Puncture Protection Tyres

Hi there

I'm looking for recommendations for the best puncture protection road tyres 700 x 25mm. I have previously used Continental Gatorskin Hardshell tyes which are very good. Any others as a recommendation?

Thanks in advance

Folding kevlar bead is completely different from kevlar puncture protection.

Another vote for Schwalbe Marathon Plus ..... but had you also considered Slime (or similar) self-healing tubes too? I find it best to double up.
As a 300lb cyclist I've done nearly 24,000 miles in the last 10 1/2 years with only one puncture out on the road ..... and I blame my own carelessness for that one. Peace of mind at the cost of a few ounces of extra weight.

I swear by Schwalbe Marathon Plus tyres too and have these on my gravel/all purpose bike but I don't think they are good to run as 25s on a road bike - or are they? I may be wrong.
