I am in the process of doing my yearly bike freshening (you know, the full bike strip and rebuild) and am replacing my tires among other things. Usually I would just find something cheap, but I want something with a mix of being a little weenieish and a little durable. They are going on my Reynolds Assaults.
So what are your favorite clincher tires?
Durable, good grip wet and dry, puncture resistance and predictable handling and at the right pressures comfort is also good.
I have tried Michelin Pro Race 3 and Schwalbe Ultremos which both wore quickly, had poor grip in the wet and puncture resistance wasn't as good as the Contis
Parlee Z5 XL (6055g/13.32lbs) Trek Madone 5.9 (7052-7500g)Jonesman Columbus Spirit (8680g)
Chase your dreams - it's only impossible until it's done
My second fav is Serfas SecaRS...$27 delivered.
Neuvation F100 11' "Road Bike" 16.80lbs
Specialized Tarmac Pro 11' "WW Bike" 14.25lbs
They are around 216g each
GP4000s are not 200-210g either... More like 230-235g each
Conti supersonics are great in the front and 150-160g each..
Not a good rear tire as they are pretty thin..
no Vittoria OPen kx has become one of my favorites after taking it on adventures, i'm really confident in them, and they're solid and grippy for vittoria open tubulars.
the GP4000 is definitely a good choice, not a great fave though but good.
fortezza tricomp is quite nice but i don't like em in the wet
