The Ultra Sport II offers everything you need performance wise for racing. Reliable puncture protection from the robust 3/180 TPI design, good grip and a long tread life from the silica-based compound.

" Does the job. No punctures yet after 300km on dodgy winter roads. Feels grippy and having moved up to 25mm from 23mm is noticeably more comfortable with no reduction in speed as far as I can tell. Will buy again as at the price not worried if they turn out not to be overly durable. "
Pros: Great Value, Comfortable, High Quality, Rugged, Good Fit

A 45mm wide version of the Swan, the Swan road features the same unique fitting system, but is designed to blend better aesthetically with the narrower tyres on road bikes and sports hybrids.

" Easy to install and has decent adjustability through an interesting securing mechanism. Has kept the spray of my back all winter in Glasgow and have had nothing to complain about. Plastic is good quality and would take a lot of force to break. Looks aren't really an issue with a mudguard but it looks elegant enough on the bike. "
Pros: Durable, Attractive, High Quality, Rugged, Adjustable, Lightweight, Good Fit

" Great for really cold days and the face cover can be pulled below the chin easily for when the temperature rises on climbs etc.
Would be improved with a panel of different material around the mouth to reduce condensation from breath but when this happen as mentioned before it can be pulled easily over the chin to expose the face.
Simple balaclava does the job and is thin enough to easily fit under helmet. "
Pros: Lightweight, Versatile, Good Fit

Tough, aggressive and light weight Dyna-Sys 10-speed SLX rear derailleur using revolutionary features from XT and XTR at an affordable price point.
 

Fitting to road bike.

Looking to downgear my road bike for touring with a load and would like to keep road shifters and chainrings but change to mountainbike cassette at rear.

Will this derailleur work with Shimano 105 5700 shifters? Will the indexing be right?

Also, will a shimano mountain bike cassette work with 105 5700 road chain?
