New mountain bike tires – Interbike 2013

New treads for all wheelsizes

There were a number of new and updated mountain bike tires on display at Interbike. Many of these new tires are offered in all three wheel sizes, 26in, 27.5in and 29in – a sign of just how quickly the 650b (27.5in) wheelsize has caught on.


A common theme among tire manufacturers for 2014 is the introduction of all-mountain tires with reinforced casings suitable for the rough and tumble world of enduro racing. Mud tires appear to be making a comeback as a result of the growing enduro race scene as well; both Michelin and Maxxis had new mud treads on display.
