Are Schwalbe tires any good compared to Axial Pros? Saw them at a trade show and was mildly interested.

I've not used Axial Pro's but have used Conti GP 3000, Axial Selects, Vredstein Fortezza's and Schwalbe Neo Blizzards. They're subjectively fast, reasonably comfortable, excellent puncture resistance due to a kevlar belt and good traction. Worth looking into if you can find them.

as above, I haven't tried Axial's , but can tell you the schhhhhhwalbe Blizzards give excellent puncture protection (so far). I've ridden on them for 600 kms ( ~400miles) with no punctures and am becoming more confident in them riding directly over broken glass (not intentionally ofcourse).

Haven't tried them, but I've been checking them out on the website, which I was going to give you except now that I've started the reply I can't find it. Just for fun, check www.schwalbe.com, or else scwhalbetires.com.
Thanks for the commentsMarlon

I'll grab a set this summer and give them a shot. Post a review up here.
