Good tire, smooth rolling and handled well also very comfortable when compared to other tubeless offerings on the market. Having run Conti, Schwable, Hutchinson these tires compare very well. I would purchase these again, however be aware the millage is limited. I was able to get around 1692km before the rear tire needed replacement, you may have been able to run it for a while longer but I had other tires and didn't want to run them to the edge before replacement.
I'm a huge Schwalbe fan and I find this latest tire to be their smoothest one so far. The difference between these and the last iteration is pretty noticeable. I will say that all Pro-level tires by Schwalbe are prone to cuts, but it's nothing a little Shoe-Goo can't overcome.
Full disclosure, I had a bad run with 4 of these, notched it up to bad QC and early adopter-itis. BTD was great about helping me out with that, so kudos to them.
I am running 28's on my Defy. The feel, rolling, and traction of these tires is wonderful, comparable to me to the Conti 4000. They wear very fast however, and I am constantly leaking Stans all over the garage and all over my down tube while riding. Material seems very soft with ineffective puncture resistance. Usually they seal up before I lose too much air, but not always. Oddly, they will seal for a week and then when I am getting ready to ride and pumping them back up to the 75-80 psi the sealed hole starts to weep again. I have so little faith in these tires I am starting to pack 30 ml of Stans and two cartridges. If the Conti 5000 tubeless were actually humanly possible to dismount and mount on the road I would go that way instantly. Torn on these tires. A lot of $$ for the mileage you get, great ride and rolls fast, but seem to continually have cuts/punctures. Often on the side walls, which has me wondering if there is a design problem (yes, I am an engineer). If they get the durability and wear up to where they need to be these would be a winner, but they are high priced average performing tires in my view.
Soft supple tires, nice ride quality, good traction. However, after 3 sets I have switched to another brand as I found they last on average 1200 miles and tend to easily puncture or cut.
Wish I could say otherwise, they are fastsmooth riding using the online Silca tire pressure calculator.
I have used the Pro ONE and the ONE. The Pro definitely seats better. I had some trouble with the ONE wanting to stay in the rim channel. I think you also get a more supple ride. Plus the Pro looks better than the ONE, and we all know if you look good you ride good. On my endurance bike I set up with a 30 mm in front and 28 mm in back.
Put a set on my Mavic tubeless rims more than 2000 miles ago and the front tire still has the bead on the tire. Back will need to be changes pretty soon. No flats, although a couple of punctures but the orange stuff held. Big improvement over the Mavic ones. A bit hard to get on, and have not had to try to add a tube while out on the road. Rolls smooth. Using 25's.
Felt very trepadacious on these tires. Got blown around very easily in crosswinds, at high speeds keeping control of my bike was a chore. Replaced them with the new (at the time) Continental 5000, all problems solved.
I bought a pair of these to replace a pair of worn Mavic Yksion Pro UST that came with the Mavic Cosmic Pro Carbon SL UST (bought from biketiresdirect.com).
First, let me say that the service from biketiresdirect has always been excellent, this negative review is limited to the tires.
I now have about 500 miles on these, and after having had to re-inflate them very frequently (as in before every ride, even in the space of 24hrs) I decided to look at one of them in particular (happens to be the rear one) that was basically turning flat overnight.
Using soapy water, I discovered that there are multiple tiny holes continuously bubbling on the side wall. Not near the rim, not close to the road-contact surface, but in the middle of the side wall. All line-up along a (great) circle.
I contacted b.t.d.com to ask for their opinion. They made suggestions and displayed their savvy in customer handling. But being an engineer, I convinced myself that this is a manufacturing problem. I submitted a warranty claim on the Schwalbe site - and I am now waiting for some kind of answer.
But the real problem started when I felt I could not trust these tires (at least the rear one) for a long ride. I tried to take it off - and was not able to do it - using normal technique and tools. And that is where I draw the line.
Perhaps I am not doing it right, have the wrong tools (after all there years of riding?). But the idea to ride for 50 miles and get stranded because I cannot fix a flat is a no-go.
Perhaps this last problem is an incompatibility between these wheels and these tires - don't know.
But I am looking elsewhere...
I recently installed these on my road bike. I had been running Maxxis Refuse 32C tires which had performed very well for me over 2 years of commuting in Seattle. When I put these tires on I was shocked at how much faster they rolled. I suppose the accurate description would be that they had less rolling resistance. Anyhow, they roll very fast. I haven't had enough time to judge the durability, but so far, so good.
