GRAVEL CHASER SKIN

The perfect skin when you decide to let your bike take you on new adventures. It is an all-rounder for medium rough natural terrain, such as paths, gravel roads and forest roads. This skin features a fast-rolling centre tread designed to improve speed, while the higher shoulder knobs provide control and predictability when riding and cornering on uneven terrain. 

At the end of your ride, remove the skin and use the fast-rolling reTyre One* base tyre to cover the rest of your journey on the paved road. 

 For your next adventure, choose your bike!

* reTyre One base tyre is sold separately. 
** This skin also works great as a rear tyre for lower rolling resistance, in combination with the reTyre Trail Rider Skin mounted on the front wheel, for even better handling and control.

Fast Rolling

The center and transition knob height is reduced to get a faster rolling skin

Predictable Cornering

The shoulder knobs are angled to optimize understeer traction and provide predictable handling and cornering

Soft Rubber

Our NXT rubber compound ensures optimal grip and traction even on wet terrain.

SIZE INFORMATION

Remember, 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 
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. 

PRODUCT WEIGHT

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.

Can you use the Skins without the base tyre?

No, you need to buy a base tyre to use the reTyre system.

Do you need to deflate the base One tyre to zip on the Skin?     

No. The Skins fit perfectly to base tyre (reTyre One) inflated and already used on your bike. No extra work required.

Which surfaces is this skin for?    

Hard-packed ground, dirt paths and gravel roads.

Can I mix and match different skins?

Yes, you can.

Pratique, efficace mais peut encore mieux faire

J'ai pu tester les pneus skin Gravel au lendemain de grosses pluies dans la région lilloise.
Routes, chemins gravier, dans les champs, pavés (portions du Paris-roubaix).
L'ensemble skin+pneus est un peu lourd. Mais c'est pas grave. On le sens a peine. La skin ne bouge pas.
Par contre, la gomme est tendre +++ sur les crampons extérieur. c'est perturbant dans les virages sur route. L'impression d'avoir les roues qui chassent a chaque virages.
Dans la boue ou sur terre l'accroche est parfaite.
L'idéal pour la prochaine skin Gravel, des crampons qui ressemble au wtb riddler ou raddler ?
Ou réduire le diamètre des Retyre one, pour avoir moins l'effet "pneus de tracteur" quand on met la skin 😇. Faut avouer que l'ensemble skin + pneus, ça fait de grosses section de pneus tout de même.
Continuez comme ça!

Wow, looks like an interesting and fun ride, thanks for sharing the photos! :)) We are very happy you are enjoying your reTyres! And thanks for the feedback, will be forwarded to the product team ;)
Happy cycling,

Awesome tyres!

The gravel chasers are just what I needed! Riding to work I don't use any skins because it's smooth paths all the way but riding over the weekend with my kids the chasers are on! Brilliant grip even in uneven surfaces and gravelled paths round the many lakes we have near home. I can't stress enough how much confidence they give you when cornering! Very predictable cornering so you don't have to worry about slipping. Definitely would buy more of the other skins when I need them! Highly recommended!

Hi Richard,
Thanks so much for your feedback! We are very happy to see you are enjoying the advantages reTyre system has to offer! And we are looking forward to your feedback on other skins, when the time comes! It is always a pleasure to hear user stories. :)
Happy cycling,

Winter traveler gjorde jobben!

Perfekte novemberforhold for retyreføre med nattefrost en uke her og der. Tok av og på i noen omganger før vinteren satte seg, med største snømengder på 50 år. Vi kom oss trygt til barnehage med sykkelvogn, og videre jobb. Så var det deilig å zippe av, og kunne bruke gravel chaser, når vi runda påske.

reTyre for life!

My bike is a Haibike fullseven 1.0. With Gravel Chaser skins now I have a complete all-weather tyres sets. Installation mistake, on one tyre the skin started coming off on the first test ride, it was my mistake as I didn't push the insert pin on that side all the way in the bottom stop, just like clumsy jacket wearing I guess :). So make sure you push the insert pin all the way in before pulling the slider on all 4 sides (2 tyres). The Gravel Chaser skins are grippy and smooth after one month of almost daily riding, perfect all-rounder, zero issues. Also happy with my Winter Traveler skins, didn't skip a day!

Smart system som trenger forbedreng

Systemet er kjempe smart
Men det er noe som må forbedres: Glidelåsen har en tendens til å revne etter at de er montert. De må forsterkes.
Det er heller ikke uvanlige at det blir ujevnheter i dekkene slik at det blir "slag" i sykkelen når en kommer opp i fart.

Hei Gunnar,
Vi beklager å høre at du hadde problemer med GC! Det høres ut som om det er en feil med ditt produkt, produksjonsfeil skjer dessverre. Kundesupporten vår vil gjerne støtte deg i dette problemet, har du mulighet til å sende oss bilder til marketing@retyre.co slik at vi kan identifisere hva som er problemet? Når det gjelder passformen, har du prøvd et høyere dekktrykk?
MVH,
