How to Choose Bike Tires

The tires are two of the most important components and they play a big role when it comes to the comfort, grip and rolling resistance. Which tires you should have is determined by many different aspects. What size wheels are obviously important, butalso keep in mind how and where you ride. Here below is a guide which we hope will help when shopping for bicycle tires.

Tyres for cityhybrid and trekking bikes

 

Tyres for cityhybrid and trekking bikes are manufactured in many different sizes and finishes. As on all types of tires are different pattern between models. A tire with coarse patterns will give you a good grip on wet or uneven surfaces, but has a higherrolling resistance. A tire with finer pattern has a lower rolling resistance and grip well on dry, level surface. When selecting bike tires so we recommend that you look over the functionality you need and how you want the deck to perform.

 

A feature that is often discussed when it is time to choose the tires are punkteringskydd. It is a common feature on the slightly more expensive models and are often agood investment. That a tire is punkteringskydd, however, does not mean that it is not possible to get a flat tire, but the tire protects much better than a regular tire. You save in the end is often a lot of time and money on hose, hose assembly replacements and repair visit.

 

Size of tyres for city and trekking bikes usually are measured in inches or millimeters. A tire in size 28 x 2.00 inch can also be designated as 622 x 50 mm. Size is usually printed on the side of the tire and it is not uncommon for both units is included. The rooms range in size from 20 to 28 inches in diameter (406-622 mm) and from ca 1.00 to 2.00 inches (25-50 mm). A wider tire provides more comfort while anarrower has a lower rolling resistance.

 

When it’s time to change bike tire, it is a common misconception that only a deck with exactly the same size will fit. A tire that is a little narrower or wider can change your cycling a lot, depending on your needs. The diameter must be exactly the same.

 

Keep in mind that the air gradually seeps out of the hose. That is why it is good that on a regular basis pumping up the tires. With the correct air pressure in tires, scrolleasier and protects the tyres better against impact and punctures.

 

Tyres for road bikes

 

Road tires are available in various designs of addicts on what kind of rider you are motions or elite cyclist. Racing tires and tires for exercise/training can look very different, for example different weight is often a great deal between them. To tyres are easy is obviously a good thing, but it also affects the durability. A tire that is a little heavier with puncture resistance may be preferable to a lighter deck at fitness and recreational cycling.
The most common type of tire is the perimeter wire deck, a good alternative which is usually inexpensive and easy to put on the bike. Folding tyre can be used both with and without hose. Without slang means less punctures, then the use of punkteringsvätska to seal the tires.
Tubdäck require specific wheels. This type of tire has similar characteristics as the folding deck with liquid. Tubdäcken glue we stuck on the rim and is the fastest optionbut also the bökigaste to assemble, perhaps more for the dedicated racing cyclist! Tubdäck is also possible to combine with the punkteringsvätska to seal the tire from the inside, helping to protect yourself from glass and genomslagspunkteringar.
The most common size for racing tires are 700 c diameter and 650c for junior bikes.The width can vary from 2328 mm where narrower tires have less rolling resistancewhile wider tires increase the comfort. Many people choose mittenmodellen 25 mmthat is a good mix between speed and comfort and is suitable for everyday biking and jogging course.
Tire for MTB
MTBtyres are available in different sizes and for full sized bicycles are the three sizes that are absolutely the most common. 26 inch was long the standard for MTB, but in recent years also has 29 inch and 27.5 inch (650b) become increasingly common.29 inches is often used for cross country and has obvious advantages when it comes to roll over obstacles and keep the momentum. 27.5 inch has to some extent the same advantages as 29 inches but is seen often as a little more playful and is common on the trail full suspension mountain bikes and DH/FR bikes.
The width of the tire should have is very much about personal taste, but there are of course some guidelines to go by. MTB-tyres are often between 2.50 1.75 and inch wide. The narrower tires are often lighter and thinner with a lower rolling resistance and directed to XC and other trail biking. The wider tires are often heavier and thicker, has a better grip and directed to enduro and DH/fr. most, however, use tyres from 2.10 and 2.35 inch. <br/> <br/> Remember to check out the tire width your rims are made of. The pattern on the tire is also important. Tires with less pattern rolls faster but also provide less grip and fit on dry and fast surface. Tires with coarser pattern provides better grip but rolls worse and is optimal for Messier forest terrain. For cycling in wet and muddy weather, it is good to have lerdäck whose pattern is specifically designed to clean off the clay while you are cycling for better grip. Some MTBtyres can also be running TUBELESS and then seal to deck using the rim tape and punkteringsvätska. They reduce the risk of puncture and to run with a lower tire pressure for better grip.
Studded tires
For those of you who want to cycle all year round, there are plenty of suitable clothing and equipment. When it comes to bicycle tires are there odubbade snow tires and studded tires. Winter tyres with studs come in various width, number of studs and patterning. For example, Schwalbe Marathon Winter Performance which has 240th studs and is a lättrullat deck that works nicely for bicycle commuting. In short, we could say that the more studs also provides better cornering grip, then studs are alsoplaced on the edges. The advantage of fewer studs is that the deck is easier and more lättrullat.
As a rule of thumb for bike commutingdo you live in southern Sweden and has not been icy streets all winter, we can recommend a tire with about 120 studs. Do you live in the North of Sweden can feel safe with about 240 studs. It is recommended to run into the studs approximately 40 km on asphalt to the studs to sit properly. Studded tires for MTB has many more studs, up about 360th.
