Dollar for dollar, nothing has as big an effect on the performance of your bike as your tires, and there are heaps of new models hitting the market that all aim to maximize traction and rolling speed, while simultaneously minimizing wear and weight.
Not surprisingly, many of the new models are aimed at mixed-surface riding — it is the hot segment of cycling right now, after all — with fresh tires from Schwalbe, Continental, Challenge, and WTB.
There is also progress being made on the road side, too. We recently highlighted the new RapidAir from Specialized and the revamped Pro One range from Schwalbe, for example, and Goodyear announced at this year’s Eurobike show that it’s moving further upscale in terms of performance after the middle-of-the-road Eagle All-Season model that debuted last year.
