" Winter riding in the UK is all about not having to stop and these tyres give me confidence with their puncture protection
Only had 1 puncture on these tyres in 3 winters of using them which is about 6000 miles of riding
They do feel heavy and you notice the performance hit of riding with them but this is a worthwhile tradeoff for having to spend 10-15 alongside a road in cold conditions replacing a punctured tube "
Pros: Durable, Rugged

" This is a great bag. Before I brought this I had a very sweaty back every time I cycled. Now my back stays sweat free and even my shoulders hardly get sweaty from the straps.
There has also been a lot of thought go into the design of the bag, an example being the zipper straps for the main compartment clip together as they make a clicking sound if they are left apart! Brilliant, and shows the bag had been through a thorough QA to me.
Only improvement I could see would be the ability to remove the chest straps but that is down to how I like to have the bag on me.
"
Pros: Comfortable, Adjustable, Versatile

" Kept having a problem with cold toes until I brought these socks.
I had been wearing 2 pairs of socks and less vented shoes and still got cold toes.
Was recommended them by a friend and no cold toes since. "

Winter Riding

Is this tyres suitable for winter riding, if not any suggestions, I'm after a tyre with great puncture protection like these or marathon plus that are good for winter cycling.
Yes, these tyres are very good for winter riding and what I use.

They are a lighter version of the marathon plus and thus have lesser protection but I've only had 1 puncture in around 6000 miles of winter riding on these
