It's no secret that Compass tires are made by Panaracer and that Panaracer's original tires are great value for money
Compass tires use a different casing from the standard Panaracer Pasela. It's supposed to be more like that of a race tire. The sidewalls are very light, which means the tire does not generate much friction even when running at lower pressure with higher tire drop.
Some of the Panaracer tires have special materials for added puncture protection, but not Compass tires since they're optimised for suppleness and efficiency. Based on my experience with Compass tires so far, I see no need for extra puncture protection (a single puncture over 13,000 km) and am fine with the relatively fragile sidewalls.
I gave tubeless a try last year, even though it wasn't with the right tires (the Compass BSP set up tubeless ended up leaking air through the sidewalls).
I am not sure I am ready to give it another try anytime soon even with proper "tubeless ready" tires, because of several issues:
The need to regularly top up sealant. That's one more piece of maintenance to take care of, on top checking tire pressure and topping up air.
My tubeless valves got clogged with sealant. It became next to impossible to quickly inflate the tire to pop the bead in place, at least without a compressor.
Tubeless valves were not easy to remove with fingers alone, which could have caused problems when needing to instal spare tubes after a puncture too big to seal with sealant alone.
As you can tell, at the moment I'm firmly on the side of simplicity again - tubes seem like the lesser evil to me
I definitely recommend the Panaracer models for anyone on a budget, they're good tires. Compass tires are more expensive and claim some advantages. Whether these are worth that extra money is a personal choice.
