Mountain Bike Tyres

MTB or mountain bike tyres are a deciding factor with it comes to grip between your bike and the ground. That means they also need to be changed when they wear. How long an MTB tyre lasts, depends on various factors. The distance the tyres are ridden is not the only indicator for when they need to be changed. The stiffness of the rubber compound also makes a difference. This campaign includes a huge selection of tyres from Schwalbe, Continental, Maxxis, Michelin, Onza, WTB, Kenda and e*thirteen.

Mountain Bike Tyre Size and Width

When purchasing your MTB tyres, the first thing to do is check the size. Your wheel size determines if you first need 26”, 27.5” or 29” tyres. Next, you need to check what tyre width fits in both the frames rear triangle and fork. After that, the style of riding determines what type of tyre you need. If you ride in Marathons or Cross Country then you most likely need a tyre with less rolling resistance and that isn’t too wide. Freeride and Downhill riders on the other hand are looking for wider tyres with more grip. All Mountain and Enduro bikers look for a compromise between rolling resistance and grip.

The Rubber Compound

MTB tyre manufactures produce various rubber compounds. A hard compound lasts longer than a soft one, but also offer less grip. It is very important to match the rubber compound to what type of riding you do.
