WINTER TRAVELER SKIN

reTyre Winter Traveler gives you the opportunity to choose the bike all year-round. This skin will get you safely from point A to B on your daily commute, even through the winter months. Special configuration ensures that 4 studs are always in contact with the ground, but special design ensures low rolling resistance for the commute. 

reTyre skins bring you the flexibility and convenience you need to cycle with confidence and serenity wherever you want, whenever you want it. Winter Traveler enables you to cycle longer in the fall and earlier in the spring, despite the morning frosts and varying weather conditions. If road conditions change during the day, simply remove Winter Traveler skins and continue cycling on the reTyre One* base tyre. 

*reTyre One base tyre is sold separately.

Siping

Siping increase the number of edges on the knobs, which enhances the traction on icy roads.

160 Dual Compound Studs

With 160 dual compound studs this is our lightest winter skin. Designed to achieve maximum penetration and utilization of each stud.

Winter Rubber

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

 26'' = 50-559/26x2.0

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?

Icy urban roads, light snow 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!
