Matt Fab tyres that roll really well. Super comfy too!
Mr Tsang Tried it. Nice feel.
Norm Easiest tyre to work with. Easy off, easy on if you are changing flatted tube.
Doug These tires are light, grippy, and as durable a race-oriented clincher as I've ever used. I've gone months of riding 100-200 miles/wk without a flat! GP4000s? Don't bother. These are better where the rubber meets the road AND at the cash register.
Mr Musgrave Worthy successor to the Ultremo ZX. It rolls well, is stable and is great value from Merlin. I am very pleased with this tyre which I use for time trialling.
Phil M By far and away, these are my tyre of choice for summer (although switch to something a little more durable in the winter months). These tyres roll really well, are lightweight, and provide confidence boosting grip. I wouldn't use anything else. Would also add that Merlin's price (not for the first time) was the best I could find for these tyres (and I looked a lot!). Also, delivery was fantastic - items arrived ahead of schedule. Altogether a faultless transaction!
Mr Cohen Have ridden many miles over the years on Schwalbe tires. The One Folding is excellent. providing a "soft," but effective tire on hard dirt, to asphalt surfaces.
Col These tyres are so fast they help me to win races :)
Mr Ward This tyre is reliable and gives good sensation on the road. I do almost 4500km per tyre, which it seems to me quite good.
Mr mcnamara Love these tyres. For the past 2 years I have ridden on Continental GP4000 S2 tyres and they felt good but the wear was horrible, especially the side wall for some reason. My old man rides Schwalbe Ones and swore by them and I can see why. Feel like they are worth 2km/hr on the ride and the grip is great. Great for the price.
Mr Morrison These are great tyres with a low rolling resistance and seem to not pick up as many little nics as other brands.
Mr Herrick Astonishing upgrade from Ultremo ZX. Amazing grip, good rolling resistance, but above all, a much plusher ride (115psi feels like 95).
GonerDoug Great road racing tires. Fantastic grip in turns, good flat resistance without being heavy or sapping power. Size measured on Mavic Aksium rims is spot-on as advertised (whereas some other tires with a 4000 in their name always seem to measure a good 2mm larger and push the limits of my Supersix's chainstay width!) These tires perform nicely and last reasonably long, maybe about 3500-4500 miles for the rear before the little knicks and flat spot down the middle get to be too much. YMMV, I'm a 190lb man riding mostly-good pavement in California. I do, however, run over rocks and sticks and other stuff. I've paid 3x as much for tires that didn't last half as long and cost me 1x more in tubes. Try the Schwalbe Ones; you won't be disappointed.
Bull This is my 8th Schwalbe One Folding Road Tyre (over several orders). I'm very happy with these tires. Though they don't have road flat protection, I've only had 1 flat between 2 road bikes and several thousands of miles between the 2. The flat was actually a slice/cut in the tire. These are very comfortable and long riding tires, which by the way I can't get in the US.
Damrow Best rolling clincher tire on the market that offers the highest degree of puncture and sidewall protection. Been using them for years with latex tubes for an even more efficient and comfortable ride. They rank right up there with the "tubulars" and high end cottons but on the amateurs budget!
El Greggo The best tyres out there in my opinion, I use them all year round. Super-grippy and much better wearing than the old ZX's, Schwalbe have upped their game considerably with these tyres. 5 stars!
Mr Cartwright I bought Ones for the first time following recommendations from fellow cyclists. I had Luganos on my first road bike five years ago and was happy with them but then tried Gatorskins. I've only done 3 rides so far on the Ones but they were easy to fit, have an impressive compound and seem to have good road-rolling and good grip. Puncture protection is supposed to be better than Luganos, too.
Mr chang Great tires, rolling resistance is no worse than GP4000S2
Mr Powell These are great tyres. Was a Conti 4000s man but have swithced to these and they are equally as good and roll nicely. Have ridden previous set for 18 months and only had one puncture. Great value too.
Mr Waghorn Fantastic tyres, great for racing and spotives or just training
Mr Barker These are really good tires. Fast and love that they come in different colors. They don't last as long as the Conti, but are pretty good
Mr williams Having used these tyres for some time now I regard them as a good quality product for all year riding with good puncture resistance, and a good discounted price with merlin
Mr Duff Love theses, they grip well in all conditions and run well - although they are not as robust as the Conti 4000s they replaced. This is my second pair of Schwalbe One's, back tyre on 1st pair lasted about 10 months. Weekend riding only, so done after about 4000kms. NZ roads can be a bit rough on tyres!
