Introducing the all-new R3 family, a complete revamp of our most popular line of road tires. R3 brings race day speed with everyday durability. Compared to the original, the new R3 rolls faster, has a significantly longer tread life, and improved puncture protection. R3 also feature a light tread for added traction, confidence, and a fast modern look.
Proprietary TR-Speed compound
We added the engineering and testing resources to create an all-new proprietary compound, TR-Speed. TR-Speed makes for a faster rolling tire that also offers a 75% increase in tread life for performance that lasts.
Improved Hard-Case Lite puncture protection
We improved the R3’s puncture protection by using a more supple breaker belt made of a tightly woven Nylon105 in our proven Hard-Case Lite construction. The result is lighter tire, with better road feel, and a 12% increase in protection against punctures.
Lightly Treaded design
A lightly treaded design that gets more pronounced as the tire size gets larger ensures that the tires tread suits its intended use. The 23 is smooth and light, the 25 has a lightly recessed tread, the 28 gets external tread which is more pronounced on the 32 for added confidence across rougher roads.
