After cycling 950 miles on GreenTyre solid rubber bicycle tyres, I thought that I would give them a quick review!
Author: George Killick
Why did you not tell the make?
Maybe the closed cell foam tires would be much better???
stop at a bike shop for new tyres, for $10 fitting, tx for video
I hate flats, Tannus forever!
Nice quick, tight, comprehensive review.
I wish all videos on YT followed your no-bones format.
Good job buddy.
these tyres should solve all the negative points, due to their inner suspensions:
The “only” problem is: a couple of these tyres costs 2600 US$
Great, honest review! Thumbs up…
what is 950 miles???????? use normal units
thanks for this, I’ll stick to regular tires with tubes!
so the conclusion is…
if you are a commuter .. solid tyres are Ok.
If you are a bike enthusiast who rode it on all kind of terrains .. stay away.
if you don’t have suspension on your seat or on the front frame. stay away
if you do have it’s Ok.
Lastly buy the original who develop it.
do not buy imitation.
great video! do you need to buy specific rims for rubber tires or do you purchase rubber tires to fit your normal bike rims you already have? Your replay would be greatly appreciated. thank you.
What about the tannus or nexo solid tyres??
+1 for typing “yea” and not “yay”.
Yeah but I hate flats
We claim to be faster than pneumatic tires. Composite hoops vacuum sprung from the wheel. They respond at high frequency.
Immediate handling and hook up at the highest speeds. Velodrome is on our menu.
downvoted because you are not providing real info about the tire itself and the power point style of presentation is missing key images that could have solved the ordeal… now regarding your personal take on the tire, you made 2 or more mistakes… 1st one you forgot physics!, it is clear that you will need to incorporate something else to compensate the fact that you removed the pillow that you were using… there are at least 2 solutions to your ordeal, they all are about adding a suspension system to your vehicle… remember physics wins… physics doesn’t care if you are pretty or ugly… nor do I so as physics has run you all over… I have downvoted you… so… yes physics and I… we are here to downvote you when you forget about us..
What brand tire did you use for the rest? I think that this is an important aspect of any review as there are several brands out there, some cheap that do not claim to be high performance tires, and one that claims to be as good as pneumatic tires.
I’m no expert. I’m a casual cycler. But is there any reason there isn’t simply a solid insert to place UNDER a regular tire, just like a regular tube?
Great review…. only 950 miles on a tyre and that condition (no comment on your distance just the poor tyre!).. After seeing this I am sticking to Shwalbe Marathon Plus or Durano. Good luck on your next trip!
Anyone else spot the UFO in the footage bottom right?
The ones we make in the UK are totally awesome! I have some on my Motorized Bike and would never go back to tubes even if I was paid to do so
I am thinking the ones you reviewed maybe the cheaper copies and the genuine ones do not break like that. I have been on snow and ice, mud, concrete, tarmac clay and stone trails etc. Not a problem 2 years in.
If you keep deliberately skidding on them you will get problems though but if you ride normally they should last years,
Great review. I understand that these tires rated low for your adventure but would you say they have a place on commuting bicycles?
