Schwalbe Tryker

Just a heads up
I was looking for a new set of tyres for next year. Anyway I came across these. :)

Schwalbe Tryker tyres at SJS Cycles £22

Good fast tyres with lots of grip and reasonable puncture protection.
But I found that they tend to get cut up a lot if you cycle anywhere with glass/fit shards.
Not sure if I'll get them or Racers as I cannot get Supremes anymore for the front of my trike.
I'll get a 50-406 BA for the back, more rubber to wear off before getting down to the carcass.

+1, also lost two with damaged sidewalls (don't go cycling in loose shingle :? ). Prefer Marathon Racers (at least the older ones with a folding bead) or BAs in 406. Schwalbe do like to fiddle with the compounds though, so difficult to be too pedantic.
BTW, if you are looking for speed then try some of these ;)

As I don't tend to cycle with flint... I really like them.

I recall that they gave me a full mph over the M Racers I had previously, and lasted longer, and stopped/cornered better...

But the sidewalls are somewhat fragile, by design.
A shortcut has to be a challenge, otherwise it would just be the way. No situation is so dire that panic cannot make it worse.
There are two kinds of people in this world: those can extrapolate from incomplete data.

I like trykers. Good handling characteristics.
