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.READ MORE
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.
The tyre's section is its width.
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.
IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR COMFORT Choose a tyre with a wide section such as 28 mm.
