I'm a big fan of the schwalbe pro one tyre, supple, good crr and you can run tubeless.
11 miles into a TT last night my rear tyre starts to hiss and then I realise I have a puncture, before I have time think it over the puncture is sealed and still in the game with 9 miles to go. Second overall with a softer tyre and 40s down on the winner.


Agree, I used to use Conti for everything but the Schwalbe Pro ones are excellent. Not set them up to be tubeless yet though.

I've gone back to 23mm due to the clearance on the Argon18 (want to use same wheels on both Propel road and Argon TT) and can feel the difference in comfort from the 25mm.


My E-112 will take a 25mm on the back, but I had to buy some longer dropout screws (B&Q) to get clearance from the seat stays.

Thanks - hadn't thought of that. Or been bothered enough.


Had no problem with Vitt Pro 25mm on my E118.

I'm sticking with gators on my roadie for commute activity. Might try Conti 4000 for fun rides.

I've had the same Gators on my CX/winter bike since 2011; okay it only gets used for winter training now, not commuting too....but they seem to last forever, albeit at the expense of some grip.