Mr Crowe Best ever! For those that still want to use a tube with their clincher tyre. Rolls fast, feels good and good puncture resistance.
hudson Very pleased with this tire. As best I can see it lives up to the claim that it has less rolling resistance. My daily 22 mile ride has easily improved by .5 to .9 mph for the ride. The cornering seems excellent and the "feel" of the ride is very satisfactory at 110 psi.
Boyd What can you say, fast and sticky. For me best to have best grip and not interested in stuff like this tyre lasted three seasons. That said good wear and durability for a fast sticky tyre.
David Valerio Got this to replace a Vitttoria Pro Speed G tire that ended up having a ruined carcass after a small cut in the middle of the tire. Personally I like it so far. Feels a lot stouter than the vittoria tire. Only have about 50 miles so far, but no flats..no cuts as of yet. Not even a nick. Tire seems to handle and ride very well. I will probably end up switching loyalty from Vittoria to Schwalbe.
Mr REED Supple feel. As fast as continental GP4000 II and as light but feel less rigid giving nice flow over small bumps. Can't vouch for longevity yet but superb ride so far
Mr Godecke Well, no it's not as light as a Michelin Pro4 25mm, but it does seems to roll a bit better. And it may be in my experience the easiest to mount of any.
Vitaliy Uv Great tire. Switched to Schwalbe from Conti GP4000, and not looking back. Just as light, better grip, about same rolling resistance and stronger sidewalls.
Boyds Light, Fast rolling, excellent grip in wet and dry. What more could you need? Reasonable puncture resistance. Best of breed. Suited to those that ride for performance.
Mr Christopherson Fantastic value. A performance road tire that gives great feel and is long-lasting.
Mr girolamo Great tyres havent had a puncture yet and have been riding on them for a year, they feel sticky on the road fast and comfy.
Mac 1 Super tyres, feel fast and very surefooted, look to be very well made
Mr Ma Removed my GP4000 and put these on. One word - stunning. I can't say it rolls faster than the GP4000 literally, but the smooth feeling is noticeable. Also moved to 25mm from 23mm. It really rolls better! So far this is the tire I think I will keep using
Mr Mannerings Excellent tyres. Smooth rolling and provide a great ride.
Mr Mundy I maintain that these are the best all round 'performance-based' tyres for this kind of money. They're relatively light and puncture resistant but the main thing is their road feel, which I`ve found superior to everything but Ultremos and tubulars.
Jeremy These tires were by far the easiest tires I have ever mounted. No tire levers needed and the beads popped with minimal pressure. They are not directional which was a little different than most tires I have run in the past, but most have gone to some kind of a tread pattern on the shoulders, where these are slick all the way to the bead. I have rode them several times now and they seem to have a good rolling resistance and solid grip. It is quite cold here right now so can only imagine that as the temps go up, the tires will perform even better. As far as durability, I can not say, since I have not been riding them long, but from all indications, they are a solid tire and you can't beat the quality for the price point Merlin was offering them at.
mccluskey One of the best tyres I have ridden. Extremely fast down hill with super cornering ability. Wear factor is excellent and better than most other tyres I have used.
Mr Dodd I love these tyres. 2,000 miles and counting on my first set. Great handling, fast, confidence inspiring and as a bonus, no punctures to date. I don't need a new set yet, but with a great deal at Merlin I stocked up on another couple of pairs.
Mr Tan Great tires, first time upgrading to these over the stock Luganos, I recommend around 90 to 100 psi for great rolling resistance and comfort. Wish these came in a box.
NC Cyclist Grippy in both wet and dry, haven't gotten a flat yet in over 300 miles. Cant beat the price thanks to Merlin!
Mr Cossins These tyres are light and roll really fast. Only time will tell how well they last but from first impressions I am really happy with how these tyres perform.
KAZ This tyre is not noisy. Very silent and smooth ride. More light weight, further gain most high grips than usual, cornering feel that easy. Big sale price very nice! But,somewhat short life. Rear tire used 2500km, degradation has occurred.
Mr Toth Quality long lasting tires that stand up to all conditions that I ride in. Ridden for 6000 kilometers this season and no flats, lots of life in them yet. Bought 3 more while the price was right
Mr Reece These came fitted to my bike as standard and ride really well. I've had no punctures and no spills as the grip is great. So of course I had to get a new pair to have reday for when they wear out.
Ozan Duran They are great tyres. I bought them after my Lugano's wear off and I felt the difference from the first ride. They are fast and relatively have a good puncture protection. And Merlin's delivery was superb!
Pålsson Very easy to get on (and off), supple feel, great grip and rolls smoothly over almost any surface despite the traditional 23 mm size I ordered. Perfectly happy.
Kerem Superb tire, happy so far. Used it in wet & rough asphalt conditions at a technical HIM ride. Lots of flats for other riders, none for me.
