closest clincher to the feel of tubulars5
Awesome looks, grip and feel. I have found the durability ok in the 6 months I have been riding them - the odd small nick but not worn out and certainly more robust than my old michelin pro race 3's. I don't understand reviews that criticise the durability, these are designed as race tyres so built for speed not for training. That said, I have been quietly pleased with the results.
They give a buttery smooth ride and seem to have endless grip, even pretty good in the wet.
So, in summary - the fastest, smoothest clincher tyre I have used, but not cheap if you want to use them for every day riding.
good value for money3
Not the greatest tyres available, but some of the best looking.Report this review
Very durable, very good on rough roads including roads under major repair. In the wet found schwalbe zx less grippy than my Pro3's on wet roads here in NZ. Some roads here are a chip/seal surface. Guess it's a comprise between durability, rubber compound and performance needs to be considered or maybe try the aqua version or road conditions.Report this review
A definite improvement on Ultremo R5
I have been using these tyres since they first came out, having been a big fan of the Ultremo "R". Although they are marginally heavier than the "R" I have found that the puncture resistance seems significantly better. This could be down to luck but had a couple of "R"s go on the side walls and after a couple of thousand on these only 1 puncture. They can be inflated to a high pressure and roll real fast.
I would definitely recommend these tyres and at this price are a steal.
Quick and conï¬�dent with a supple feel, decent longevity and loads of options5
Schwalbeâ€™s Ultremo tyres have always been top performers but the HD version finally delivers the survivability needed to make them a winning all-rounder.
The ZX HD version adds more shoulder rubber over an ultra high density protective layer. Initial longevity signs are great with no tearing, shedding or deep cuts.
The RaceStar Triple Compound feels great, too. Itâ€™s fast on the road, a feature thatâ€™s backed up on the rollers, yet still reliable through turns in wet or dry and clean or dirty conditions.
The 23mm is buoyant for back road comfort but light enough for sprints. The coloured tyres are slightly more slippery
Really fast tyres !4
Extreme fast , good grip , many color choices , reasonable price for a high end tyre . Just need to wait to see if they can last long as the cracking problem have been improved.Report this review
Great race tyre4
These are an excellent race tyre with that little bit of extra durability over the R1. Grip is very good in the wet and awesome in dry conditions, easy to mount on several different wheels and the look of the white stripe version is stunning. Perhaps not quite as tough as a GP4000S but they do seem to roll extremely well. A highly recommended race tyre.Report this review
A good all round road tyre4
I got 2 punctures in my rear wheel in the first 1500km but have had a further 2000 without incident.
A good cornering tyre and because of the high pressure capability they can roll very fast and easy too!
They seem to be wearing well too.
sure footed tyre however for racing only or you will be disappointed with wear. Rear tyre was cut up beyond use after 800km , front still on at 1400km but not long to goReport this review
good and fast4
