I ordered this tire for my mountain bike to use on a home trainer. I looked at several different websites and brands, and while deciding, called Bike Tires Direct customer service. They recommended this tire and another road one, telling me in detail the benefits of both while being very friendly and helpful. I bought the tire shortly after hanging up, received it in the mail promptly, and it works great! It is the perfect tire and I'm glad I had someone to steer me in the right direction, as well as give a very personal experience to online shopping. Highly recommend the tire, the website, and the people!
I've ridden Conti GP5000TLs and Schwalbe Pro One TLE too (when mounting Conti was too tough). I was very hopefully with the Schwalbe One TLE = more protection than Pro One TLE yet still with better than average performance. I was using it mainly as a Training tire during the FL winter. The Performance has been good but the puncture protection has been a disappointment. I'll acknowledge that I'm surrounded by commercial roads that are "landmines" for bike tires no matter how vigilant I am trying to avoid debris while not being killed by vehicles. Intersections & Bike lanes (never swept) are the garbage cans for everything imaginable. I had a small front puncture that sealed itself, fatal rear sidewall cut on first ride on a different set and then a fatal rear center line cut on the 1st set. That was all within an expensive six week puncture vortex that I thought was never going to end.
Also note - depending on your Rim - the bead is VERY difficult to break once set. It has a softer & elastic type bead that once in place is EXTREMELY difficult to break unless you have gorilla strength in your hands. I had to cut the 2nd fatal tire off the rim. Also note - forcing a tubeless tire (designed to be a tighter fit than a clincher) onto a rim runs the risk of creating a Tire wobble. Don't ask me how I know. No plans to buy anymore once current ones wear out.
To be honest I was looking for a new pair of GP5000s to wrap my new hoops in, but they were very hard to find for some reason, so I took a chance with these Schwalbe Pro ONEs. There are a lot of similarities to the aformentioned tire, and that's a good thing. These roll fast, and I feel quite confident in corners. I think the comfort is decent for a road tire, though I am running the tubeless 28mm wide version on a more compliant gravel rig, so take that as you will. I will say that it was a bit of a chore to get them mounted, but that's to be expected with a TL road tire. All in all I think these are a competent road tire worthy as a substitute to the fabled GP5000s, and I'm very pleased.
I run these on a KHS lightweight XC Soffttail MTB. They're on Mavic Crossride rims. These are entry level rims for XC offroad but great for street use. At 30psi they ride very smooth and have great traction. Blow them up to 50psi and they roll fast. They stick well on asphalt wet or dry, but can get sketchy on concrete with sand on it. I actually got rid of my knobby wheelset altogether and just use the bike of r street riding. I also added a 48t chainring because I could out run the MTB gearing easily.
