Wall Colour: Black or Tan
Goodyear Bicycle Tires proprietary design that features all the benefits of a Tubeless Ready (TLR) tire with additional air retention properties.
A multi-compound material layer is added to the tire casing, allowing for improved air retention while providing additional puncture and cut protection with minimal weight increase. Our unique design means more sealant remains after installation, ready for the moment you need it.
Utilizing a finer thread fabric, our 120 tpi casing uses less rubber – making the tire more supple and faster rolling, with improved traction.
UNDER-TREAD BREAKER BELT
This is a layer of additional puncture protection located under the tire’s tread cap. Tires utilizing our R:Shield offer excellent puncture protection while their sidewalls remain supple to ensure high performance.
