Intense Tyre Systems has announced the arrival of its Super Lightweight Foldable Beaded Micro Knobby Tires.
Making the most of the Micro Knobby trend in BMX, these tyres feature a foldable Kevlar Bead and a single ply ultra light weight casing.
The weight of the tyre has dropped approximately 50 grams according to the firm, with the new ITS foldable Kevlar Bead reducing the rotational weight of the product.
Featuring over 5,000 knobbys per tyre, the Micro Knobby is made from a C3 Homegrown Rubber Compound.
20 x 1Ã¢â‚¬Â = 190 Grams
20 x 1 1/8th = 230 Grams
20 x 1 3/8th = 265 Grams
20 x 1.5 = 280 Grams
20 x 1.75 = 375 Grams
20 x 2.0 = 465 Grams
They also offer a 26 x 2.25″ version for mountain bike Dirt Jump applications, but it’s hardly lightweight at 710g. Ã‚Â Read “more” for a close up picture detail of the micro knobs, you know you want to see them…
