skid while sitting on the saddle. They are very easy to install. They also have great grip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sheferd Very good tyre
I've been running Thickslicks, front and rear, for over a year now and they still have tons of life.
I have to disagree with the tyre being low grip in the wet. I've ridden many times in the wet (city - 'burb commuting - My bike is fixed gear and brakeless) and never had an issue.
I've only had 3 punctures - all in the rear, all from glass. My commute passes through back streets with bars/pubs, so loads of smashed bottles and glasses every where, so I'd consider 3 pretty good.
The down side to this is that the tyre does start to get some lacerations (image attached - if you can see it).
Whilst 3 pieces of glass have made it all the way (and probably because they were missed on one of my infrequent glass checks), the amount it has stopped must be 100 fold. I've pulled so many pieces of glass out of the tyres that never made it through.
My next set of tyres will be Thickslicks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Will1997 Really good tyre
This tyre I use on my fixed gear bike which i ride everyday and couldn't ask for a better tyre. Gone through quite a lot of tyres since i've had the bike as I ride brakeless but this one has lasted the longest by a long way. Would highly recommend!
