Gravel Chaser – This skin is the go-to skin for your bike-packing & weekend adventures, and it is perfectly designed to give you optimal grip on gravel roads.
The shoulder knobs are angled to provide predictable handling and cornering.
Our custom rubber compound ensures optimal grip and traction even on wet terrain.
The center and transition knob height is reduced to get a faster rolling skin.
Gravel Chaser adds approximately 4mm (0.15 inches) to the height and 14mm (0.5 inches) to the width of your reTyre One base tyre when mounted. In terms of standard sizing for tyres, the effective tyre size with skin is:
26'' = 50-559/26x2.0
27.5 = 57-584/27.5x2.25
28'' = 50-622/28x2.0
29'' = 57-622/29x2.25
All reTyre skins are compatible and interchangeable with the reTyre One base tyre of the equivalent diameter.
The Gravel Chaser skin can only be used with our ONE base tyre already mounted on your bicycle.
1. Pin position
Attach the starting point to both sides of the tyre before closing the zipper. Check that the starting point is properly attached before you begin to close the zipper.
While closing the zipper, stretch the skin a bit to make sure it fits perfectly. Alternate between the sides while you close the zippers to reduce the resistance. The skin should meet itself at the end.
Finally, when the skin is installed, remember to close the puller into the locked position to secure it.
Two years ago, I've ordered a winter starter set (Base skin and winter traveler skin). As I am very happy with the products I decided to buy the graverl chaser skin. All products working very well!
After two years nearly almost using the base skin (only two or weeks with snow and ice in our rhine valley area) they have partly no profil left on the rear wheel, due to some harder brakings. Therefor the graverls need to be ordered and they work really excellent.
One suggestion: It was easy for me to oversee the rotational direction, so I had double work first time :-( , could you add this a bit more prominent to your instructions?
Storfornøyd med Retyre. En liten ide til forbedring: Glidelåshempene løsner ofte - jeg har løst det ved å "binde" dem fast med strikk rundt felgen - en lite proff løsning. Kanskje hempene kunne utstyres med en åpne-lukke anordning, slik at de festes til ytterdekket bare når det trengs!
Bra piggdekk, kunne ha hatt noen flere pigger på siden av banen.
Gatedekket er veldig bra god rulle egenskaper, knastedkket har jeg nettopp kjøpt
Og har bare testet det noen ganger, men så langt virker det meget bra.
Meine Frau nutzt diese Skins in Saas-Fee im Winter. Sehr gute Qualität, schnelle Lieferung und sehr einfache Montage. Sehr empfehlenswert!