Nakamura On using the latex tube, the tire are both light traveling feeling and good grip. Softness of the side shoulder to produce a cornering grip, but it is a trade-off between risk of side cut puncture.
Mr Claas Bought these tires to replace 23mm. I had no idea how much of a difference 2mm would make but it's very noticeable. Cornering and ride comfort are much better. Very easy to mount.
Mr Morgan Rolls very well and feels pretty supple. Can't comment yet on puncture resistance but my other Schwalbes have been good. Bargain price for a top spec. tyre though.
Peter BW I have been sweeping up old Ultremos but the day finally came to move to the Ones. Very like Ultremos, nice crumbly sticky rubber compound that saved me last weekend, and just as quick. These tyres just roll past all the Contis etc. on the downhill sections. Merlin's service was great too.
Mr Thomson I have been using Schwalbe tyres for the last four years and haven't been let down by them in all that time. I have covered almost 3000 miles on the Schwalbe 1 since buying the first pair last year and haven't had a single puncture yet. They also saved my bacon last weekend when I came around a bend in the wet and hit some rocks. The front tyre gained traction after I bounced in the air and kept me the right side up. Fully recommend this tyre.
Mr OZDEMIR After my order, it came to istanbul - turkey in 11 days. It's fast and has low rolling resistance. Max tyre pressure is 145ps1.
Mr Gillen Second set of these tires. They roll very well, handle even better and for the road conditions in southeastern Pennsylvania are more durable than I was getting out of my Continental gp4000s's. No significant cuts after roughly 3000 miles and they still have many more to go. You cannot beat the price so give them a try. You won't be disappointed.
Ratupa Drainpipe Confidence giving - I always use these tyres (I believe Schwalbe 'One 'replaced the 'Ultremo' version). I find them very grippy, quick and good value. I ride them in winter as well as summer and dont seem to get any more punctures than anyone else in my club. Bits of thread sometimes to come away from the casing but I have learnt that has no effect on performance or longevity. I ride at circa 100psi, weigh 63kg and typically cycle 80miles per week. They are easy to take on and off.
Mr Waghorn I have been using Schwalbe durano plus, but wanted to change to a lighter faster tyre so went for Schwalbe one and found them fantastic, they are super fast and so far haven't punctured or even marked or cut and I have been over lots of gravel a few times. Happy happy happy.
Mr Jenkins Impressed with the speed and handling. I have used schwalbe for ages and a devout Ultremo fan. These are as quick (maybe quicker) ride is more supple, but they are more puncture prone. Handle and grip well in the wet, I had a puncture in the first week, despite never having one in the Ultremo.... could be bad luck as they have been problem free since. Tread is thin so ideal for the Sunday blast as I don't expect high mileage from them
Mr Manin Very nice tire, low rolling resistance and good traction. This is a race tire, it won't hold for more 1500 - 2000 mi, so be aware.
clarke Best tyre I've ever bought
Doddy The delivery was very quick. I cannot fault the service. These tyres are brilliant. For such a fast tyre they do not puncture that easily although you won't get Durano type protection. Grip is excellent, even in the wet. Very happy with this purchase, thanks.
Ghost Rider Great product, great prompt service Super Price buy with confidence :o) 2 x Schwalbe One Folding Road tyre. So much smoother ride with much less drag much more grip and confidence for cornering, climbing (the Hardshells literally were that, hard shells slipping on dry rough road, now no slipping when giving it all climbing out out of the saddle without slipping). Easy fitting on Krysurium Elites, bare hands from new
Mr Baker Great tyres for all road cycling rides (Crit racing, long distance and climbing/descending). Very durable too!
Mr Garza Very fast tire, not as durable as the Continental but built for speed.
Mr Pilkington Replaced the tyre that came with my bike, which were beaded, so a lot lighter. First thing I noticed when riding was the smoothness of the ride and also quieter. Only had a couple of rides but one in the dry and one in the wet and the tyres performed very well, so no complaints yet. Will see how they get on when I tackle the Alps at the end of May.
Mr White My favourite tyre. Allot softer than Continental Gator Skins but rolls really well.
Mr Phillips Superb tyres, run really fast.
Mr Wakeling These tyres are fantastic, fast, grippy and a supple ride. Better than the Ultremo.
Mr Kingswood Only 300 miles in but no signs of wear, upgraded from 23 giant specific tyres to these at 25mm, noticiably more comfy and grippier without being slow. I`m a 25mm man now!
Scott Fast and grippy! Have had one puncture, which probably puts it below some others (eg, gatorskins) for puncture protection, though still very good!
Mr Platt Fast rolling, very grippy tyre.
