A word about performance

If we consider two identical tires, one may last three times as long as the other, depending on the user and the terrain.

This service life depends on:

  • The thickness of rubber at the crown
  • The resistance of the rubber compound to wear
  • The resistance of the casing to "fatigue"
  • The tire's resistance to attack (ozone, crazing, cuts, UV rays,...)
  • The pressure match between the cyclist and the type of use
