Folding Tires

Performance and convenience are key! Investing in folding tires can make your biking life easier. Folding tires offer many advantages in the cycling world:

• Lighter than other tires, they provide improved climbing and acceleration
• Small enough to travel with, it's easy to carry as a spare
• Easily stretched, they're simpler to take off and install

These tires are not good for any bicycle. I bought a pair and they broke in about a year.

They have their place. Usually, saving weight makes you faster but you sacrafice durability. Pick your battles. Get a flat in the front and that easily installable tire may give you big problems. All this said, I use them, sometimes.
