    Unbeatable allrounder

    Smart Sam goes well on any terrain and even on the road it rolls effortlessly. It will roll over just about anything in the Double Defense version.

    Hmmmm

    I bought a set of these to ride the south downs way on my CX bike, I had hoped as these are marketed as mountain bike tyres that they would be a bit tougher than their CX range, but alas the rear lasted 22miles, the paper thin sidewalls proving to be their undoing, I have had the same experience with other Schwalbe CX tyres previously, the side walls just are far to fragile. I am not a heavy rider 72kgs & I was running 45psi so not running them low either & they went boom on a section of uphill mud on possibly the least flint covered part of the trail.. ok its often luck if you do or don't get punctures I accept that but the side wall just opened up pretty much from bead to bead offering no resistance at all to the terrain they are meant to be designed for. For a muddy (no rocks) cx race they do offer stunning grip & Tredz service is first class. These tyres could absolutely be the one for cross county CX adventures but for the flimsy sidewalls

    Better Than Expected

    Having chucked my CX bike down a chalky South Downs descent twice in 500m I decided replacement tyres were in order. New to CX'ing but with a trust for Schwalbe products I finally settled on Smart Sam's based on Twitter feedback. Less rolling resistance than the 'slicks' the bike came with and grip in the mud that really surprised me. I can pedal through mud without wheel spin and, as yet, haven't fallen off again. Great product, great price and great Tredz service. What's not to like?
