HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR ROAD BIKE TYRE? 

The quality of a road bike tyre is measured by its resistance, durability, weight, density, and the materials it is made from. By finding the best balance, you will get the most out of your bike.

Road bike tyres should be chosen based on the tyre's diameter (it is important to choose exactly the same dimensions as your old tyre [650 or 700 mm]), the section, and the type of tread.

number 1

THE SECTION

The tyre's section is its width.

IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR COMFORT

Choose a tyre with a wide section such as 28 mm.

IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR PERFORMANCE AND RESPONSIVENESS

Go for a narrower section such as 23 mm.
The best compromise is a 25 mm section which is both comfortable and effective.

number 2

THE TREAD TYPE

Flex or stiff bead?

FLEX BEAD

This type of tread is lighter and easier to transport (you can fold the tyre).

STIFF BEAD

A stiff bead tyre will be heavier but easier to assemble and more robust.
