I have ridden with both the 20 X 1.5 100 PSI as well as the 10 X 1.75 75 PSI Schwalbe tires on my recumbent on a 4300 mile coast to coast tour across the U.S. I had only 1 Flat. My son utilized the same tires on his recumbent and also had only one flat. We swapped out tires at our halfway point just out of principle rather than necessity. The tires were doing fine and we had no problems. Our only flats were on the 1.5 100 PSI tires.
The rolling resistance difference between the two tires in negligible. The wider, lower pressure tire (1.75 75 PSI) felt more forgiving with pavement defects, linear cracks, and rough surfaces and provided a more secure ride.
Nothing comes close to the quality and security of this tire except for maybe a Schwalbe Marathon Plus! You may pay more dollars for this tire, but you will not be dissapointed in its reliability and performance.
Thank you for your feedback.
