ICE RACER SKIN

The Ice Racer skin is designed to provide maximum grip on snowy, winter roads. 300 dual compound carbide studs ensure 12 unique contact points with the ground, which makes it the ultimate skin for ice and snow. With this skin, you will be able to ride safely even in extreme winter conditions and on unclear winter roads. If the frost conditions change during the day, simply remove the Ice Racer skins and continue cycling on the reTyre One base tyre. 

 reTyre Ice Racer gives you the freedom to choose the bike no matter what the weather throws at you!


*reTyre One base tyre is sold separately. 

Active Snow Shedder

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

300 Dual Compound Studs

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

Winter Rubber

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

SIZE INFORMATION

Remember, Ice Racer 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 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

Size 26": 640 with 272 studs 

Size 28": 710g with 300 studs
Size 29": 890g with 300 studs

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?  

Heavy snow, extreme weather conditions and black ice.

Can I mix and match different skins?  

Yes, you can.

Depending on your ride style, weather conditions and personal preference, you can choose to:
  • Mount reTyre One and Winter Traveler only on the front wheel, for advanced users who wish to reduce rolling resistance even in the winter months; 
  • Mount Ice Racer on the front and Winter Traveler on the rear wheel, provides even better grip on the front combined with less rolling resistance on the back, which works great on deeper snow.

Will the studs on the winter skins fall out?  

No, but the tyre studs have a “running-in period" of minimum 25 km riding on asphalt, with low speeds and careful braking and turning in order for the studs to “fuse” together with the rubber, which is the norm for studded tyres. 

I lost some studs this season, is this normal?  

Yes, if you are actively riding in winter season it is normal to lose some of the studs, but you can order the studding tool with spare studs and easily ready your skins for the next season. No need to buy a new skin!

Most bikes will fit reTyre, but to be sure you measure the the areas depicted below. 


63 mm clearance for the 26” and 28” 

72 mm clearance for the 29” 

Fenders can also be a problem, but most are easily adjustable to fit reTyre.
