I am currently riding Conti GP4000S tyres, in 700x23mm version, inflated at 115 psi.
The grip is great, the (light)weight is amazing. I have punctured twice with them (in 1500 km) which is more that I would hope, but I can live with that.
Still, when I look at my tyres, I see minor cuts on the tread. Nothing major but let's just say that any time I am stopped at traffic lights, and I look down, I can see at least a "wound".
Do I run the risk of increasing the number of punctures? are those tires really too road-training-oriented to use them for commuting?
I like Continental, I like the 23mm format, I like this (lack of) weight. So I was considering 4Seasons which are a few grams heavier but offer an extra layer of protection against puncture.
I have plans for a long ride (~150 km) and would want to avoid more than 1 puncture in the day.
