What’s so special about choosing a MTB tire? The answer is simple: they are the innumerable considerations that are involved in this process.
The correct choice of your bike tire is not only based on the quality of the product and its function , but also on price, durability and, of course, your preferences. The tire is fundamental for the safety and performance of the bike, after all it is through it that it comes into contact with the ground-which may be different for different categories!
This is one of the points: there is no tire that is great in any situation.”What you gain from traction necessarily loses speed.” This is a delicate balance, where the one who determines which feature should take priority over the other is the cyclist.
To help you in this task we separate four considerations that should be considered in selecting the appropriate tire for your predilections:
– Cameras: X Kevlar Wire!
Tires with wire frames are the most common-they equip most outdoor bikes, and are characterized by their higher weight and being cheaper.
Kevlar tires have some advantages compared to the previous one, because in addition to being lighter, the tire is much easier to assemble and dismantle from the rim (it does not even require the use of spatulas), and it is still foldable. Is another benefit when storing and transporting.
The dimensions of the tire, as well as its recommended pressure and its direction of use are printed on the side and should be understood as follows: 26 x 1.9 (rim diameter x tire width).
In general, we can arrange the tires and their respective functions as shown in the table below:
Within the limits stipulated by the manufacturer, each situation / floor can guide you if the pressure should be higher or lower:
– For more adhesion (rough asphalt, slippery or obstructed tracks) the pressure must be reduced.
– To get more speed (good asphalt, smoother tracks or dirt) you have to increase the pressure.
The tread pattern (the part of the tire that comes in contact with the ground) varies according to the application of the tire. They can be completely smooth or have different formatted carnations with different spacing, water runners, in short, there is a whole functionality and technology behind the shape of a tread. Therefore, your choice is one of the most important and subjective.
There are asphalt slick tires, cross-country trails, hit-and-go tracks, mud tracks, downhill tracks (larger sizes and greater stiffness) and Also osmistos, which serve both asphalt and earth.
– Tires with high blackheads are suitable for muddy ground and low blackheads ensure a good running on dirt roads.
– The spacing between the carnations is important: the greater the distance between them, the less mud will accumulate.
– For those who use the bike most of the time on the asphalt, it is interesting to consider getting a slick tire, which will perform better in the city and roads and for those who enjoy pedaling only on bicycle paths, parks or by the sea.
Another option is the mixed tires, which allow greater versatility for the use of the bicycle and are perfect for hybrid bikes and for cycling cyclists.
Cool, huh? Now it’s easier to choose your MTB tire! But another way that can help you in this task is to exchange experiences with other cyclists. The passion for Bike unites us!
