Do You Very Know The Characteristics Of Mountain Bike Tires?

Do you very know the characteristics of mountain bike tires?

Mountain bikes are specially designed for off-road (hills, trails, wilderness and gravel roads). Cycling mountain bike excursions and cross-country are now more and more popular among young Chinese people. The sport of fashion is popular with people. Mountain bikes have higher requirements for tires. How much do you know about mountain bike tires? Let's take a look at the characteristics of some mountain bike tires.


First of all, let's talk about the structure of the tire. The open tire of the bicycle is the main body of the tire formed by the mesh cover. It is attached with a layer of tire skin to wear when rolling, and two tires are embedded to fix the tire. On the wheel frame, this forms the main structure of the tire. Since bicycle tires are relatively thin and easy to be puncture or cut, most of them will add an explosion-proof layer between the tire skin and the mesh cover to increase the strength of the tire. Every time there is a social news of a large vehicle causing a car accident due to a flat tire, the problem of regenerative tires will always be reviewed. The so-called regenerative tire is to remove the worn tire skin, retain the original carcass, and then re-attach a layer of tire skin. Don't feel as if it is very unreliable, in fact, the tire is like this.


When it comes to the characteristics of tires, it is nothing more than these aspects: rolling resistance, grip, road feel, wear resistance, explosion protection, weight and so on. In addition, two often overlooked features are power transmission and manufacturing quality. Let's introduce these features in a more general way.


Rolling resistance: When the wheel starts to roll, you will want it to roll down and not slow down. Of course, this is impossible because it will face wind resistance and other resistance. The smaller the rolling resistance of the tire, the easier it is to maintain the speed. In other words, if you use the same force to step on it, the speed will increase, and you don't need to increase your strength for acceleration. Therefore, the smaller the rolling resistance, the better.


Grip: The best understanding of grip is slipping. When cornering or braking, the grip of the tire is a key. Even if it is linear acceleration, it will require grip when the force is strong. Therefore, the bigger the grip, the better.

Abrasion resistance: Today's bicycle tires are generally expensive, and you don't want to use expensive things. If you need to use them, you need to consider wear resistance. The better the wear resistance, the longer the mileage that the tire can be used. Anti-blasting tires can be said to be the most common faults encountered in bicycle leisure sports, and in order to reduce weight, the tire skins tend to have only a thin layer, which is not easy to withstand the puncture of stones, glass and branches. Most outdoor tires have an explosion-proof design to prevent foreign objects from piercing the mesh cover.

Weight: If you are pursuing lightweight, then you are accounting for the weight of any spare part on the bicycle, and the inner and outer tires are also a lightweight target. Lightweight tires can reduce the weight by as much as one or two hundred grams. Regardless of the effect of reducing the weight of the tire, it is worthwhile to see that the light weight of the tire is lighter. Lightweight tires are incredible, and a weight difference can reach 50-100 grams. In fact, lightweight tires also bring a number of performance advantages, first taking advantage of some of the cheaper climbs, and because of the lower inertia, it is easier to accelerate. The reason for the weight loss is mostly due to the thinner tire skin and the mesh cover, and even the explosion-proof layer is omitted. The result is a more sensitive road surface response, a more comfortable road feel, and lower rolling resistance.


The functional and safe mountain bike allows you to enjoy the off-road passion and experience the thrill of high-end configuration.
