road tire recommendation for Giant Escape

My sister bought a Giant Escape flat bar hybrid. Took delivery in late 2013 after waiting for it. I'm a road bike rider on 25c tires. I would like to recommend a narrower, lighter tire for her to try at some point than what came stock. Nothing wrong with her stock tires but I'm sure she could use a thinner, lighter tire if she wished. Any recommendations ?

700x32 Panaracer Pasela. This tire doesn't have puncture protection, but rolls fast and is really comfortable. If puncture protection is desirable, get the Pasela TG (supposedly, some performance will drop).

I'm pretty happy with 23c Michelin Pro Race 3 Tires, light and smooth and fast. Just put the air pressure at 80-85pds and it should be fairly comfortable.

I put these on both my wife's and mine last year on our Escape RX 0's and again these year on our new Escape RX Composites. I get between 3 and 4k miles out of the backs and more on the fronts. These are a little $$ but what a difference. So far in the two years we have been running these tires no flats.... That's saying something as last year we did a little over 8 K miles each.

Vittoria Rubino. Great rolling tire and excellent puncture protection.

get the Pasela TG
or another light slick tread tire made by another brand .. tour guard is a Kevlar tread belt/

there are other puncture protection schemes some weigh more .

Kevlar vs Steel Bead wires also makes lighter weight tires ..


back to the brand popularity contest
