Looking for recommendations for a pair of skinwall tyres for my 95 Gary Fisher Paragon..
I’ll be using it for cyclepaths and gravel trails really so I don’t really want the Panaracer dart/smoke combo..

halo twinrail or h block, try and find the folding ones as they are much lighter.

Some of the Onza tires are nice, getting though to find in 26" sizes though?

Also I think SE makes some nice Happy/Medium tires in the Skinwall.

There are a few modern that have popped up in the market.
Schwalbe do a few Nobby nick (bit more than you need) City Jet 1.95 (probably a good one for this), as do halo and some others.

The lovely gravel path tyre the Splashback of recent years is not sold anymore.

Schwalbe City Jets work nice on my commuter. Cheap too.
