Heavy and not particularly plush feeling but you don't buy them for that. They last a long time and maintain their great p******e protection even with age
I use these tyres for commuting to work. My route is littered with debris and the puncture protection is fantastic. I've had 4 pairs in the past 5 years and covered 16000 miles with very few issues. Highly recommended.
Excellent puncture protection. This is the 2nd one I have bought
No flats so far. Well worth the money
Excellent tyres at a great price with fast delivery. I usually go with specilaized but these are hard wearing and perfect for my winter commutes.
Seems to be doing the job - the first of which was to be able to be fitted onto the wheel, which was possible (unlike the Continental HardShell Gatorskins that I had previously ordered and which failed miserably to get anywhere near to fitting the wheel). The Schwalbes feel sturdy and confident in the wet so I am well pleased to date
Just changed them in my bike after several punctures. Had no problems since
Brilliant tyre. Heavy but smooth rolling. Doubt I will get any puntures. Nice and grippy and predictable.
Not fitted to wife`s bike yet but we`ve used these tyres before and are perfect for town cycling, fast delivery.
Brilliant. I have done over 8000 miles so far and expect another 2000 at least and all on a fully loaded tourer. Best of all not a single puncture.
Used for 400 miles. Fitted to mountain bike due to mainly road and light trail use. Tyres roll very easily and much quieter than mud tyres. Plenty of road grip and quite good for light trail use. Easily fitted to a 29er wheel. Fast service from Merlin. Well recommended.
Superb touring tyres. I have used this product for the last 20 plus years and would recommend them without hesitation. Marlins price is best on the market.
So impressed, I bought another one. Since using these I am yet to get a puncture.
Over 2000 miles on a rear and 4500 miles on a front touring fully loaded on a Dawes Galaxy Ultra. Enough said
Great Tyre, have been running this tyre for the last few weeks on the commute to work. No punctures so far! As always great service from Merlin.
Cycling to work at 6am along 5 miles of thorn-laden lanes - essential. That blue belt is like Batfink's wings of steel :-) Steve C. Whitford.
These are without doubt the best winter tyres on the market , totally bomb proof .
Not had these long, they seem to roll well and grip is good.
