For race-like performance, we recommend the Michelin Jet Cyclocross tires. Light and grippy, we just love their gummy rubber that offers perfect adherence on paved roads and off road. At colder temperatures, the adherence is still excellent. If your routes are comprised of paved roads and dirt bike trails, and you’re not set off by the special needs of high performance tires, we recommend the Michelin Jet Cyclocross.
We also recommend a selection of some of the best German made bike tires that offer great adherence and puncture resistance for daily commuting. The Kojak are great slicks with all the grippiness you need on paved roads, making it the ideal candidate for taking tight corners on city streets. The Marathon Supreme is one of highest quality tires to be found, known for its puncture resistance and grip. It’s not surprising that this tire has its legions of fans. We also like Sammy Slick, an easy rolling tire that corners safely and has Schwalbe’s unique puncture protection. For cycling on icy roads, we highly recommend the studded Marathon Winter from Schwalbe, with its extremely wear resistant tungsten carbide core spikes.
