Mr Dickerson Bought these tyres for my winter bike, Great price and great tyres so far. As always prompt delivery from Merlin.
Mr Psihis Excellent
P Good value for the money. I don't think there is anything better available in the market for this price.
Mr Lourenço Dias Excellent! cost effective. I recommend it.
Mr cossey Great tyre hard wearing and roll well perfect training tyre
Mr teixeira pneus excelentes para treino, com um preço muito bom
Mr UEMURA good
Mr Morales Las mejores gomas del mercado en lo que respecta a la relación calidad/precio. Se sienten muy bien con mi peso de 105Kilos a 120psi.
Daniel Just ever-so-solid training tires that provide a predictable ride and sure footing. I don't usually try to push them, but they've handled the odd surprise hard turns (in the dry) with aplomb. Not sure I'm ready to try hard maneuvers in the rain with these, but aside from that, they' just all-around good.
Vedur 4000s tech for less. Get them
MS Have stuck to these tyres for years and bought folding version for longer trip. Good price for Continental.
David Wanted some 28mm tires, already using the 25s and love them. Great brand, no problems so far.
David Fantastic tires, very low rolling resistance and great grip on the road.
douglas Amazing price, amazing delivery. These tyres came on my bike, great puncture resistance, great life, and roll and grip well in all conditions.
Martyn Great value tyres, good grip and low noise - can't complain for cheap commuter rubber.
Dr Smith Good tyres for the everyday ride
Mr Bertholdi This tire is differential has a great cost benefit, has adapted very well to the climate in Brazil, with excellent adherence to bad floors and low wear over time. Does not dry with the high temperatures in Brazil
Mr Wilkins Nice tires little on the heavy side but good grip and the 28mm size feels good. Good tires for the price!
Charlotte Arrived quickly and have made a real difference to my road riding for the price. Very sturdy and grip feels good. Good value overall.
Christopher Another product that's been around for years. Started back into racing on these years ago and they're still going strong. Says something when years later I use them to keep fit on. (Every little extra helps!!).
stephen Great tyre at a fantastic price.Why spend £40 on a tyre to ride on the sort of roads we have.
Ravenhash Value for money, awesome grip on dry and wet roads
Mark Great tyre, nice comfortable ride on 700c x28
robkoga A good cost benefit tire.
Mr Karaman Every year I bought it from merlin for my training. As you know it is a little bit soft to use in the race. But considering its price it is really good training tire.
Pablo Good performance. Don't pay much more for other expensive tyres. Not worth it
Mr Inakawa Good product for this price. Price of gp4000 is twice as much, but its performance is not so different
Gary Bought these to replace the stock Vittoria Zaffiro IIs on my road bike. 28mm version. Did a 50 km first ride in heavy rain (spring time ) in Sydney, Australia. Had much more grip in the wet than I was expecting and would be an excellent commuter or training tire.
Mr Johnson Feels good on any material wheels. Exceptionally good on my 88mm carbon wheels
Lai Meng Excellent price for both my road bikes. Excellent wear and value.
Mr Sarac Decent tire for training and commuting. Comfortable and provides adequate grip
Mr Henderson So far so good. Only been on a couple of rides but I like them a lot.
Jay aka WinderRider Used the Ultra ll for yrs. BEST tire value bar none. Long wear... excellent grip and not easily flatted.
Mr Coolican Great road tyre. Fast with low rolling resistance and certainly can be used in races.
Mig Ferreira Great training tyre. Doesn't roll like the GP4000, but resists punctures just as well and half the price.
DIEGO These tires will give you a good bang for your buck and a reasonable performance. My previous pair of ultra sports lasted me around 6.000 Kms (3.700 miles) without one single puncture. Maybe I was really lucky, but I will give them another try.
Mr Wingrove Great tyre, it`s durable and rolls well. Tried others but favour these Continentals. Can`t go wrong for the price. They cope well on our poorly maintained British roads.
Sir Arellano Cheap but very good everyday tire.
Steven Great tyres. Difficult to find in my neck of the woods. I've used these tyres before and always found them very durable and flat resistant. I am using a Fulcrum 5LG wheelset and found it really tough getting them mounted. It could be that they are new and when and if I get a flat, the process should be easier. Let's hope so.
Mr. PMJpolicajt Absolute great tyres for this price. I had 4000S II before and couldnt observe any difference except a little more weight. For winter training just perfect. I think it can be use in races as well without issues.
Mr Clements Assured grip and the 25mm offer extra comfort over the 23mm. The folding bead is noticeably lighter than the steel bead. Excellent commuter tyre
ben Fast and great puncture resistance :- well worth the money all year round tyre esp winter
Jules Great value. First 100 miles on wet / mucky country roads went well- no issues / no punctures. Also my first set of folding tyres - easy to install .
