I commute to work all year round, and this is my first year where i wont have a mountain bike for the winter months, therefore was looking for some advice.
I am looking for a good pair of winter tyres for my road bike, any suggestions?
The Giant P-SLR1s are lightweight and grippy clinchers for fast road riding.
These tyres are built around 120tpi casings and they're unusual in that they're front and rear specific. They're both dual-compound, the front one designed to be stickier for extra grip while the rear one is designed to be fast and durable. As you'll doubtless know, your rear tyre generally wears faster than the front one so the idea seems sound to us.
Onza is a Swiss brand producing tyres mainly for commuters, BMX and mountain bikes, plus a few road options, including this Lavin folding clincher. Although billed on the Onza website as a 'Fixie tyre', the packaging indicates it's a 'Road/Fixie tyre', and a test pair fitted to a (geared) training bike turned out to be ideal for spring conditions on a wide range of road surfaces.
The C S3 lite is a racing specific tyre which is part of Tufo's own hybrid 'tubular-clincher' system. As the name suggest elements of both tubulars and clinchers are combined to create something in between. Something that I like to call 'clinchulars'.
Hi guys and girls, I'm new to the forums so please be nice!
I'm looking to upgrade the worn tyres on my Mavic Aksiums and have narrowed it down to Continental Grand Prix 4000S or the Schwalbe Ultremo ZX Evolution HD.
Purely from an aesthetic viewpoint I'm leaning towards the Schwalbe's as I can colour coordinate , but have heard they have weaker side walls and are more prone to punctures that the Continentals.
I do about 100miles a week on the road as my commute, with the occasional longer weekend ride.
Anyone have experience or recommendations to go for either of these?
