I am looking for some extra gip and comfort and reliability on the 100km or so of undulating dirt roads. Speed/weight/rolling resistance are not so important.
With some limited research, I'm considering:
-Schwalbe marathon touring tyre - greenguard
-Schwalbe delta cruiser plus - punctureguard
-Vittoria randonneur tech G+
..all in a 700 x 25C or even 700 x 28C size if it fits my frame.
Any suggestions from anybody who has done the ride, or plenty of riding on dirt roads with their road bike? Feedback on the above choices?
My first choice at the moment is the Schwalbe marathon - good chunky tread and good puncture protection.
Any advise much appreciated.
