I have hybrid bicycle off road eddition with 1.6 inch Schwalbe Tyrago Tires. They are no longer produced however and now i search for new ones since these are pretty wear out.
Their level 3 guard against punchture is non existent so i search level 4 or 5 now.

Are continental ride tours any good ?

Yes, they're good. They have a reasonable puncture protection layer and they have a good thick tread. They're also very reasonably priced. I had a set of them on my daughter's 20" bike when she was younger and they served well in that application.

I just installed a set of Conti GP 4 Season 700x32 on the FX. It originally came with 32mm tires but I had been riding Conti GP 4000sii 28mm tires for some time because I liked their performance and feel but I wanted to go back to something a little wider, puncture resistant and versatile. I'm actually taking them out for their first ride this morning.

Best tyres for me have been the Specialized All Condition Armadillo Elite II Folding size 700 x 32...tarmac and a bit of gravel...no punctures so far.

I mainly ride 32c Gatorskins as all arounders. Good balance and hold up to gravel rail trails as well. Not fond of the hardshells ride quality.

Also I wouldn't be opposed to Schwalbe Little Big Ben's in that application. 700x40c

I really didn't notice any less of a comfortable ride with the 38s on. So yes tires do make a difference.
Same experience here, I have a Verve 3 and put on Continental Terra Speed 40mm, night and day difference from the OEM tire.

Don't know why Trek puts those tires on the Verve. They are big and clunky. I tried selling both tires a while ago on Facebook Market place for $30, and didn't get one person ask or offer anything less. Guess I'll reduce the price and see if anyone wants them. I know I'll never run them again.

The payback for the weight and "dead" feel to the ride is (likely) very good puncture protection. Those H5 tires have a pretty thick puncture protection layer under the tread. So they SHOULD be fairly problem free (other than keeping air in them). That's the primary reason Trek fits them (well, that and the low manufacturing price).

You can get tires that have good puncture protection and also ride well (with reasonable weight), but they are more expensive.

on my main ride - a 2015 trek fx 7.4 - i went from the stock 700x38mm (IIRC) tire to a bontrager hardcase 700x25mm tire - the thinnest i could go on my stock wheelset. my neighborhood has perfect roads and the thicker tires were really busting my knees. now that i switched to a much thinner tire, the bike feels like a road bike in terms of acceleration and i find it just as smooth as the thicker tires due to the nice streets in my area. overall avg speed went up and my knees are not as fatigued/killed with these new tires.
