Schwalbe silento

Postby Jamesh » 27 Aug 2019, 10:47am

Before I hit the check out button anyone got any views in these? Seem like budget marathons at half the price.
Use winter riding on steel tourer and summer touring.

Cheers James

If I'm reading the catalogue right they are lighter than the Marathon Green Guard but higher rolling resistance and not as puncture resistant. Sort of middling all round really but at around half the price........

Some manufacturers seem to be abandoning this feature. Not many of us bottle-users left, I suppose.

The missus' Dawes Karakum had Silentos from new. First big tour on it, I ended up swapping them for Marathons half way through because of the number of p*nctures I had to fix.
