Right these are 35mm folding speed cyclocross tyres. I've been running these on the CX for a few months and they are brilliant. Typically for hard/ Rocky terrain but I've been through really muddy conditions and they cope well. I have a 50/50 on and off road commute and these have been much better than their knobbly counterparts.

Next- it is possible to get these for £21.58 if you are a BC member. I went into Halfords they price matched them at £11.99 then took off the BC 10% discount. Even if you are not a member it's a great way to swerve the postage.

These won't be for everyone but I'm really impressed with these and when I originally got them they were over £40 a pair. Hope this helps someone.

Spec - A superlight and fast rolling Cyclocross and Gravel bike tyre from Continental. Folding bead, checkerboard centre tread and grippy edge blocks combine to make a superfast tyre ideal for dry conditions and crossing over onto the road.

Nice price, not entirely sure when I could get the best use for these, trying to think when in the UK it is dry enough and hard pack enough off road road to take advantage of them. Good buy though.

Like I say not for everyone. Basically my commute is off and on road and it was killing my knobbly tyres to the point of going through a pair each month. 3 months on these have performed really well and been great in the mud if you don't mind a lil bit of slip and slide!
I have some of these on my hybrid for riding around the cycle paths. They are a nice supple tyre with a reasonable amount of grip if it's not too wet or muddy. Think I paid about £15 a piece. Good price, if not an amazing deal. Heat added. They are pretty fast too

Yeah, I have some small block 8s, any mud and they were fun but dangerous, and I never really got to use them on dry terrain (as it always seems to be pissing it down). I use something nobbier on my CX but it does get raced in the thick and loose mud. On my commuter I have more of a slick with a very very small file tread, but they are wide and would actually be just about ok on hard pack.

I would be tempted to buy them, but have a shed full of tyres 🙄

Somewhere like Swinley forest these would be perfect most of the year.
Just go for Landcruisers
