After one time installation you are reTyre ready and can adapt to any road condition in matter of seconds, just by zipping on the appropriate Skin.

reTyre One (Wire) is durable, fast-rolling asphalt tyre, perfect for your daily rides, road cycling and commuting, while integrated zipper lets you quickly adapt the tyre surface. Puncture protection and reflective stripe assure you get the best quality wire tyre and stay safe on your commute.


Special Features:

Fast Rolling

The fast-rolling, slick tread maximizes traction on asphalt roads and ensures a smooth ride.

Integrated Zipper

Our patented zip-on technology includes durable zippers integrated onto the side walls.

Exceptional Rubber

Our unique NXT rubber compound has the optimal balance between performance and durability.

SIZE INFORMATION

26" = 42-559/26x1.6 
28" = 42-622/28x1.6 
29" = 50-622/29x2.0 

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

PRODUCT WEIGHT

Size 26": 630g 

Size 28": 700g 
Size 29": 790g 

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 tire.

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.

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

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.

I am new to winter biking! Is there anything special I should know about using the studded tyres?

The only difference is that the 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. After the running-in period, use the studded skins normally while on snow/ice and use the base tyre for dry periods.

I lost some studs this season, is this normal?  

Yes, if you are actively riding in winter season it is perfectly 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!

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.
