reTyre Updates Its Modular Bike For Better-Fitting Tread Swaps On The Fly

If you’re a year-round cyclist, your life just got easier. Norwegian company reTyre has released the updated version of its modular bike tire system, and your days of time-consuming bike tire changes may be over.

The reTyre system works on a deceptively simple but highly clever concept. Starting with a base tire — the Wire or the Premium — users can attach any one of the four tread-altering skins via a zipper. The Trail Rider skin is good for tough trails and wet surfaces, the Gravel Chaser is built for dirt roads, the Winter Traveler is made for urban winter cycling, and the Ice Racer contains carbide studs that are ready for harsh ice and snow. All of the skins can easily be zipped on and off the base tire within one minute, offering flexibility and convenience to suit your cycling needs. The updated versions offer a tighter fit and smoother ride compared to previous generations, meaning your skinned-tires should feel more like standard tires but with far less hassle. The system is available to purchase now from reTyre’s website, with base tires starting at $35 and skins starting at $46.

Purchase: $35+
