Schwalbe Pro One Tubeless Easy

Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

Schwalbe Pro One Tubeless Easy

I decided to order a pair in 32mm with the transparent sidewalls to have on hand for when my current GP5000TL tires are worn out. I probably should not have opened the deluxe, fancy, two-part , red and black box on these bad boys. They look really sharp! I know not everyone cares for transparent sidewalls, but I'm a fan.

Problem is I've only got about 3500 miles on my current tires! I'm not sure I can wait for another 1500 miles on the Continentals. I've got a feeling these will get installed some time this weekend.

They're good tires, but I'd resist the urge and put 'em on after you've gotten your miles out of the Contis.

I want to give these a shot! What color are the sidewalls? I've seen pictures that make them look very brown....are they more tan in person?

They are fairly dark brown. Definitely not tan.

Ive used them a few times (in 25mm), really liked the quality of ride.

it constantly amazes me the variation in mileage we all get. My 5000TLs have definitely outlasted most of my other tires. Probably average 2500-3000 miles on the rear at most.

our roads here are basically flat and normally pretty good shape, we have great cycling infrastructure. Must be the power and torque Im continuously laying down lol!

Excellent tires... CAN confirm

I have 700x25 all black version on my road bike. I put them on two years ago this month, and I have about 2000 miles on them. They show very little wear!

They are pretty tough and puncture resistant, though this isnt a top priority since the tubeless sealant takes care of things. They give a nice ride on a variety of surfaces and provide plenty of confidence during fast descents. They were fairly easy to set up, and they look good. Whats not to like?

It sounds like you just need a new, extra set of wheels.

I like the way you're thinking but the Roval Terra CLX I'm running now are pretty schweet.

Funny I have an all black Roubaix too. I'm thinking about ordering another pair it as well. I'll try these first.

I could wait no longer. I installed the Pro Ones Monday night. Only have about 70 miles on them, but they feel very much like the GP5000TL in 32mm. It's subjective, but I think I feel slightly more road buzz with the Schwalbes. They turn better too, but that's probably because the old tires got kind of squared off. Since there was a question about the color, I thought I'd post a pic. The bike in the back is my wife's Fuji city bike with tan wall tires. I think both tires look a bit darker in person.

Your earlier post inspired me to try some....they just arrived today and I hope to have them mounted soon and ready for a big ride this weekend. I agree the color looks a bit darker in person, almost a caramel color rather than tan. Still looks good to me!!

Yes yes, nice lookin' tires. They look great on a black bike.

But... how do you pronounce "Schwalbe"? Is this one syllable or two? Is the "W" supposed to sound like "V"?

You can go here https://www.schwalbe.com/pumped/en to listen to a Schwalbe podcast where the German interviewer says the name in the first lines of each of the English podcasts. Sounds like "SHVAI-bah". The 'L' is almost non-existent and the final vowel sound on the 'be' is barely there as well.

I've got about 300 miles on these tires and so far so good. They seem very, very similar to the GP5000TL I've been running with one exception. They seal better. Much better. These lose maybe 2-3 PSI after a ride and then sitting for 24 hours. The Continentals would lose 2-3 times as much air. No a big deal, but I find it interesting.

Great to know!! I finally got mine on today by hand (yay!) and hope to get some rides in very soon. They blow up slightly smaller on my 23mm internal rims (32.5mm vs GP5000 TL @ almost 34mm).

They're a light caramel which I think goes perfectly with my Roubaix......

Looks nice! I'll probably throw a pair on my Roubaix. Or wait for some GP5000S TR whenever they start shipping.

I will likely try these next. I ditched the Conti GP5KTLs after a second sidewall slash incident. I'm currently running the skinwall Pirelli P Zero Race TLRs, but find the ride noticeably harsher than the Contis, and it bothers me. I also don't love the darker brown sidewall of the Ps.

I have the tubeless 28mm version installed now. Not sure how they are in the wet, but in dry they grip quite well. That being said rear didn't last even a season. That with riding outside only on weekends. During weekday I am on a trainer. Also 28mm version is been back ordered since August. When new Conti TR come out will give them a shot.

What's a season? I got ~2500 miles out of my rear POEAs, and I'm not terribly easy on tires.

I found on the Pirelli's TLR's, I needed to lower the pressure around 5 lbs and they have been golden since.

Just an update. I'm about to hit 2,000 miles on these tires. I did have to add sealant a couple of weeks ago, but the tires appear to have many miles left in them. And I've had no ride-stopping punctures, but many that have sealed on the fly judging by the latex spray on my seat stays. I've been riding them at 55F/65R PSI. They seem to roll very nicely. Hopefully my outdoor miles will get back to normal starting this month and by summer I'll have a good mileage estimate for the tires for those who might be interested.

It's about time to replace the tires on my Roubaix. I'll be ordering another pair of these instead of the GP5000TL.

My new pair of Pro One TLE should arrive today; I can't wait to install them! Been waiting 4 months for them...

My previous pair lasted 4000kms. Front one is still good for roughly another 1000kms so I am keeping it as a spare, but the rear one is completely shot.
