I used to run Continental Travel Contacts which would puncture badly at the merest sight of any broken glass. Schwalbe Marathon Plus aren't really 'chunky' or 'heavy' - unless you have the uncanny ability to detect a gram or two of difference in your bike's weight as you ride it, you'll never notice. And they will prevent any more of those 'things' happening. I've twice accidentally run over half-broken bottles and suffered no effect. I happily ride through shattered glass multiple times every day with no worries.stu20001 said:Cheers everyone
I've tried the GatorSkins and to be honest they weren't as resistant as I'd hoped.
I've been running on Continental Sport Contacts which haven't been too bad. I've pulled huge chunks of glass out of them and when I 'retired' them for the Spesh ones they were covered in slashes etc. Anyway, I've just looked them up and see that Wiggle do a 26x1.3 version (my original ones were 26x1.6) which I think I may try. I know people who use the Marathon Pluses swear by them but at 1.75 wide they just seem a bit too chunky.
Shame! I have used these for a long time (inflated to 110psi) and have not had a single P* in thousands of miles. Beat the Conti Sports Contacts hands down!stu20001 said:Hi
Anyone got any recommendations for some decent puncture proof 26 x 1" tyres? I fitted Specialised All Condition Pros and got a puncture on my first journey on them
