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.

1. Mount the base tyre on the rim like any conventional tyre and inflate to the recommended tyre pressure noted on the tyre.

2. We recommend that you let the tyre sit on the rim for 24 hours or have a short ride before mounting the skin.
This important step will allow the base tyre to expand and reach its normal size; which will guarantee a perfect fit between the skin and the base tire and the optimum conditions for use.

Can you use the Skins without the base tyre?  

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

Which surfaces is this skin for?

All types of city roads, paved roads, tarmac, wet or dry asphalt.

What is the durability of the One Tyre?  

Since the reTyre One tire is like any other regular tire, just with addition of zippers, the life expectancy is absolutely the same, only depending on your ride habits, storage, exposure to sun and different temperatures. For every manufactured batch of tires, we are sample testing for endurance on standardized test apparatus (with and without skin mounted), to ensure you get the best quality tyre.

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.

Can I mix and match different skins on reTyre One?

Yes, you can. 

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

What is the difference between reTyre One Wire and One Kevlar?

The main difference between the 2 tires is the material used in production. The bead is the part of the tire that comes into contact with the rim. Rigid type tires (also known as regular tires, wire tires) have a bead made using steel wire. This makes them durable and very stiff. Instead of using steel wire, folding bead tires use synthetic fibers like Kevlar. Kevlar is also a durable material but more flexible. This flexibility allows the tires to be folded and is lighter, so Kevlar tires are usually more lightweight than wire ones.

Should I choose One Wire or One Premium?  

If you consider yourself an average cyclist and you are not looking for performance or weight saving on your daily rides, you can safely choose wire bead. However, if you are performance oriented and care about the additional weight, or if you are planning a long-distance bicycle touring trip and wish to have spare base tires, choosing reTyre One Premium with Kevlar beads will help you save space and weight on your trip, as they are easy-weight and foldable and can easily be brought in a backpack. 

What size do I need?

You can check your current tire for the size and pick a matching one. Per industry standards, these are common:

26" = 42-559/26x1.6 - common size for Mountain bikes, but can also be found on City bikes
28" = 42-622/28x1.6 - most common standard for Hybrid and E-bikes
29" = 50-622/29x2.0 - works on the same rims as the 28", but is a bit larger, common for Mountain bikes

However, for reTyre system, beside the wheel size, you will need to make sure you have enough fork clearance. Check our Size Guide for more information.

Beware of the width

Once mounted, the winter traveler skin are pretty thick, actually too thick for my e-bike (Gazelle Citizen Speed 380) forks. Result : the zippers hit the forks, which is a pitty, it misses just a few mm of slack... I think Retyre should beware the customer and specify the total width of the tire with skin mounted (including zippers), maybe as a function of the wheel's width.

Awesome tyres!

I've used the base tyres for the last few weeks getting to and from work and they are awesome! They don't slow me down when I stop pedaling like my old tyres use to and in fact I'm now looking to upgrade my cassette and crank because now because I can't pedal fast enough to keep up with the speed increase with the tyres. Highly recommend using them and I'll be buying some skins soon

Will reTyre work on my bike?

To determine if your bike will fit reTyre, two measures you should consider are: the tire (rim) size and the fork clearance.

There are several ways of 
determining your tire size. If you already have a bike, you can check the size of your current tyres, the number is engraved on the tyre sidewall. If the information is not readable, you can measure the rim diameter and find corresponding size. If you are buying a new bike, check the tire and rim specification. 

After determining the size, you should make sure you have enough clearance for both reTyre One and Skin of your choice. Depending of the size, minimum clearance you need is as follows:

63 mm clearance for the 26” and 28” 

72 mm clearance for the 29” 

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