Low rolling resistance?
I am new at all this.
What tire would you recommend? Thanks..
That depends.... tires are somewhat personal ..lol There are peeps loving their latest set and feel that theirs are the fastest and and and and
and than there is the misconception that higher pressure equals lesser rolling resistance.... :-)
which in some cases is right , but not in every case either....
Than throw in some "tests" from self exclaimed experts ....
weigh in the marketing hype from the manufacturer ...
for example a Schwalbe Ultremo with his ultra narrow width, super light, with 160 lbs pressure, feels like a rocket.... A Schwalbe Big Apple feels fast but also very comfortable ...
Depending on the use ... you will tire earlier on the Race tire, than the Comfy Apple.... endurance over speed...
Its confusing to say the least.....
