Ride on ice, snow or both. These are the ultimate cold-weather commuter tires, designed keep you upright when the winter weather descends. They feature 240 carefully positioned studs to provide extra traction at lower pressure with rolling resistance low.
- Durable studs combine a carbide tip with a steel base.
- Siping on larger tread lugs optimizes acceleration, braking and traction through turns.
- Staggered stud placement gives reliable traction, even when cornering.
- Compatible rims: 20-28 mm.
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.
Threads per inch. Tires with a higher TPI tend to be more supple and lighter, with less rolling resistance, but are less durable.
