Mr bill Best value in a road tire. Smooth ride with a flat now and then.
Stephen These are excellent tyres for the price, I have used these numerous times previously, reliable, good puncture protection and recommend buying from Merlin as price and delivery are excellent.
Yale Fast rolling, easy to mount, conservative looking tire. These seem to wear slowly and are pretty good resisting flats.
Kenneth I have found these in 25mm to be my go to tires, and are slowly replacing the fleet. Had to get a couple in 23mm for fitting to a '93 Tommasini and a custom with a Henry James fork that will not take 25mm in the fork.
Tim Can't be beat for this money, assuming you don't mind/need 23mm tyres. Had another set running on my old steel bike for a couple of years, still going strong despite a few large cuts, roll noticeably better than the tyres they replaced.
Lorelay tremenda goma no poncha ni con vidrios agara mui bien la caretera mojado no resbala tremenda goma
Mr Ayers like this tire
Seddon I always liked the Rubino Pro3s and the slicks are just as good. Top marks from me, especially at Merlin's price
cyclosauraus rex Got these for my track bike, seem plenty fast enough to keep up with others on much more expensive tyres. Rubinos seemed the best all round tyres available and the slicks seem to have a little bit less rolling resistance than the treaded kind. Probably the best tyres anyone not earning from their racing needs.
Mr Renner I've ridden multiple sets of Rubino Pro Slick 23mm for years / 8k miles and wanted to try the 25mm with new, slightly wider rims. The difference in tire size is quite subtle. Circumference is less than 1% larger (as expected from the math) but the tread area seems wider & more rounded. I have about 300 miles on them so far and like them. Traction seems about the same, though I haven't pushed the limits.
Mr White The Rubino Pro Slick is simply the best training tire for the money, a great value. The ride quality of the 150 TPI casing is there, the grip is top notch, and the puncture resistance is among the best. The weight of 244 grams for the 700 x 25 is impressive too. Spending more really doesn't make much sense once you try these.
Rose As we enter winter I required some more durable tires. This tire was my choice and so far I haven't been disappointed.
Mr Ross This is a great tire. Don't let the "slick" fool you! It has plenty of grip and is surprisingly durable. At this price point, you can't go wrong.
Mr Britton II Superb tires, used them for years. Low rolling resistance, great traction, long wear. Best price I've ever found, and excellent service, even across the Atlantic!
Mr Baggaley Best all around tires. They last longer than any others I have used. Good puncture protection, and roll fast. Great price!
John Solid tire for the money. Long-lasting, durable, good traction, reasonably resistant to punctures.
Mr Kimber Great all around road tire. I can usually get over 2000 miles if I swap the front and rear. Not the best grip in wet or loose conditions, but the mileage is really hard to beat at this price.
Mr Ekberg Good training tire
Mr Zipp These tyres are fantastic value. I've done 4000 km on my current set and they still have plenty of life left in them. During that time I've had one puncture and that was a bit of wire which managed to pierce the tyre. They are very smooth and I would go as far as saying they roll better and are smoother than my last set of Conti GP 4000 which every one seems to love. At the price Merlin has these tyres they are a steal in my opinion. Gone up to 25mm in the current order so will be interesting to see how they go when I put them in comparison to the current 23 mm. That being said more than happy riding the 23 mm
