I used to get 2-3 punctures a month cycling to work about 22km each way. I weigh 108kg and get about 2000km out of a set of 4 seasons tires, I have been using them for about 18 months and have not had a puncture yet. My son turned me on to these tires, he weighs <65kg and raced competitively he used the 4 seasons tires for training and got 20,000km out of a set.
Other tires seem to collect glass which slowly works it's way through. These tires seem to spit it out.
Only recently installed these in 28mm after reading plenty on forums about the trend to wider tyres and slightly less than maximum tyre pressure. Found them really tight & difficult to fit onto the rims (broke one tyre lever & chipped another and unstuck some rim tape, hence 4 stars), so I don't know how I will go fixing a flat after dark in the driving rain...hopefully they live up to their bullet-proof reputation so I won't have to find out soon. Not a great fan of the brown hatching on side of tyre, but that's minor: my tyres end up getting pretty smashed on Sydney streets. After 500km have had no troubles: roll about as fast as Conti GP4000 in 25mm, and handle well in wet and dry.Report this review
My cyclocross bike has become my do everything bike. I commute on it, train on it, haul my son's trailer with it, I have even raced on it a couple of times. The GP 4season is the perfect companion tyre. In a 28mm size I can ride down a long dirt road without fearing a flat on the way, I don't get many punctures on the road despite living in a city covered in broken glass, and they are still grippy and roll OK. There may be faster, longer lasting and even more puncture resistant tyres out there, but I haven't found one that does all three things so well.Report this review
Works as a deluxe winter training tyre or a reliable race tyre.. itâ€™s harder to puncture than the racier Michelin Pro 3 or the Gatorskin and rolls a bit quicker than the latter. If you can swallow the price itâ€™s viable as a winter training tyre. For competition itâ€™s more reliable than racy.Report this review
