Upgrade your bike

Ice Racer - This skin contains 300 studs with 12 unique locations in the contact patch which makes it the ultimate skin when commuting where the streets are not cleared regularly. The skin is especially designed for hilly areas where you need more grip and stability when braking and cornering while riding down steep roads.

Active Snow Shredder

Additional built-in functionality includes specially engineered knobs that will flex to shed snow.

Winter Rubber

Our winter rubber compound is engineered to provide optimal traction on ice and snow.

300 Dual Compound Studs

This skin has 300 studs with 12 unique locations in the contact patch, carefully distributed to ensure safe grip on ice.

The Ice Racer skin adds approximately 7mm (0.25 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 the Ice Racer skin is: 

  • 26" = 50-559/26x2.0
  • 27.5" = 57-584/27.5x2.25
  • 28" = 50-622/28x2.0
  • 29" = 57-622/29x2.25  

28 and 29 rims are the same diameter. Our 28" tyres will fit 29" rims, the only difference being that the 28" is more narrow than the 29".

All reTyre skins are compatible and interchangeable with the reTyre One base tyre of the equivalent diameter.

The Ice Racer 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.

2. Stretch
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.

3. Puller
Finally, when the skin is installed, remember to close the puller into the locked position to secure it.

Gab to big

The gap between the ends of the support jacket is nearly 2 cm. It seems to be very large. I would Like 5 mm or so.
