Show Description

A very durable, high-mileage training tire. The DuraSkin® side wall protection layers a durable polyimide fabric to the exposed sidewall. This protects the tire from cuts, punctures, and abrasion on the sides. Between the tread and the casing, is the SafetySystem Breaker construction, a strong and tight nylon reinforced with Kevlar. It makes the tire highly resistant to pinches and cuts from debris, thorns and broken glass, yet is lightweight and flexible.

  • Size suits compact road bikes, such as women's or youth's.
  • Width snaps through sharp corners with ease.
  • Durable carbon black tread mixture. Tread design collects less gravel while riding.
  • 180 threads-per-inch rating (The finer the fabric, the more flexible and puncture-proof the tire; the coarser the fabric, the more rigid and cut resistant the tire.)

The bead holds the tire onto the rim. Beads may be hoops of wire, or made of a flexible material which allows them to be folded compactly. Folding tires are easier to store or pack on trips.
