My Conti Gatorskin Ultra front tire is looking pretty ragged and I've heard good things about the Krylion tires so I thought I'd check them out. I'd convinced myself that I should go with the 700x25 size since I'm an all-weather San Francisco city commuter, but silly as it may be, they only come with a gray stripe, not the other nice colors that are available in the 700x23 size.
So help me out, I'll notice a little softer ride and slight increase in puncture resistance if I buy the 700x25 size, correct? I should probably just suck up the less desirable color.
More about my riding: I commute daily in the city, riding over lots of broken glass bits, potholes, and god knows what else. It doesn't rain much in SF but I also ride in the rain/wet in the winter.
There wasn't any useful info in the road cycling thread pertinent to the current tires.
Anyhow, like that thread I disliked the gp4000 I had and the krylions have been fine. They do seem to wear out quickly. I do believe that gatorskins have better puncture resistance and tend to run wider than krylions. My 700X23 krylions are narrower than the gatorskins of the same size.
Personally, for a commuter I think gatorskins are slightly better. I run krylions on my CF bike.
