As the only contact point between your bike and the ground, getting the right selection of bike tyres is crucial for getting the most out of your riding. There are many different options to choose from, so it's best to understand your requirements before purchasing. Road bike tyres usually come in three options; clincher, tubeless, or tubular. Clinchers and tubeless tyres are the most common found on a typical road bike. Road bike tyres are faster rolling due to their narrow size and slick tread pattern. The typical standard width on road bikes has increased, with riders opting for wider tyres and lower pressures for improved comfort out on the roads. Some tyres offer built-in puncture protection, although this increases weight and rolling resistance. Due to this, riders tend to switch bicycle tyres between summer and winter to save their slicker faster tyres for nicer weather. Mountain bike tyres come in various wheel sizes, with the most common being 26", 27.5" and 29". There's also a variety of tread patterns - the bigger and deeper the treads, the more grip you'll have to play with, however, the trade-off is increased weight and lower speeds than a slicker MTB tyre. Therefore, it's essential to understand what kind of riding you want to do on your mountain bike (trail, cross country etc.) so you can get the right product to suit. We also have gravel and hybrid bike tyres, so no matter what or where you ride, there's something in our range to get you more control and speed on two wheels.
