Winter Traveler details

Winter Traveler – The test winner of both the ADAC, ÖAMTC and TCS winter tyre tests. In the tests, the skin outperformed winter tyres from other industry leading tyre brands with its high performance grip on both snow, ice and asphalt. The Winter Traveler skin is designed specifically for the urban e-bike commuter and brings you safely from A to B on your daily commute.

Optimized tread

This Skin has a high number of edges which enhances the traction on icy roads.

Winter Rubber

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

160 Dual Compound studs

With 160 studs made of tungsten carbide sitting inside an aluminum cloke you are certain to have great grip on icy roads.


Winter Traveler adds approximately 5mm (0.2 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

The Winter Traveler 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.

Winter Traveler/Customer Service

I recently purchased (Nov 2023) another Winter Traveler skin for my winter commute in Calgary, Canada. This is my second season running these tires and they do exactley as advertised. I had a warranty issue with one of my skins and the customer service team responded promptly and solved my issue. Would recommend this product!

Winter cycling!

With Retyre tires I can also use my bicycle in the winter (and the car stays in the garage😊)

Positivt overrasket

Jeg kjøpte Retyre under tvil men er positivt overrasket. Dekkene sitter godt og det er enkelt å skifte.

Amazing technology, Amazing grip - Winter Traveler

I found RETYRE while looking for flexibility and ordered a large set. The exit in the snow was accompanied by massive grins on their faces. Endless grip, ultra-short braking distances and never afraid of getting stuck or slipping. The set for my wife will be ordered soon!

Ich bin begeistert!

Ich bin 500 km im Monat auf meinem Fahrrad, es hat komplett mein Auto ersetzt. Also egal welches Wetter - es gibt keine Ausreden. Entsprechend wichtig sind also die Reifen, dieses Problem habe ich durch reTyre nachhaltig gelöst. Ich bin schwer beeindruckt, die Reifen sind hochwertig und schnell ist der Profiwechsel vollbracht. Jetzt im Herbst habe ich das Stollenprofil drauf und bin im Matsch und auf Laub sicher unterwegs. Und das beste: Wenn Eis kommt mache ich einfach die Spikes drauf :-)
Vielen Dank für dieses tolle Produkt, was für eine geniale Idee!