I have been running these tires set up tubeless on my gravel winter trainer bike for a couple months now and have about 400 miles on them. Using the 30mm width, running 70-80 psi. No flats yet. They feel great on the road, stick well in the turns and perform great in the rain. My previous tubless road tires (Hutchinson) were very slick in the rain and I went down a few times. Not with these Schwalbe Pro ONEs, they stick very well in the wet and inspire confidence. The only downside is they are a bit spendy.
Have been through 3 sets of these. Wish they lasted longer and were more puncture resistant.
Good for 1200 miles
Puncture easily, had two that had to be replaced due to punctures that wouldn't stay sealed. Continued to leak sealant.
Trying another brand
After reading some reviews about how wonderful the new Schwalbe TLE tire is, I purchased a couple to try. I got them on my Enve 3.4 rims easily enough (but still not easy) but getting them to seal seemed impossible! These new 2020 tires have been advertised to seat by just using a regular pump-I couldn't get it done with numerous blasts from a Topeak Joe Blow mode pumpl! So I decided to go to the C brand tubeless tire since I'd had success with them on 2 other occasions and it sealed on the first try even without sealant added. Schwalbe has some work to do!
Purchased soon after they came out last fall, had high hopes based on my prior experiences with Schwalbe. Easiest mount I've done todate and nice ride for awhile. But I only got 1k miles out of the rear (12 that of most others I've used). So I'm not impressed for the $$$ and have gone back to the older models as a much better value.
I received two of these tires in the mail from Bike Tires Direct while on my lunch break at home. Always one to enjoy a challenge, I decided to mount one before heading back to work. I had already prepared the Roval CLX 40 rims with Stan's rim tape and Giant tubeless stems the night before. The wheels were clean. The tire took less than a minutes to put on the rims with my Crank Brothers tire tool. Without using my sealant and a regular floor pump, the tires pumped up completely with minimal effort. It has never been this smooth on my other five bike running tubeless. So I decided to mount the second to see if this was a fluke. Same story. Less than 5 minutes to mount two tires is great. The sealant will go in tonight. I am a long time user of the original Schwalbe Pro One tubeless on my older bike and they work great. At 200 pounds the balance between pinch flats (with tubes) and underover inflating is a challenge for a comfortable ride. Schwalbe has served me well in the past. Never noticed the puncture on my last 100K ride. I will update after I get a few hundred miles on the less than optimal roads where I live.
My first tubeless tires. I have relatively tight tire clearances, so chose these in large part based on reported measurements. I installed them on DT Swiss R460 wheels (18mm internal width) and they measure 27mm after some use.
They went on easily, though seating required a CO2 cartridge on each wheel (I don't have a compressor, but the CO2 worked like a charm). Once on, I deflated, added Stan's sealant, and reinflated with just a floor pump. So far, so good.
I inflated them to 90 psi and went for a first ride. Coming from 23mm 4000SII's (which measured over 26mm mounted), these felt wonderful. At 90 psi under my 200 pound frame, they felt soft and almost bouncy, but at 92 they've felt great. They provide a nice buffer on bad city pavement, but feel like they roll as well as the Continentals. I love the feel of these tires.
Unfortunately, the rear tire has suffered two small punctures that don't want to heal up entirely, both bleed small amounts of sealant between rides. They're fine for three hours on the road still, but it does worry me to see the weeping. I have purchased some of those worm-like plugs, but haven't tried them yet. And maybe I just need to try a different sealant. We'll see.
Since it's early spring, I also ride on a trainer. After the first puncture seemed to have healed, I rode indoors, moved the bike to another room, and head a hissing as the puncture re-opened. A quick spin solved it again temporarily, but that puncture and the other both still weep sealant between rides.
So, love the tires but wonder about their durability. I ride entirely on pavement, some of which is city streets with the inevitable sharp garbage near the curb. If they're going to cost me another $75 every few hundred miles, they,re going into the garbage.
Best tubeless tires i have used in the last 3 years . I had schwalbe pto one and they were great. This 2020 model takes ot one step further. Easy to mount on my brand new boyd disc 55mm. No need for compressor.
On the road they just stick to the pavement.
I cannot comment on wear since i still to put more miles on them.
I will update in a few months.
Road cycling, occasional short excursion on hard packed dirt or gravel.
Supple, yet is wearing well. Great traction in cornering on flats or in descent.
Sealed quickly after a puncture.
Very pleaded with this product, will purchase again.
