EGP 299.00 Décathlon
Good grip, fast rolling and comfortable. Only negative is the weight.
About two and a half years ago I decided to chuck a couple of 45s on my hybrid to give me a bit more comfort on what is left of the road surface in the U.K. I do cycle a lot of miles and it was normal for me to get at least two puncture a month with my old 35s, I did not realise it at the time of purchase but the tire from decathlon had puncture protect and to my disbelief I was not getting any more punctures after fitting them. I have had zero punctures for two and a half years !!! I always thought this "puncture resistance" marketing was a load of rubbish but no it actually works and I would thoroughly recommend anyone to get these puncture protect tires as they are awesome. Unfortunately Decathlon don't seem to sell the 45s with the big grip on them any more and I ended up buying in error the tire that I'm leaving the review for. This particular tire has about as much grip as a space hopper and I have to run it low to get any grip at all which causes a bit of drag however fully inflated the bike does roll well, I would advise any one who needs the grip to purchase the 42s which on this occasion I wish I has done.
Just a side note when inspecting my old 45s I found bits of glass and thorns dug into the tire and I could literally pick them out as they has got stuck in the tread of the tire and just couldn't get any further Its brilliant !
