Tyres and Tubes - Deal Roundup
Tuesday, December 5, 2017 - 13:11
Today we've got some excellent rubber for road, MTB and commuter bikes.
The wet roads that seem to be a constant at this time of year will quickly highlight worn out tyres. The grip dissapears pretty quickly and your ability to go around corners safely goes with it.
So, if you're putting in a lot of miles on the road, or hitting the trails this winter, tyres should be at the top of your upgrade list.
Schwalbe Lugano Road Tyre
These tyres are a bargain option for training or winter use. They grip well in the wet and feature good puncture protection from the K-Guard.
At this price, it's an inexpensive way of giving your bike extra grip.
Vittoria Corsa G+ Clincher Pair
This tyre announced the arrival of graphine as an excellent compound for using in tyres.
The Corsa has always been an immensely popular racing tyre thanks to a high thread count and excellent grip. In clincher form, it's more versatile for those wanting to use this for regular road riding.
Schwalbe CX Pro
If you've got yourself mixed up in some cyclocross, these tyres will be perfect for the British winter.
They have a grippy tread that still rolls well and you can even make these tubeless, we've done it successfully on Shimano's R510 wheels.
Schwalbe Winter Spike Road Tyres
The perfect tyre for the die-hard commuter. This one can probably be used more than you think and those in really cold countries, like Scotland, can use this nearly all winter.
The idea is that the spikes bite into the ice on the road giving you grip where there isn't any. The 30mm wide option should also help, especially when run at super low pressures.
Continental Country Plus City Tyres
If you're riding a hybrid around town, these city-specific tyres from Continental are perfect.
At 42mm wide, they have all the grip and comfort you could ask for. With plenty of puncture protection, they'll see off glass and thorns so you can ride without worry.
Continental X King 29er
Whilst the tread pattern is more suited to summer than winter, these X Kings still work really well on drier winter days.
With low rolling resistance, these are also a great option for those that ride to the trails.
Schwalbe Nobby Nic SnakeSkin TLE
A better option for the mud is this Nobby Nic. The tread is much more agressive, with excellent mud clearing capabilities.
Making these tubeless is a breeze with Schwalbe's TLE system. The Snakeskin casing is cut-resistant to prevent those ride-ending flats.
Stans No Tubes Sealant
You can never have too much sealant to hand. We've been caught out enough to have learnt our lesson.
This Stans stuff is tried and tested. We've used it not just in MTB tyres, but for cyclocross and road tubulars too.
Vittoria Corsa G+ Tubular
These lovely Corsa tyres also come in a tubular version. They're quite possibly the ultimate road racing tyre, with great grip and a supple casing.
They also mount up really well, going on straight easily in our experience.
Continental Sprinter Gatorskin Tubular
Should you not have the smooth roads for delicate tubs, these Sprinter tyres with Gatorskin puncture protection will see you keep air in your tyres.
In fact, these tyres are mile crushers with riders reporting up to 5000kms from the rear tyre and even more from the front.
Continental Competition Tubular Pair
Fighting the Vittoria Corsa for the title of ultimate road race tyre are these Competitions.
The advantage that these have is Continental's Black Chilli compound which is really excellent in the wet weather.
