Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Excellent !!!
I have a set of these on my Gravity Racer. They have proove very fast and durable.
We are hitting speeds of over 60 KPH. They grip well with the corners.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Good value slick tyre
I've had city jets in different sizes now - I love the look of the little 16 inch ones on my RSW and as a slick upgrade for a mountain bike they handled road and trail with ease. They're nice and fat, roll pretty well, wear well and aren't too difficult to fit. Puncture resistance is good and they offer good value for money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous tyres ok
I fitted two of these tyres to my sons KMX 3 wheeler( 2 steering wheels at front single drive wheel to rear)they are baring up quite well as they take quite a pounding on the cornering.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous good tire for commuting
I bought this tire for my commuting (ex-moutain) bike, as a front tire. It has a low rolling resistance, and has enough volume , especially with a suspended fork.
THe only drawback is that it is made in Asia (hutchinson and michelin bike tires are still made in France)

Having read various other reviews of these tyres I feel I should report that I bought and fitted them with some 1.5 inner tubes, they went on as easily as expected first time around and I'm running them at about 60psi.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous So far, so perfect...
I'm fortunate enough to have two bikes, one a full suspension Trek I can now use for nothing but off-road fun, the other a rather ancient Marin Bolinas Ridge I inherited from my brother.
I decided to retire the Marin to commuting, its light weight, full-rigid frame lends itself to the daily run to and from the city-centre office. The only thing I've changed on the bike are the tyres, from the old knobblies to these City Jets. The difference was immediate and incredible, the down hill run in the mornings became an utter breeze, the huge lack of rolling resistance making it feel as if the tyres were riding themselves. Pulling away at the plentiful red lights became a doddle and the uphill return journey after a days work, very nearly became a pleasure!
I'm a little concerned how they'll perform in the dawning winter/wet/mushy season as they seem to perform so well in the dry but I have no need to push them very hard so hopefully won't get any problems. If I do, I'll swap them for a more specific wet tyre and keep the Jets for Spring and Summer.
They're that good.
