Great tyre but sidewall has cracked

Brought the tyre 4 months ago and the sidewalls are cracked, both sides. Great tyre for a easy fix but it's worth investing in a good tyre as I'm now needing to buy another.

Initially a great tyre...

I bought a pair of these in March 2018. Initial impressions were that they are a great tyre. I had to exchange one of the tyres in May 2018 as it had a split across an internal seam right across the contact surface. It looks like I will now have to return the other one too (2 year warranty right?) as it has developed cracks right on the edge of the contact area/sidewall. I went into the Milton Keynes store this afternoon to discuss this. The chap I spoke to explained the cracks were probably due to the tyre's hard compound. I think he didn't realise there is a 2 year warranty on these as he suggested I wouldn't be able to get a refund. (Am going with Conti Gatorskins now.) Finally, I think I may have had a bad 'batch' as the replacement tyre i got in May 2018 is still OK. Both have worn very little and roll nicely so it's a shame there have been apparent manufacturing/material problems.

Resist 9 tyres

Seem ok. Descent rolling resistance and seem durable for the terrible Sheffield cycle lanes

Life expectancy of this tyre is 4 months!!!

I returned my Resist 9 tyre to the Wandsworth store after the sidewall ripped after approx. 11 months use. Roberto (Senior Mechanic at Wandsworth Decathlon) informed me “the changes in humidity in London” affect the materials in this tyre to the extent that its effective lifespan is on average 4 months. He pointed out my tyre was cracked along the sidewall which he stated was evidence of wear and tear due to atmospheric conditions. The description of the Resist 9 on Decathlon’s website states the product is extensively tested for “resistance to wear” and “longevity”. I have been cycling for quite a few years and have never experienced a tyre wear out in this way at this rate. (I use my bike to commute on 3 – 4 days per week. The tyres are always inflated to the appropriate pressure and the bike is stored indoors at home.) The Resist 9 is supposed to come with a 2-year guarantee. The refusal to honour that guarantee by a Senior Mechanic at Decathlon as he wouldn’t expect the tyre to last more than 4 months (presumably in most of NW Europe), in my view, completely undermines the comments made in the “Our Commitments” section of the web page. Notwithstanding the puncture resistance on the tyre which was quite good, based on my (and Roberto’s) experience I would not purchase this poor-quality product.

Hello. Thank you for making us aware of the issues you have experienced with this tyre and the subsequent service in store. I have contacted the Wandsworth store to get in touch and to honour the two year guarantee as advertised. I hope we can find a prompt and appropriate solution for you to get back on the bike.

Four blow outs

Had replaced older tyres on bike and bought a spare after first blow out ( side wall) I made mistake and bought same tyre again. Lose another to a side wall blowout (side wall again). Third tyre just went and that was most recent one and was another blowout but was at the tread of main bead ( when going to fix I noticed it was coming away at mor than one place. Poor quality but I must say never had proper puncture.

Hello there. Thank you for the feedback on the tyre. Very strange and frustrating I can imagine to suffer so many blow outs in quick succession. Your review has be fed back to the tyre production team to look at.  In the meantime if you are able to return the tyres to the team in Braehead, firstly for your refund or exchange,  but also it would be very helpful for us to inspect them in more detail to see where the fault is coming from. Many thanks.

Sidewalls cracked/splitting

Got these to put on my commuter bike, previously had continental and schwable. These are cheap and have good levels of grip, not fast rolling but not slow either, not much feedback but for a 5 mile commute not a bad tyre. I was sold on the puncher protection aspect and so far no flats which is a plus. But my main issue is the sidewalls on both tyres are badly cracked and splitting after about 6 months use. It's only a matter of time before the sidewalls fail so will require changing soon even though the actual tread hasn't worn much. Think I will return to a premium brand.

I'm sorry to read that the sidewalls show signs of wear. There are three possible reasons for this. 1) Poorly stored tyres post production or 2) tyres left un-inflated for a period of time 3) continuous exposure to UV light (leaving your bike outside all of the time). As you are a regular cyclist I doubt very much that the latter two reasons are the cause of your issues. If you feel that they are faulty, please feel free to return them to us for an exchange for a different tyre.

A bit lumpy and not long lasting

Compared with other brand names, this is a very good priced puncture-resistant tyre. However, from the start, I noticed that it felt a little lumpy when I used it on the rear wheel. Not a major problem, but I was disappointed when it exploded with a very loud bang last week due to internal de-lamination. It was 19 months old and had done 1700 miles. This is much less than I have come to expect from a tyre.

Not what I expected

I went for these tyres after I had 5 punctures on my back tyre, first ride after I installed these I got another puncture so I’m disappointed to be honest

Pneu très bien, j'ai...

Pneu très bien, j'ai plusieurs sorties avec, pas de crevaison pour l'instant malgré quelques passages sur des chemin en graviers, routes en travaux. Je le trouve très confortable en comparaison des pneus d'origine sur mon Triban 520RC, le vélo est transformé. En descendant les cols pas de soucie de grip que ce soit dans les virages ou au freinages appuyés. Un peu plus lourd mais à moitié prix comparé aux grandes marques.

How to measure tire wear

To measure the wear on your road treys and to know when they need replacing, you need to inspect the tread. Signs of wear include: - tread starting to fray - the appearance of a series of micro cracks - low tread depth - the carcass becomes visible. In all these cases the tire is worn and needs replacing.

How to remove a tire

To remove your tire, deflate the inner tube until no more air comes out. Once deflated, use a tire lever to remove the tire from the rim.

How to fit a tire

To put the tire back on, place one side of the tire into the rim. Next, inflate your inner tube to approximately 30% before putting it into the tire (inflating it beforehand reduces the risk of pinching the inner tube). Then insert the other side of the tire into the rim, starting on the side opposite the valve. Before inflating the inner tube all the way, check to make sure it isn't pinched between the tire and rim.

How to inflate your tire correctly

Inflate your tire carefully. The recommended pressure is indicated on the tire's sidewall and its product sheet (available online). Before each outing, make sure that your tires are at the correct pressure for your ride.

Tip from the pros

When inflating your tire, make sure you inflate it to the suitable pressure for the terrain you will be riding on and the weather conditions you will be riding in. When riding in rainy weather, lower the tire pressure to increase the tire's traction. On the other hand, when riding in dry weather, you can increase the pressure for better performance.
