I had a pair of the original One clincher. I am a big guy (103kg) yet still got about 2000 miles out of the tires. One tire ended up with a small section of tread missing, but the tire never flatted. I took them off at that point though one tire has a lot of tread left. No flats in 2000 miles. I then put the newer One (with tread) on. Just as good as the original tires. No flats thus far in ~500 miles. I have Conti GP 4000S II on my other bike. They seem very similar in ride comfort, grip and speed as my Ones. Both are outstanding tires.Report this review
I decided to gone the One a go as my favourite Schwalbe Ultremo ZXEvo's are getting hard to find. This & the fact that Probikekit had the ONE's on a fantastic deal. After agonising over whether to make a purchase due to the lack of info about the make & model of the tyres in the sale I decided to give them a whirl. I have not been disappointed, the ONE's have more than lived up to my expectations & Schwalbe's marketing guff. They roll amazingly well, appear at this early stage to be puncture resistant & have amazing grip in the dry (due to fab current weather conditions in the UK not wet tested yet). The reason for only 4 stars - Blame the marketing types at Schwalbe for that. Oh & also the very limited info actually on the tyre. Every supplier site you visit appear to do a straight lift from the Schwalbe site which is rubbish. Apart from gushing about their new tyre & the manufacturing process, there's nothing to assist you nor direct you to the model you're looking for. It was only by accident on a thread that I found out that there's a PRO & an EVO model. There's nothing to confirm on the tyres I received either, nor is there any info regarding which model has puncture protection or what type if indeed both have as I suspect the EVO has the superior type. Also there's no info on my tyres as to the compound types & how many are used i.e. Racestar or Pacestar, 2 or 3 on both models or not? The generic info on the Schwalbe site appears to cover all models but pins nothing down to specific models! Very, very frustrating! I can only assume I have purchased the PRO model but given a clear choice I would've punched the EVO simply because it's the top model. My ULTREMO EVO's are very clear in theis regard with the tyres being clearly marked. So, all in all Great tyres but Schwalbe, sack your marketing team & replace them with cyclists who care about this stuff.Report this review
I have been racing and riding by bike over 35 years. I bough a new wheelset and my bike shop tech Installed the schwalbe one on it. For my surprise I had hundreds... thousands of miles on the tyres With out a single flat. Best tyres everReport this review
Whilst these look nice & are pretty fast, they're best avoided. 5 rides thus far and the back tyre has a massive cut in it with 3 punctures to boot. Not really fit for purpose!Report this review
I appreciate your responding for missing my ordered item.Report this review
Probikekit has been my go to place for a while now...great products, great prices and reasonable delivery even to the US. I love Schwalbe tires and can't find as many places that have them in the US.Report this review
Riden 300 Klm so all good no punctures or cuts so far. Fast rolling tyre with good grip in both wet and dry.Report this review
I like these tyres. I am using the 25mm inflated to 85psi. I am 85kg. The ride is so nice on New Zealand's course chip roads. Adding a latex tube takes it one step further. Any more psi and I don't go any faster! I have warn out a set of these with no punctures which is excellent. Usually I will get one or two by the time a tyre is near the canvas. It is probably a bit of luck as well. Longevity seemed average, which again is most acceptable as they are more a race tyre than for training. The only point against them would be weight. After more than 2 decades of cycling, the Continental Supersonics are still the fastest.
I have 300 miles on these tires and still don't like them. The front wheel doesn't want to track in a straight line at speeds over 20mph. Feels like a high profile rim in across wind. I have always had Conti or Michelin but wanted to try something different. Should have known if it not broken don't fix it.Report this review
