Hi
Can you please explain the differences between the Folding and the Wire Bead options.
Many thanks

Hi,

The wire bead option uses a wire bead where the tyre sits onto the rim, this is cheaper but heavier and it also means the tyre is stuck in its tyre shape the whole time as the steel bead prevents it form folding. The folding tyres use a Kevlar bead instead of a wire one, this costs more, but is lighter and more flexible allowing the tyres to be folded up for packaging. The folding version still fits and stays on the rim in the same way, it is better as it is lighter and more compliant with bumps as the tyre is not so stiff.

Thanks.
