For Bikes without Brakes. Specially developed for "fixie" bikes where transmission braking can lock the back wheel and is extremely tread abrasive. Durano Skid can withstand such "abuse" considerably longer than other tires thanks to its deeper and abrasion resistant tread. Its strong rubber-coated side wall also affords better durability.
Bicycles without brakes are illegal in certain countries.
Folding A folding tire is a special version of the clincher tire. The wire bundle is replaced by a bundle of kevlar strands. This enables the tire to be folded up and depending on the tire size, makes it about 50-90 g lighter.
