Road tubeless tires aren't cheap. These are reasonable with BTD's usual sale price in the low $60 range. They're light and they roll exceptionally well. I've been doing road tubeless since it became available and have used every Hutchinson road tubeless tire made. They're decent but I totally prefer these Schwalbes to any other road tubeless that I've used.
I run with about 2 oz of Stans in each tire and have put about 1400 miles on this set. We have a lot of rough pavement, glass and debris on many of the roads where I live, and so far, no major cuts or flats with reasonably careful riding and using a glove to brush the tires if I run through something suspect. I run them with 80 psi front and rear (I weigh about 160). The reduced pressure doesn't seem to make them roll any slower and they feel super plush.
I opted for the 700 x 25c size, and they're pretty fat. So fat, they just clear my fork and stays on a Cervelo R3. But the ride and the grip are outstanding, these things just roll as smooth as butter. The rear has started to wear a flat spot in the middle but it's not yet an issue. If I don't cut them, I can probably get 2000 miles on the rear before I'd think about changing it out. I love the extra volume of the 25c but because of the tight clearance on my frame and fork, I may go with the 23's next time.
I now have a bout 120 miles on my 25mm Pro Ones mounted tubeless on Bontrager Aeolus Pro 3 wheels on my 2018 Trek Emonda SL 6 Disc. This is a great combination and I am very happy. I plan on getting another set when these wear out.
Have used the pro one for years. Love the ride, grippy, can be difficult to inflate depending on rim type. These were on sale so purchased eight of them from BikeTiresDirecth. After a week had to replace one of the new tires on my wifes bike as a chunk of rubber tread was missing. Two weeks after that noticed a bubble on the tread,,thiught about calling BikeTiresDirect or Shwalbe but didnt (should have!). Wife was cleaning her bike today and noticed the tire I had replaced had ANOTHER BUBBLE ON THE tread and just replaced THAT tire. I am now convinced that first tire had tread separations as well and resulted in chunk of tread coming off!! THAT IS THREE TIRES I had to replace with none of the tire having more than 200 miles on them. Disappointed doesnt even begin to express my frustration! Does Schwalbe have that poor of quality control?
Is BikeTiresDirect purchasing seconds from Schwalbe and not letting us know?? Regardless it is DANGEROUS! BTW none of the tires were inflated over 100 psi.
I'm using the Schwalbe Pro One Tubeless Road Tire on my Trek Emonda SLR 8 with the stock Bontrager wheels. The tires are really good and I find them better for road racing than tubulars. I've done 2 road races with the tires on a course with very rough roads. I'm running 700 x 25 at 80-90 psi and they felt smooth and ideal for the rough road. I have no way of measuring this but the tires feel as though they have less rolling resistance over standard clinchers or tubulars. Since I have only one pair of tubeless wheels I'm training and racing on the tires and have about 1000 miles on them with little sign of wear. Good tires and my only suggestion is to use a compressor or high-pressure pump in initially mounting the tires. Great tire.
I've been using Schwalbe Pro Ones for a more than 2 years, and am happy with them. Be warned that on my older Shimano C24 rims, 25mm measure 28mm, and my current 23mm measure 25mm. They're no more difficult to mount than any road tubeless. With the right technique, I can roll them over the rim with no tools. On the road, they inspire confidence in the grip and handling. They're pretty rugged. They consistently last a season, and have self-healed a few times on typical, small punctures. I'll keep coming back to these.
When I decided to go road tubeless, I chose the highest rated tire from one of the most reputable brands. So far I'm impressed. I chose 25c mounted on HED Ardennes hoops. The tires mounted easily by hand, no levers needed. A few quick pumps with my floor pump and the bead started to pop into place. They do a fine job of maintaining pressure for days. I run them at around 80psi and they handle very well. The ride is slightly stiffer than the GP4000s I usually run, but overall very good. I may try lower pressure to see if that improves the ride without adversely effecting handling. In short, I feel the Pro One is a very good choice for anyone wishing to go the tubeless route.
Installed these to replace worn Hutchinson all weather tires I'd been using for the winter. They mounted easily and sealed immediately with a trace of soap solution wiped around the bead using a standard floor pump to inflate. Certainly the easiest tubeless tires I've installed. They also seem to give a more lively ride than the all-season tires I replaced.
Decided to go tubeless on my fixed gear. Made some new wheels with Surly track hubs, HSon The Hydra rims, and found these Schwalbes for a very good price. It was a good choice for those wheels, I haven't had any problems whatsoever in a couple months. Thanks for a good deal on nice tires BTD!
I purchased 3 new tires in the past 10 months. The front tire is still fine but I've gone through 2 rear tires in that time. Both have puncture so slighly but Stan's sealant couldn't seal tire. They wear vary easily. They do not fit Giant Carbon Tubeless rims well at all. Bike shop couldn't get my rear tire on with a compressor after I attempted to patch it. I am trying Zipp's now.
I put a set of these on my ultegra 6800 training wheels a few months back with some stans sealant. I weighed the set before and after and saw a 20-gram drop after install from gp4000. They ride amazing, corner very well, and roll very nice. I used some soap solution suds to install and a regular floor pump. These are great!
