I'm going to buy slicks to my 26" MTB to get really low rolling resistance since daily commuting takes too long time and too much effort. And I got help here with the size I can use and I'm going to go for 26x1.5 or 26x1.75 and I'm looking on Schwalbe tyres and I found some nice tyres which is lightweight, low rollingresistance and all that what I'm looking for. But there's no word about wetgrip.
I won't ride in the woods with slicktyre, but maybe a shortcut over a lawn (grass) and over gravel on a short distance (when I have to and can't avoid it). And I don't want to crash, don't want to feel I'm riding on ice. I have 26x2.1 front and 26x1.9 back now and never experienced problems.
I need advice now which is more related to the tyre itself. Okay, Of course slick isn't as good as "offroad" so I don't expect supergrip, but I still want a smooth ride and don't risk breaking arm and leg. ;-)
I'm looking at these:
Continental City Ride http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/M...?ModelID=18836 - Continental City Contact Reflex http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/R...?ModelID=18824 - Schwalbe Marathon Racer http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/M...?ModelID=24796 - Schwalbe Marathon Plus http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/M...?ModelID=24542 - Schwalbe Road Cruiser http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/M...?ModelID=24626 - Schwalbe Speed Cruiser http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/M...?ModelID=24625
Other tyres may work as long as the store is located within EU.
