I have used the Schwalbe Pro 1 TLE (25 mm) on my solo road bike and it was a good tire, but I did have several tires fail due to glass cuts which would not seal, and even if they did I would not have ridden on them if I knew they had a 10 + mm cut in the tire.

I have ridden on Conti GP5000 on my road bikes (25mm) and my tandem (32mm). I have had one failure due to the casing separating from the bead (bang!) which was possibly due to low inflation. The Conti's are a bit less expensive, wear very well, seem to be more cut resistant, and I don't notice any handling difference.

I would ride on either Schwalbe or Conti, but when the Conti's are $10 per tire less from Merlin they get the nod.
