Panaracer upped the puncture protection of its Race A tyres with the Evo 3 version. The Evo 4 features the same tough carcass with a new rubber compound that’s said to be faster and grippier. It also introduces a tubeless option to the range. We tested the standard tubed tyre in increasingly popular 28mm size alongside the best of the rest in both ‘Race’ and ‘Endurance’ categories to see if it's worthy of inclusion in our guide to the best road bike tyres
