Freedom ThickSlick urban tyres are 700c slick rubber and part of WTB's wider foray into the urban cycling market. Claimed to be the most durable tyres of their kind, mid section 25 and 28mm profiles lend themselves handsomely to winter training, Audax and weekend touring thanks to phenomenal puncture resistance, relatively low drag and excellent manners. Comfort's not bad either, although their sportier sibling, the ThickSlick Sport, shaves 80g a set and roll marginally quicker without any noticeable loss in durability.
The Gator Hardshell is a very durable, puncture resistant and comfortable tyre, at relatively high pressure it is yielding and comfortable for long rides. When it comes to a high speed training session or 50+ mile chain gangs this would not be my first choice but in terms of a winter training tyre, club runs and for committed commuters this is an excellent tyre.
Panaracer's Crosstown range is designed as a bombproof urban tyre and it certainly does put up with a lot of abuse around town. There's a price to pay for that, though, and the price is a fairly high weight and a slightly dead ride.