I have these tires on the road wheels for my Niner RLT-9 gravel bike. The Schwalbes mount up and seal securely and offer a smooth yet responsive ride. I don't have enough miles on them to comment on longevity, but have had zero flats or burps. They are a bit tighter and consequently more difficult to get on the rims compared to Maxxis tires, but that's OK for a tubeless tire. Just use some soap. Until Continental comes out with a tubeless Grand Prix 4000 S Mk II, these babies are my go to tire. Now I want to build up a set of wheels with Stans Grail rims for the Co-Mo tandem so we can go tubeless on the big bus. What can I say? Tubes are so yesterday.
These are my 3rd set of Tubeless tires and first set of Schwalbes. These tires went on really easy and seated easier than any other set I have used. I'm using a bit of Stans in them and so far, zero issues. These tires roll really well and after the online review I read, I'm glad I got them Fast rolling and the ride is excellent. Only issue.......weight. They are heavy and for sure are sluggish to accelerate. Other than that, great tire. I did rate the value a bit lower as while they are great tire, they are expensive.
I've lost count of how many Schwalbe Pro One tubeless tires I've ridden in the past five or so years. I've used Hutchinson, Panaracer, & several Specialized models. Pro One's feel great on the bike. They're relatively light, super grippy and very high volume. While expensive I think all tubeless road tires are pretty pricey and these seem like a better deal for their performance. Drawbacks 1) they wear fairly quickly-it's a tradeoff for the excellent handling. I live in Santa Cruz and the roads are pretty rough. I'd estimate they're good for close to 3,000 miles-I do ride them longer than many folks though and this is just a guess. 2) the newer version of this tire is a lot harder to mount at least on my HED Ardennes wheels. They need to be inflated with a tube to get the creases out, but even then one has to be patient. Overall clearly the best tubeless tire I've used.
I live and ride in the rural area of Central Coast Ca. I was running a heavy training tire (Armadillo's) as keeping moving is more important to me than lightweight and speed. I ventured out in the tubeless arena as a test. I went thru 4 Fusion 3's and achieved no more that 500 miles on all four combined. Disappointed to say the least. I was wondering if I erred in judgement by going tubeless. I researched everything I could about tubeless and found some good reviews on the Schwalbe One's. I thought what the heck, nothing to lose at this point. So far I have around 1,000 miles on these and realize my tubeless decision was worth it. They are mounted on custom built HED Belgium wheels (25mm). They stick well, ride very smooth and no adverse issues so far. I also operate a small bike tour company and cannot afford the hassle, embarrassment nor the down time while riding up and back to check on riders. I was so impressed I had a set of HED Belgium wheels (also 25mm) built for my wife and put the One's on her bike as well. Her result was an increase in her average speed by 3 mph. We are running 700 x 25's on both bikes. I would be willing to try another brand, but I will need some strong data and convincing to support a switch. Kudos to Schwalbe on this fine product. I will report back as the miles provide.
This was my first time on road tubeless tires, but not to tubeless tires in general. I run tubeless on both my mountain and gravel bikes. They mounted actually quite quickly with just a little shot from the air compressor. I used Orange brand sealant since I have had good luck with it, but have used Stans and Continental as well. I was using these in the 28mm size for my adventure road bike. My first impression was how low the rolling resistance was. The negative was that the ride seemed fairly harsh unless I lowered the pressure down to 60 PSI to get the comfortable. The other thing that I notice is they seemed to be lacking in the traction department. Cornering was not great, and wet roads are dicey compared to other tires that I have used. My main issue is the first puncture ended up ruining the tire. The sealant did not seal the tire, so I ended up putting a tube in to finish the rest of the 60 mile ride. I can not blame the tire for not sealing, probably more in issue with not enough sealant. That said, after patching the tire, and putting new sealant in, the tire started to separate where the hole was. Considering how much these cost, I am fairly disappointed. I have had similar size holes in other tires without any problems. The tires only had 500 miles on them. I ended up going back to Continental Grand Prix 4000 S II's with latex tubes. These ride as nice, if not better, have better traction, and can repaired easily from my past experience.
Nestled in the Enve SES 3.4 rim, designed for a 25mm tire, the rim perfectly supports the sidewall and the tire profile from rim edge to rim edge is nearly a perfectly circular arc. This tubeless tire rolls incredibly well, noticeably better than Campy Bora tubulars (my previous wheel). The handling is also different and better than anything I've previously experienced (in hundreds of thousands of miles or riding dating back to the 1970's). So is the sense that the tire remains 'grounded' and secure to the pavement as one leans into a turn or goes over bumps in the road. My interpretation for this sensation is that the sidewall support keeps the tire from flexing side-to-side as the bike leans, and the very circular profile of the tire results in a very smooth side-to-side transition of the tire. The sensation is really quite uncanny. My only caveat, of course, is that these comments apply to tire wheel. The light rim weight and its obvious stiffness, also contributes to the overall feel. It's an amazing, eye-opening combo.
This is my first set of Road Tubeless Tires, and so far I'm very happy.
The Schwalbe One's fit very snug on both wheelset's I've tried. Install went easy with soapy water, but definitely need to use tire levers. No problems inflating them with a Floor Pump, and didn't have any issues with leaks (still none either).
I run them about 30 psi lower then the clinchers on my race bike. The Low PSI give a nice supple ride, but still performs very well. No noticeable side wall flex (roll), and lower psi didn't seem to effect rolling resistance.. After 800 miles the tires still new brand new with zero leaks, flats or cuts.
Very Comfortable Ride, Rolls Great. Good One for training & long rural roads.
