Our review

Tough, grippy, quick and great value

Virtually the same as Halo’s standard Twin Rail Courier tyre, the Berlin edition has an added 2.5mm anti-puncture strip built into the carcass of the tyre under the main tread section.

The standard Twin Rail Courier has only a 1mm thick strip, but weighs in around 90g lighter than the Berlin (407g for our 700×24 test tyre, 464g for the 700×29).

This new version was developed at the request of couriers in the German capital who wanted greater puncture resistance. Having ridden in Berlin and knowing a few couriers out there, we can fully understand their request.

The result is successful too. The Courier Berlin rides just like a standard Twin Rail, with predictable cornering and a smooth and quick performance in a straight line, plus we found we didn’t notice the weight difference.

Wear rate is good too, but there’s also a hard compound version available should you wish to trade a little grip for a longer lifespan. Unlike the Twin Rail Couriers, the Berlin is only available in black.
