Schwalbe Pro ONE TLE 700c Road Tire (HS493)

1st time tubeless and very happy

Everything for a bike is expensive so that is why I gave it 4 stars. However, I have been very happy. I am a 220 pound cyclist that rides 3000 miles per year at an average of 18-19 MPH solo. I have been very happy with my choice going tubeless. I currently have 1431 miles on this set of tires (25 mm width). I previously have run Conti 5000 with tubes. I ran the same brand for 5 years. I quickly realized the benefits of tubeless. I also realized that the Pro One tires are very reliable and quick. These are also the longest lasting tires I have ever owned. I did upgrade to a wider rim width and that may have made a difference in wear. Either way I really like these and will be replacing the rear tire in a month or so.

Best All-Road Touring Tire

I try to buy these on sale or with some discount if possible. They are kinda spendy, that would be the only negative I can think of. But that's not BTD's fault. Schwalbe tires in general are spendy. I got them on a discount with my Gold membership + I had some points to use. Anyway, I have a set of these on our Tandem, which is a 1993 Miyata DupliCross MTB Tandem that I turned into a touring bike.

I had to replace the rear tire as the bead broke in one spot. I have no idea how that happened. We are a heavy team, but nowhere near the max rated weight of the tires. It was several years old, so it could have just been time. The industry recommends replacing bicycle tires after 7 years.

We love these tires. They roll well and are great on rough surfaces and gravel and deal well with our team and our gear. I've looked at a LOT of touring tires and I can't imagine a better one for our use case.

Pretty much indestructible

I've used these on a tour, expecting to get 10,000 miles out of them - they lasted through the tour (Pennsylvania to Alaska and back) and the entire following year to 30,000 miles and still have some tread left! In those 30,000 miles I've only gotten 2 flats. One was a pinch flat, I hit a pot hole at high speed and pinched the tube between the tire and the rim. The other was caused by somehow getting a staple in the sidewall of the tire. No punctures through the tread at all. Those tires got me through every type of terrain imaginable: pavement, chip-seal, gravel, dirt, mud, and even some not-too-technical singletrack mountain bike trails.

These are definitely not the lightest, fastest rolling, or must supple tire. I wouldn't use them for a race, but for a tour or commuting they are an absolute must from the standpoint of durability and longevity. I'm leaving on another tour soon and will absolutely use a new set of the same tire.

Side note: Schwalbe recommends inflating to 45-70psi, I only run them at 30psi for a much cushier ride on uneven surfaces (size 700x47). This was most likely a contributing cause to the previously mentioned pinch flat, but perhaps also a reason why I've been able to get such extremely high mileage out of them.

Schwalbe Aerothan 700c Tube

not for everybody but I will buy again

I am using aerothan tubes 2 ways. The best gain is for the emergency tube on my mountain bike and I just put a rock through my front tire and had to use tube to get out of the woods. It is half the weight and 1/4 the size of carrying a 2.5 inch black tube and this matters. Well worth the $28 where I have carried it for 8 months. The valve cores seem to be shipped loose where I took warning from these reviews. . For my winter road bike use I did super glue the core in per reviews and have used one on front across rough roads for 400 miles. So far I like it inside a new mich power cup for an upgraded plush light ride. I have ran latex several times and always get failures near the stem short of 1000 miles. Tighten the valve cores on aerothan and these may be the best tube available.
