Most loved bike tyres
Are you tired of discovering that your bike tyre has (yet another!) costly and frustrating puncture? Or maybe you're honing your biking skills and looking to upgrade your trusty bike? Why not update the tyres and discover the incredible difference picking the perfect pair of bike tyres can make to your overall experience? Whether you're an experienced rider or you've just begun your journey into this exciting world, bike tyres come in a variety of styles, thicknesses, and sizes for you to scroll through.
Do bike tyres make a difference?
Suitable and prime condition bike tyres are just as important as your brakes! Indeed, they're not only sought-after to improve your riding experience, but they're vital for ensuring your safety as they keep you in control and give you peace of mind. Whether you prefer biking on the road or up a mountain, snapping up the right bike tyres is essential. By way of illustrating, adult road bikes tend to come with 700c wheels with a width ranging from 23c to 32c, depending on the make and model of your bike. For road bikers that tend to stick to flat and smooth surfaces like tarmac, opting for a light tread or no tread at all will allow you to achieve a more effortless riding experience.
However, mountain bikers should search for a bike tyre with a much deeper tread as grip is a must-have in this environment. For loose trails, try looking for larger and more spaced out knobs that offer fantastic grip to leave you feeling secure, while hardpack trails are more suited to a low-profile tread pattern. Not to mention, regardless of whether you're a keen mountain biker or you've only just begun, you won't want to forget picking up must-have accessories such as a bike pump from our online range of pumps and a practical mudguard to prevent being sprayed with dirt on your next outing.
How long can you expect your bike tyre to last?
Due to extensive use, even the most expensive and durable bike tyres have a limited life span, no matter how well you look after or maintain your bike. Typically, you can expect road bike tyres to last anywhere between 1000-3000 miles, so the lifespan of your bike tyre depends entirely upon the quality and how often you use your bike. Naturally, some of the more expensive bike tyres that are made from premium quality materials will reach the higher end of this scale, while racing tyres that are specially designed to achieve impressive speeds and performance, tend to need replacing after 1000 miles.
However, tougher bike tyres can last up to an impressive 4000 miles, but if you find that your bike tyre keeps becoming flat no matter how pumped up you make it - this is a sign that it needs replacing as soon as possible. More than just becoming flat (which can be a safety and control worry on its own!), bike tyres can also experience damaging effects associated with aging that include hardening and cracking - when your bike's tyres are in this condition, it shouldn't be used until they're replaced. Not to mention, if your bike's tyres are worn so much so that the tread is becoming smooth, this is another key sign that it needs replacing in order to keep you in control.
