Bike tyres

Cyclists know that the type of tyre you choose can make a significant difference in your ride's performance, comfort, and safety. In our extensive selection of bike tyres, customers will find a variety of designs tailored to their riding preferences. Our inventory includes high-quality wired-on tyres, folding tyres, tubeless tyres, and tubular tyres from some of the leading brands in the cycling industry such as Vittoria, Michelin, Continental, Maxxis, and Schwalbe. Whether you’re a dedicated road racer, a mountain biking enthusiast, or a winter rider, our collection has the right tyre to fit all kinds of bikes and conditions.

Each subtype of bike tyre has distinctive characteristics that cater to different needs. Wired-on tyres, also known as clinchers, are the most common design and feature a bead that hooks onto the rim of the wheel, ensuring a secure fit. Folding tyres are similar to wired-on tyres but have a flexible bead made from materials like Kevlar, making them lighter and easy to transport. Tubeless tyres provide a more consistent ride by removing the need for an inner tube, reducing the risk of punctures and allowing for lower air pressures, which can improve traction. Finally, tubular tyres, intended for racing and high-performance cycling, are sewn around an inner tube and glued to a specially designed rim, offering decreased rolling resistance and a smoother ride.

When looking for the ideal bike tyre, customers should consider the terrain and conditions in which they'll be riding. Mountain bikers might prefer the Maxxis Minion DHR II WT TR DD 120TPI 3C Terra for its aggressive tread and durability, while road cyclists might gravitate towards the Continental Grand Prix 5000 for its legendary performance and puncture resistance. For winter rides, Schwalbe’s Ice Spiker Pro provides exceptional grip on icy terrains. Factors such as tyre width, tread pattern, and puncture protection are important, and riders should take into account their riding style and the compatibility with their bike's rims. Therefore, using these properties to filter your choices will ensure finding the perfect tyre that meets your cycling demands for safer and more enjoyable rides.
