How to check your current tyre size?

Take a look at the sidewall of your current tyres and you’ll see one or two sets of figures;

One is the traditional size like 700x28c or 27.5x2.2. The first figure is the tyre diameter(size). The second is tyre width. Note: road bike sizes are in mm, MTB sizes are in inches.

The other set of figures you may see is ETRTO sizing like this 28-622. The first number here is tyre width while the second number relates to wheel diameter.

Here is a comparrison chart for traditional and ETRTO sizing to help you choose the correct tyre size.

Will this tyre fit my wheel?

Your new tyre must be the same diameter as your current one (to fit your wheel rim).

Then, you need a choose a tyre which will fit your frame.

Road bike tyres are generally 21 – 28mm wide

MTB tyres can range from 1.5”-5”

To make things complicated road tyres are measured in mm, while MTB tyres are in inches.

How wide is too wide

You want to leave at least 4mm clearance between your frame and tyres to prevent rub and allow for mud clearance.

Measure the following areas on your frame:

Fork crown (top)

Brake calipers (make sure you squeeze them)

Chainstays

Seatstays

Subtract 4mm and you’ll have the maximum width your frame can handle.

Continental Tyre Guide

 

Continental Hybrid Bike Tyre Guide

With over 100 years of manufacturing experience, Continental hybrid bike tyres offer the reliable performance you need for cycling on less than perfect road surfaces. See the range of technologies that make their hybrid bike tyres the perfect choice for urban cycling and commuting as well as touring.


Tyre Types & Protection

PlusBreaker

These tyres offer the highest level of puncture protection against objects piercing the tread. Plus Breaker is a layer of special highly elastic rubber sits just underneath the tread. This successfully stops all types of foreign objects from getting through to the inner tube below. Even a drawing pin can’t get through the PlusBreaker layer.


PolyX Breaker

PolyX Breaker is a densely woven Polyester fibre layer that sits beneath the tread of the tyre. The polyester fibre layer is tightly woven crosswise and is extremely resistant to foreign objects penetrating through the casing. This puncture reducing technology does not adversely affect rolling resistance.


Vectran Breaker

Vectran breaker represents the pinnacle in puncture protection. Highly resistant to puncture and cuts, Vectran breaker doesn’t slow the tyre down. Vectran is a liquid crystalline polymer (LCP) that is spun from Vectra liquid polymer and processed into a multistrand thread. Vectran has an enormous tear resistance at a very low weight and offers the ultimate under-the-tread protection.


DuraSkin

DuraSkin is an ultra-lightweight cut resistant sheath that wraps around the tyre casing. Designed to protect the sidewalls and tread from actual cuts and slashes on the road, this technology is found in all Gatorskin tyres. DuraSkin tyres stand out with their brown sidewalls.


Hardshell

With a wider PolyX breaker layer combined with DuraSkin sidewalls, Hardshell-ProTection offers outstanding puncture protection. The three-ply layer with 60 TPI carcass covers the entire tyre and makes it a real bastion against urban detritus. Hardshell tyres are the flagship puncture protection racing tyres.


EXTRA Puncture Belt

The EXTRA Puncture Belt offers reliable puncture protection for everyday use. This rugged rubber breaker, combined with extra rubber in the tyre sidewall ensures a high level of resistance to flats and sidewall abrasions.


SafetySystem

The SafetySystem is an Aramid reinforced fabric layer that sits under the tread of the tyre and offers lightweight puncture protection. The flexible layer adjusts quickly to the surface below so doesn’t affect the performance of the tyre, so you get a fast rolling and comfortable tyre with some puncture protection.


Safety Plus

Combining the SafetySystem Breaker with a highly elastic material, Safety Plus technology is ideal for e Bikes. Extremely puncture and cut resistant, the elasticity of the tyre offers especially low rolling resistance. Safety Plus is adapted for higher acceleration and faster cornering speeds.


Puncture ProTection

Tyres with the Puncture ProTection breaker are the most affordable way to protect against flat tyres. This robust Rubber breaker combines with the rubber-reinforced sidewalls of the tyre to guarantee a high puncture and wear protection. No frills tyres with a clear focus and durability.


ECO

The ECO energy saving tyres are optimized for e bikes offering extra durability to cope with the additional drive force. These tyres offer low rolling resistance and good puncture protection thanks to their extra high-quality construction.
