Tubeless road tyre options?

I am intending to swap over to tubeless tyres in the new year.

Currently thinking that Schwalbe ones might be my first choice - I want something fairly durable for training rides and sportives.

The other option seems to be fusion 3.

Am I missing any good candidates and or are there any others due to launch?

It seems a bit crazy that there are so many more tubeless rims available than tubeless tyres!

    Before Ugo jumps in I will link to his recent "road test" of the Schwalbe One

    You might not want to look any further
  • Schwalbe one seem to be the ones to have, just ordered some from xxcycle.com, cheap cheap.

    I have the One's in a 28 and I could not be more pleased with them. A lot smoother ride than my Ultremo's. A censored to fit though!

    Evans have 25mm Bonty R3s on sale. They're good but they wear quite quickly

    I've had some Schwalbe Ones for a month or so - so far, so good

    Very easy to fit and seat of the pants feel is that they're as quick as the Conti GP4000s they replaced

    Only issue was the price

    Have ridden One tubeless for 6 months, a couple of thousand miles or so and they're still going strong. I'd concur with the review and add that I felt the Hutcheson compound was harder and less girppy on the Atom's I had. I'd guess they're similar if not quite as robust as Fusion's. I ride mine on Easton tubeless wheels and rented a bike with Conti's on Mavic Kysrium's at 110 psi in the Pyrenees recently, the One's at 80-90 psi on my wheels are way more comfortable! No hesitation recommending them to anyone interested in giving tubeless a try.
