This is my first post, hopefully it'll be useful for anybody looking at Scwalbe Ultremo ZX tyres.
I bought two blue tyres from probikekit
in May 2013.
Due to a couple of injuries these tyres have only covered 460 kilometers.
A month ago the front tyre split around the circumference of the tyre between the blue and black parts of the tyre. I fitted an old Vittoria tyre so I could carry on riding.
A week ago the rear tyre split exactly the same way, I decided to contact Scwalbe and probikekit
No reply from Schwalbe, probikekit
replied that the tyres had perished due to heat and sunlight! My bike is stored on a maintenance stand out of sunlight when not in use. I asked probikekit
why did they sell tyres to Australia if they couldn't be used in sunlight or heat, so far no reply!
I've ordered Michelin Pro 4's from wiggle
, hopefully I'll be able to cycle in sunlight with them.
