champions, I’ve been out of the road riding game for a long time, but as always, I’m very interested in tyres. I’ve picked up a couple of bikes recently and put gp 4000 2s on one and am super happy with the grip they have, and they feel quiet and fast. I’m well aware that any road tire would feel like this to me, though, since all i’ve been riding is much wider and knobbier. So, I’m keen for a new pair for the other roadie now. It currently has duremo/duremo plus on board and theyre both around 340g… the gps are 220 or so and I like the sound of that weight loss beyond the rim.
My question - At $50 a tire, is anything blowing the GPs out of the water for a tire that will be ridden once or twice a week at as fast as I possible can go (which was about 21kph the other day, but should improve). Rims are old school, not wide boyz. I value grip, speed and pucture protection about equally
