"have used this tyre for 3500 miles, only one puncture (large nail) managed to get through the rear tyre.
easy to get on and off the rims. definitely the choice for carrying large loads to spread the weight out evenly."
Pros: Durable, Great Value, High Quality, Good Fit

Are these tyres OK for loose material cycle path use?

Hi,

Part of my commute is along 6 miles of a dissused and converted railway line and I feel my current MTB tyres are a little overkill.

Would these be OK for regular use on medium to fine gravel track?

Thanks
most definitely, have used these for 200 miles on gravel roads and Pave' sections during 3500 mile tour.
