Rated 5 out of 5 by DStone Отличные шины для асфальта и сухого грунта
Заменил стоковые Rapid Rob 29" на эти полуслики. Размер моего обода 622x19. Встали отлично. Увеличилась средняя скорость километра на 4 в час. Качал давлением 5,5 Bar. За 150 км пока проколов не было. На асфальте ведут себя отлично, но на грунтовке (обочине) по пыли и мелким камешкам при резком повороте на скорости может ощутимо занести.
Покупал их для более комфортной езды по асфальту, что меня вполне устраивает, но и по сухому грунту и лесным тропкам вполне устраивают. В грязь на них лучше не лезть.

Rated 2 out of 5 by projexe Not the best
Used as a winter tyre in 2012 on rural lanes which is what I mainly ride. Grip was good but punctured every couple of weeks or so and rear tyre was worn down within 4 months (about 1600 miles). May be better for pure CX on softer surfaces but I won't be buying them again for winter road use

Rated 2 out of 5 by Commuterz Commuting with punctures
It seems that the puncture protection is not so good as advertised. Been commuting this summer with these tyres and had 2 punctures and it seems that small rocks get stuck in the rubber.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous These have only lasted six months of commuting to work. A bulge appeared last week in the side of the tyre. I finally got around to investigating the problem today and the side wall is almost worn through at one point. These tyres are nice and light, but they are not very tough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Gets better and better
For many MTB rides with lots of climbing/firetrail I use a rigid bike with limited tire clearance in the frame - so need to use narrow cyclocross tyres. These were the first set I purchased. Since then, I've tried others but the Sammy Slicks just keep performing better than the alternatives (Continental). They roll OK (Contis are subjectively a bit better) but the grip and predictability are way ahead of the Contis. The slightly square profile and robust side knobs make the tire hang on in loose cornering or off-camber situations brilliantly. I also use Schwalbe Rocket Rons on the same bike for mud, Sammy Slicks are not far behind their knobby cousin for grip in soft stuff. Amazing. Wear seems good - lots of riding on mixed asphalt and gravel/dirt and knobs are still pretty sharp. Downside? I tore a 5 mm hole in the sidewall on a rocky ride - see other review - 2 reviews 2 sidewall holes. Overall: 9/10

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Bit disapointed
Light, fast and grippy. So far, so good and off road, these have more grip than I'd expected, enough to keep up a fair pace on mellow singletrack without worry. However, having bought a pair of these was disapointed to tear a big hole in one on a sharp stone hit on tarmac during a long road ride. They have probably only done 400 miles and that's one in the bin already.
