While tan sidewalls may be the hot tire trend, making them is not as easy as just changing the color. Teravail has been working on their formula for awhile now, with the main concern of creating a tire that is tubeless and air tight, but with the right color.
Now offered in four models and five sizes, tan sidewalls are ready for their close up – on your next ride. All tan sidewall tires are tubeless ready, and are only available in 60tpi Light & Supple casings.
Starting with the Sparwood 29 x 2.2″ bikepacking tire, the construction features a 60tpi Light and Supple casing for $75.
The Cannonball is available in tan sidewalls in both 700 x 35mm and 700 x 38mm options, both for $60.
As for the Rampart road plus tire, it too gets a tan sidewall in a 650b x 47mm size for $60.
The last of the tan sidewalls is the Coronado in a 27.5 x 3.0″ size which is sort of an ideal sandy conditions tire that still rides well on hardpack. This one sells for $75. In other Coronado news, Teravail also announced a new 26 x 4.0″ size with black sidewalls in either Light & Supple 120tpi ($115), or Durable 60tpi ($90).
New sizes can also be found in the Rampart series with new 700 x 28 and 700 x 32mm versions. Again, these are both available in Light & Supple 120tpi ($50) or Durable 60tpi ($60).
All of the tires are available at local retailers now.