Mr CLARK Great tyres, been using these for years, very grippy and ideal for Summer use. Some say they puncture easy but I find any tyre can puncture given the same conditions, these are cheap and I would rather buy 2-3 sets of these than one pricey tyre. I run them in Winter too but some might prefer a thicker tyre.
Michal The 28c model adds and lot of comfort to the ride, without losing speed. Absolutely recommended for the price.
Mr Gillespie Bought to replace my Michelin pro 4's. They are a much more confident riding tyre both cornering and braking though they feel a little sluggish on the climbs in comparison. 4000GP`s would probably be a more direct comparison. For the price they are very hard to fault and I'm very happy the the excellent service from Merlin's.
Mr Lightburn Fitted to rear of my no. 2 road bike. Run 4000SII on no. 1. Feel comfortable enough but unable to judge durability yet.
Mr Swarbrick A dependable entry level folding tyre to have in my bag should I need it whilst riding. Good price and quickly delivered.
CUontheroad, Adams Always my first choice when you want a good lasting tire. I will keep my eye out for more sales on this one. Thanks for the deals MCL.
Murf First time I have tried these tires and they seem very good so far, only done about 300km but they feel nice on the road.
Mihai Really not expensive tyre... even if other say that it wears way to quickly I guess that at thie price you can easily afford to replace them once in a while. Do recommend.
John Great tyre for the money, rolling resistance and weight a big improvement on the Lugano I had fitted. Quick delivery.
Mr Napolillo Tire is very nice. With the correct tire levers it is not to hard to get on the rim. Pay attention to direction of spin of tire when mounting so you do not have to do it more than once.
Paul Skinner Very good tires for off season riding or commuting. Durable and very flat resistant. I have the 25 mm Ultra Sports on my Jake the Snake cyclo cross bike and take them over gravel roads and trails with no problems. Great tires and great value for the money. Highly recommend them.
fred.e Purchased for my friends trainer bike, nice feel - cheap price but quality tyre
Mr Oglesby I have used these tyres before and they have been puncture resistant. Good value for money.
Alex No Problem in fitting to the rim and inner tube. Bought a Campagnolo Scirocco Wheelset and fitted perfectly. Fitting was neither too loose nor too tight. Tyres seem to have the right grip.
BROOKS Great value for money tyre, good grip and good wear life.
Mr harrop-Peel 3 rides in, great so far, I live in Dubai and good with sand etc
Dr Herman Great basic training tyres. Probably good for commuting too, but that is not what I am using them for.
James Frew We have used Continentals for years. We see riders grinding to quick halt with a pinch or other flat while we spin by their repair efforts. Buy great tyres and don't compromise. At Merlin fab prices and great service why would you say no!
Mr Shields Second set of these. Great all rounder and priced well.
Miss Jewell Light, fast and good looking tyre, that has certainly made the bike that touch faster...Decent on the hill climbs too! And at a fantastic price with Merlin once again!!
Mr Julian My favourite tyre. Confident handling in most conditions
Mr Lam Simple functional tyres that r Good for training and just be careful with what u r going to run over tho. Don't go too wild it's a low cost tyre after all. so far so good, but shall be cautious as with riding bikes in general.....
Mr MCNAUGHTON Excellent price for a well recognised quality product and very fast and efficient delivery within 2 days which is one of the reasons why I'm always happy to deal with Merlin Cycles - as always very satisfying!
Mr Baker Bought these to replace tyres on my boardman comp. Great tyre, rolls effortlessly, lasts quite well, about 1700 miles on the rear. These are great tyres and as usual merlin cycles cannot be beaten for price or service.
Mr Pattillo Quality product & first class service
Mr Bertholdi Excellent for trainning, and good price...
Mr Haley Excellent value and great service
Mr bugeja Light & fast, great value bought three, dispatched quickly. Very happy to do biz with Merlin again.
Mr Bertholdi Good for trainning on roads..
Mr carter Only used once for a 100 mile slippery Sportive road ride they kept me upright with no puntures, so good so far.
Gran Jose Nice tyres -and ok price. Have been running the same pair of specialised armadilllos for the last two years with no punctures- guess what happened the first day I fitted these?! Mind you the offending article looked suspiciously like a small strand of trimmed gear cable- Oops....
Mr McEntee Ordered this product on friday and it was delivered next day, saturday, absolutely amazing! The price was also cheaper than your competitors and the continental tyres are marvellous value for money. Well done Merlin Cycles.
Mr Doyle Great value tyres and great service from Merlin. The tyres were a bit tight to get on, however, this may just be my rims.
Steve Hudson Great all round training tyre with good rolling resistance. Very good puncture protection, even on broken inner city roads. Great service and price as always from Merlin, a highly recommended product.
Ian P. Quailty good value training tyres.
Mr Otsuka good product with a very good price. i use this tires every day in my road bike and i dont have anything to complain.
Mr Stacey Great tyre
