Brilliant. Once you get them on.
on 27 February 2015
Before I write anything else, then let it be known that I know the cycling gods are about to punish me for hubris. I will get punctures front and rear tomorrow. OK, let's begin...
I had awful problems with punctures. Terrible. Every other time I went out I had a flat. So I bought these. Firstly, they are a sod to get on. Almost impossible. A two man job when you both have hands of iron and nothing to do for three days. Once on, they are brilliant. There is a layer of puncture resistant blue stuff (according to the photo) between the puncture resistant layers of the puncture resistant tyre. And the whole thing feels bullet proof. I will leave it to others to discuss the rolling resistance and how many watts are lost due to the thicker nature of the tyres. All I can say is they feel more solid than the previous ones and the slight tread makes them feel safer in the wet. Plus, no punctures so far.
So, as I say, really awful to get on. But, fingers crossed, once on, they are on for a while. They seem excellent
