The LT2 Hardcase Ultimate is Bontrager's lightweight all-around tire, at home on the street as well as paths and light trails. It's multi-surface tread gives you all-weather traction, and you get serious peace of mind with ultimate puncture protection and flat resistance. The Black/Reflex version has reflective sidewalls for improved night-time visibility.
I have a Bianchi Boardwalk that needed new tires. The Ritchey Cross-Bite that came with the bike was no longer available. The Bontrager LT2 Hardcase Ultimate 700x38c tread was an excellent substitute. This tire was a lot more than I wanted to spend but it is an excellent tire. Great traction and great puncture protection; no tire liner needed. If you are looking for a lower cost solution and don't mind installing tire liners, consider the Bontrager LT2 700x38c tire, but get a tire liner and avoid a flat.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
