Our review

An outstanding combo of speed and grip makes these some of our favourite tubs

These tyres came fitted to the Zipp wheels we tested recently, but we liked them so much we wanted to review them on their own. The barely treaded surface rolls superbly with fluidity and easy speed.

The Curve Control System profile means they drop into corners with real conviction too, so it’s lucky that the tri compound sticks them like glue, even in the worst winter conditions.

In fact, the more we’ve ridden them, the more fearless we’ve become – even the slips we’ve had have been well-communicated and saveable.

As with most tubs, they really come into their own on rougher roads. Here they suck out more sting and rattle than clincher tyres to smooth out your cadence and cruising speed.

At 260g they’re heavier than competition like Conti’s Competition tubs, and they’re not cheap. But long-term wear feedback and puncture-proofing from the PRS barrier layer suggests they’re a luxury, high-velocity investment worth making.
