Designed with the classic gravel grinder in mind, this tire crosses the line between road and cyclocross to provide the performance and comfort needed for long gravel/dirt road rides.
- Handmade tires combine many attributes to create the most comfortable and lowest rolling resistance tires.
- TLR tires versions can be ridden tubeless with the addition of sealant but can also be run with an inner tube.
- Handmade construction means maximum comfort. In this version, a bead-to-bead inner coating gives added puncture protection to these tubeless ready tires and greatly reduces gradual loss of air pressure. An aramid bead protection strip increases tire longevity and reduces rim chafing.
- The Puncture Protection Strip is a special fabric placed between a tire's tread and casing to increase resistance to punctures. Designed for rough roads and gravel, PPS2 tires have an additional protection layer between the casing and the inner tube.
Going tubeless allows you to run lower tire pressures without the added weight of a tube. Lower tire pressure has many benefits, including greater traction, lower rolling resistance over rough surfaces, and decreased risk of a puncture-related flat.
Tubeless-ready rims and tires are parts of a complete system that eliminate the need for tubes by creating an airtight chamber between the rim and tire. Liquid sealant is added to the chamber to fill small punctures and maintain air pressure while you ride.
UST (Universal Standard for Tubeless) is a specific type of tubeless system that dictates the shape of the rim and tire beads. UST rims should be paired with UST-specific tires for best results.
