Getting a new bike with Giant SL1 wheels. Unfortunately, this has hookless wheels which I don’t want to change.
I was planning to stick on Pirelli P Zeros but they are not compatible with the SL1 wheels per the Giant website (even though they claim to be hookless compatible on the package). Will not be using GP5000s as these are just impossible to get on and off.
So its probably Goodyear Eagle F1s (not tested on the Giant website) or Michelin Power Road Tubeless (tested on the Giant website).
Has anyone here used the F1s on SL1 wheels?
Also, any comments / feedback on the Michelin Power Road Tubeless?
I’ve used the Power roads, but not on the SL1’s. They are a great tyre. I’m not sure if they still make them, I think they have been replaced with the Power cup. The Schwalbe Pro One’s are also good.
Do you know you can run any tyre if you don’t pump them up over 72.5 psi?
That’s what the Giant website, but there is an exclusion for the Pirelli P Zeros which appear to have been tested and not to have passed - have a look at tyres I should not use here:
Good to know the Michelin’s are good - I’ve just ordered some so will try them when I get the bike.
It’s funny, I’ve never scrolled that far down the page. Not good researching from me.
Neither had I!!
Just happened to mention to the guy in the cycle shop that I’d got Pirellis and he told me. Good thing as it appears the Pirellis have failed.
