Kevlar All-rounder ?

Hi Everyone,

I am looking for a tyre which gives some level of puncture proofing but doesn't weigh a tonne.

Anything that is reasonably winter-friendly would also be useful.

After a couple of flats, I'm riding with budget Innova's. Although these are tough as old boots, they are noticeably heavy and I'm not too convinced they go ok in the wet.

Recommendations of what else is out there in the Kevlar puncture-resistant market would be appreciated.

    Conti Grand Prix 4 Seasons, preferably in 25mm flavour. I ride them all year round, last ages, very grippy in the wet and hardly ever puncture. Not exactly cheap, but worth it I think.

    What size? Can you go up to 28 mm?

    Vittoria Randonneur( PRO) is like crocodile skin and silk fused together... you can ride on glass and you can ride on glass at 25 mph, should last you half a million miles too

  • Thanks -

    Not sure if if I can go to 28mm or not.

    How would I know?

    I'm on a Giant Defy 1 with nothing customised.
