Panaracer Race A EVO3 Tubeless vs Schwalbe Pro One

I currently have a pair of schwalbe pro one and have been running them tubeless but lately been having issues with punctures and flats on my ****ty sonoma county roads.
Love the pro ones but am looking for some more puncture protection as they have almost none. Anyone have any experience with the panaracers mentioned in the subject? I know they are fairly new.

BTW I run sealant as well...

Thanks

I'm waiting for the cadre of Schwalbe defenders to come in and sing the praises of the Pro One, which is supposed to be the best tire in all of ever. EVER.

The Race EVO 3 sounds a whole lot like Panaracer's version of the One, all about lightweight and speed, with virtually nothing in the way of flat protection (other than a "lightweight woven belt" with no mention of how much of the tire the belt actually covers, or what it's made of) so based on that alone, I would expect comparable performance and durability to the Schwalbe.

I'd recommend Maxxis ReFuse TR (~2000 miles without so much as a loss of pressure,) but they only come in 32 and 40 wide, so they won't fit a lot of road frames. If you can fit them, they're tremendous-- bead-to-bead Kevlar belt.

Yea I'm curious though as the panaracer is a fair amount heavier than the schwalbe so hoping it's got a little more to it to help with punctures. I have some on order should be here tomorrow so I can compare in person.

Also looking at the Hutchinson intensive 2 tubeless if these panaracers aren't what I'm looking for.

I wish continental just made a tubeless gatorskin lol

OP: Maybe just use the One Tubeless (hereafter, O1). I, too, have had a bit of hassle with the Pro One (P1) and puncture, the likes of which I never experienced through 3 sets of O1s.

Given that experience, I think your guess regarding the extra weight of the Race A tubeless may be correct; a thicker tread should not only resist cuts and punctures better, but should self-heal better in the case of puncture, aiding sealant action. If the Race A has a butyl lining, that may help those things as well, but I don't know.

Anyway, the O1 is a great tire, and may be the ticket for you given you're willing to accept extra weight in exchange for damage resistance.
