    Product feature
    1. How to measure tyre wear
      To measure the wear on your tyres and to know when they need replacing, you need to inspect the tread. The tread comes into direct contact with the terrain you are cycling on and therefore determines your tyre's performance. A tyre needs to be changed when the centre knobs are worn down to the same height as the side knobs.
    2. How to remove a tyre
      To remove your tyre, first deflate the inner tube until no more air comes out. Once deflated, use a tyre lever to remove the tyre from the rim.
    3. How to put your tyre back on
      To put the tyre back on, place one side of the tyre into the bottom of the rim. Next, inflate your inner tube to approximately 30% before putting it into the tyre (inflating it beforehand reduces the risk of pinching the inner tube). Then, place the other side of the tyre into the rim, starting on the side opposite the valve. Before inflating the inner tube all the way, check to make sure it isn't pinched between the tyre and the rim.
    4. How to inflate your tyre correctly
      Inflate your tyre carefully. The recommended pressure is indicated on the side of your tyre as well as on its product sheet (available online). Before each outing, make sure that your tyres are at the correct pressure for your ride.
    5. Tip from the pros
      When inflating your tyre, be sure to inflate it to the correct pressure for the terrain you will be riding on and especially the weather conditions. When riding in rainy weather, lower the tyre pressure to increase the tyre's traction. On the other hand, when riding in dry weather, you can increase the pressure for better performance.

    • Quality product at a bargain price.

      Great grip off road, and comfortable on road.
    • A cheap tyre, but is it hardy enough?

      I'd decided to get back to cycling again and pulled out my 18 year old bike. It was sadly in need of a fair bit of TLC. So, I replaced the brake units, brake and gear cables and then for good measure decided to change the tyres. The new ones are quite lightweight and have a spread out tread, which is supposed to kick off the mud easily. However, I've now had two punctures while riding in the forest (both on the rear). I figured that after the first outing this was just bad luck, but one of these punctures was caused by a piece of branch. The offending shard was still stuck in the carcass and has left a noticeable mark where it penetrated. The fact that I got another puncture (different inner tube) two rides later made me start to wonder if they were not robust enough.

      Anyway, the tyres feel good when on the road and for solid off road they seem pretty quick. I haven't really had a chance to test them in mud, but where I've come across some they seem to grip OK. The only surface they have a problem with is loose gravel - particularly when going up hill when standing on the pedals and coming downhill under braking.

      All in all, I'm not about to change the tyres and I'm reasonably happy with them - particularly at this price.
    • good for general use

      don't think it would stand up to really rough abuse but ok for general use, side walls feels too soft ??
      cheap, round ??
      feels flimsy
    • great in the mud

      Used these last winter andd for one very very wet muddy race. Soft compound grips well and sheds mud well.
      Not very fast roling in good conditions but very comfortable.
      Only downside is they are HEAVY.
