Hi,

My bike is a hybrid, I do 60% road and 40% off road i.e. grassed
footpath / shale forest road etc. I am forever picking up THORN
punctures.

Can anyone suggest a tyre whose composite will resist in helping me
stop picking up so many punctures of this kind.

Present tyres are 26 x 2.10 EXTREME XC - TIOGRA Dont know if this
make means anything !

Many Thanks

Gary.

Probably size 26 x 1.75 will be OK too.

Seconded - I use Marathon Plus and find they stand up to almost
everything (except flint flakes when they work in, but nothing stops
those).

if you don't go too much off road, then may be one of the Schwalbe
marathon family will do?

i have them on my old mountain bike which i use 99% on road, but i have
taken them light off roading, richmound park etc cope fine. no problems.
