Rated 5 out of 5 by Amar Forget the punctures
I haven't had a puncture for the last 14 months.I made a long ride this summer and for at least 2000 kilometers in the greeks dirty roads was the only one with no punctures.No rolling resistance and a good grip.Although never test it in wet conditions.

I use these on my commuter bike so they are out every week day rain or shine.
I was getting too many punctures and I heard of these tyres from a work colleague who told me that the London Metropolitan Police use these on their bikes due to their puncture resistance. On the London to Brighton bike ride, there were lots of coppers on bikes about, so I had a good look and he was right, they do.
Since fitting these tyres I have not had one puncture.
On the down side I have found that the grip in the wet can be a bit questionable.
So far I have put over 2000 miles on the tyres and they are still going strong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Can't fault them.
Punctures went from being a weekly/daily event to zero since I bought these seven months ago. If you use a glass-strewn tow path like I do everyday then these are essential.
They pay for themselves when you no longer need to buy inner tubes and repair kits.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous Bad winter tyre
These tyres were fine in the autumn when i put them on but come winter they were sliding all over the place. The rubber is way too hard for any real grip and i have had two falls on them in the icy weather which I probably would not have had with other tyres i have used. What's more important, not crashing, or not getting a puncture?

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous Awful Winter Tyres
I have had these tyres on my bike for about two months now. They were fine in the dry but since the winter kicked in I have had two front end losses and nearly a third. The rubber is just too hard to give any grip in the wet, or in the dirt, or in the frost. I have totally lost confidence in these now and will be replacing them with some Continental Contacts or similar as I have these on my other bike and they are far grippier (although faster wearing).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Три года езжу на этой резине. За все время имел пару проколов от гвоздей.Но гвозди попадаются редко, а вот шипы акации часто, и эта резина полностью от них защищает. Для велотуризма отличная резина. Несколько увеличенный вес колеса для туризма большого значения почти не имеет. Использовал размеры 2.00 и 1.75. 1.75 понравился больше и в горах и на трассе.

These tyres were a little more expensive and are noticably heavier than
ordinary road tyres - but pumped up hard they run really well, feel comfortable and NEVER seem to get punctures - all of which make them totally worth it.
So - my only niggle is they are heavy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous FANTASTIC !
Tryed puncture tape, slime sealer, ect absolute waste of time and money.
Put these on and what can i say they knock everything else into a cocked hat.
The ride is a little hard due to the high pressures but compared to the origanal
they are super quite, the rolling resistance is so minimal compared with origanal tyres i can not understand why people still use knobblies when their bike will never see off road use. Brilliant tyre for daily useage as punctures are a thing of the past. if you are sick and tired of constantly reparing punctures,being soaked in sweat and out of breath at your destination get a pair of these you will not be dissapointed. FANTASTIC!.

Hi CRC, I'm interested in a pair of the 1.75" tyres. Do these tyres come with or without reflective stripes?
Also thinking of buying Schwalbe MTB inner tubes to match. Should I purchase the 1.0-1.5" or 1.5-2.5" tubes? I have read that the puncture protection decreases the inner diameter of the tyre. Also that the tyres are difficult to fit and that larger tubes make matters worse.
