General information about our shipping
First pair of slicks I've ever bought. Replaced the standard hybrid tyres on my Subway. Fantastic! Rolls so much easier. Good looking tyre at a great price. Very pleased.
Great tire when using mtb on road/ cycle paths
Choosing new road tyres for my mountain bike took some thought, and I admit it came down to price. I am very pleased with my purchase. It is a fast tyre for the price, and handles more like a thoroughbred road tyre than many 26 inch slicks. By this I mean that it feels fast but very taught and twitchy on loose surfaces and defects in the tarmac, although it has never lost grip. My previous Schwalbe Speed Cruisers felt more forgiving, but a bit slower. So far I've had no punctures with this tyre despite a remarkable amount of glass around recently and several rapid miles of very flinty off-road use today.
Bought to replace a set of Sport Contacts I lost while moving house. As far as I know they are the best thing to put on your MTB for commuting and/or road training. I've never had a puncture and they roll super fast. I have ridden them in the wet without problems. My only complaint is that the wire bead is incredibly tight and makes getting them off and on a bit of a pain. If you are switching between them and your nobblys very often, this could be something to bear in mind. Excellent service from Merlin as ever.
Very happy with this, easier to fit than I expected. Would buy again.
Got these to replace the chunky offroad tyres for road riding. A revcelation! Superb! Absolutley flew along - 3kph faster on average than my mountain kings.
Bought so that I could use my spare mountain bike on a set of rollers. Works well, nice and smooth though hard to get on rim. Good price and quick delivery from Merlin as usual.
smooth,sleek,solid at a bargain price
Bought for my wife's MTB as she's using it more for commuting. They are good, puncture resistant tyres with low rolling resistance. They are a little hard to get on to the rim, but once on they sit very well indeed.
Excellent service, very fast delivery and the tyres are a huge improvement to my mtb!!!
Chosen because of low resistance and sufficiently high inflation pressure to ensure efficient riding on road. Tyres were easy to install on Mavic 717 rims. Pleased with purchase.
Excellent tyre, highly recommend!
