Islabikes introduces cyclocross tyres

Even little rippers need quality tyres

Do you have a little rider who can't get enough cyclocross fun? Islabikes, maker of lightweight, high-performance bikes for kids, has introduced three sizes of cyclocross tyres named Gréim (say: ga-rhyme). The name means ‘grip’ in Scottish Gaelic.

The idea behind the Gréim tyres was to provide quality tyres for smaller riders. Both versions feature a tight center tread to reduce rolling resistance on hard pack with more aggressive side knobs for mud shedding and excellent grip in the corners.

Islabikes' Greim cyclocross tyres are available in three sizes
