Been riding a set for a couple of months now. Like them a lot. I rode through some nasty roads and didn't even get a flat...until the last lap of last Sunday's race ARRRGGHHH!!!! Hit the edge of a badly resurfaced patch of road and boom, there goes the race. Oh well, up until then they had performed flawlessly.I3erto said:Anybody ride these tires?? What do you think compared to other tires youve tried??
Conti 4000s handle great and comfortable, but sidewalls are thin so I wouldn't train on them. I race on 4000s and train on krylions as they're affordable, durable and reasonably comfortable. Hope this helps.mcwenzel said:I have been using them for about two months. For the past four years I used Pro Race 2. I switched to Pro Race 3 this year but the tires had to be tossed after a few hundred miles because of too many cuts and the tire becoming compromised.
The Krylions do not handle nearly as well as the Pro Race 2 or 3 in my opinion, and the difference is even more noticeable in wet weather. They are far more durable however, and after about 1000 miles they still look new, despite riding over some unavoidable glass.
I am definitely more cautious running the Kyrlions. Overall I am not thrilled with them and would prefer a middle ground between the Pro Race and the Krylion. I have heard the Conti GP 4000 with the "black chili" compound is a nice compromise but have not had the opportunity to try them, having already spent a few hundred on tires this year
I was able to pick up the Krylions for around $50 a pair on ebay.
