" These are my tyre of choice. I've bought a few now. I mostly commute. I'm not interested in having really light weight tyres. I just don't want punctures. I've only had one puncture in 1000's of miles using these tyres. The tyres are very smooth and quiet. I have no complaints about grip levels in any weather conditions. They are very long lasting too.

Pros: Durable, Good Fit, Great Value, High Quality, Rugged

" These narrow guards are surprisingly wide. The fixtures sit inside the guard so they overhang the tyre. If great ascetics are important to you, I wouldn't recommend. The rear guard comes with two struts each side. Having used rear guards with only one pair of struts in the past, they can sag onto the tyre. The struts can slide to any position on the guards so they are very versatile. The guards are made from made from a tough plastic with a matt finish. The instructions that came with the guards weren't much use and didn't seem accurate. However, there were plant of parts provided to fit the guards to all sorts of bike. The struts needed down. I wouldn't recommend if you want some guards that are really easy for a novice to fit. I had to provide my own longer screws to fit the rear struts and my rear rack to the bike. Overall, I'm really please with them, they look and fit well but I am quite capable at bike mechanics. "

The Mono Waterproof Overtrouser offers you rain protection for your legs and feature an adjustable tailored fit for minimal bulk.
 

What material and are they breathable?

From my experience, there is no such thing as breathable material. Sweat is no different to water and no material only allows moisture to travel on only one direction.

They are made of standard waterproof material, nothing fancy. There are no ventilation ports and the trousers are not lined with anything (such as that moisture wicking net like material).

You will sweat in these (as you would in any other water proof garment) unless it's really cold. I wear Lycra tights under these which stops them sticking to your skin as much. As with any waterproof trousers, you have to choose your time to wear them depending on weather conditions, journey time, changing facilities. In light rain, I don't bother with them. But if the rain is heavy and it's cold or windy too, I wear these to stop my knees getting cold and sore.

Zip at bottom?

Do they have a zip or poppers at the bottom (besides the velcro) so they can be put on easily over large shoes and boots?
Zip and two Velcro fasteners. I can put mine on over overshoes but it's not easy because of the friction between the materials used in the overshoes and water proof trousers.

Will these tyres fit my bike

I have Mavic Cosmic Elite 700 x 23 on my road bike and I'm looking for a good quality puncture resistant winter tyre - will these fit my wheels?
I have a road bike with wheels the same size, and they fit on my bike and don't interfere with the mudguards or brakes.

How do you fit folding tyres?

I find it very difficult to get the tyre on to the wheel - do I need to soften the tyre first.
There are lots of videos (of varying quality) on YouTube. Have a look at some of these. It may help to have the tyre at room temperature but I wouldn't recommend heating up any further. Use tyre levers to push the bead over the rim and zip ties to prevent it popping off as you work your way round.

What is a "folding tyre"?

Yes - mine came folded up in a box. It does have a reasonably substantial bead round the edge but not solid.
