The Land Cruiser is a Kevlar Guard Puncture Protected trekking tyre, ideal for cruising. The rolling tread is superb on pavements, yet it's diamond textured side lugs afford plenty of grip on light loose terrain.

"I bought these as my new bike came with a pair of nobbly's that would have been suited to the softest of off road, my main mileage being road, trail, track etc, so after reading the reviews I opted for a pair of Land Cruisers.
The manufacturers description is acurate, they are relatively low in the rolling resistant stakes and are well made, also being perfect for my needs, the only down side is fitting them. They are a swine to put on, extremely tight, so if you have plastic or ABS tyre levers, go and buy some metal ones 'cause you will need them, especially if you puncture at the side of the road."
Pros: Great Value, Attractive, Rugged, High Quality
Cons: Poor Fit

"This was the second Smart LED light set I have bought and it is an even better buy than the 1st The front light paired with its twin provide enough light to see down non lit tracks. It is easy to fit and swap it to other bikes. The back light is extrenely bright and the batteries go on forever. Definitely a good buy for the money."
Pros: Adjustable, Durable, Great Value, Rugged, Versatile
