Riding every day requires tires for ever-changing conditions. The Torchbearer is the American Classic road tire standard: a tire with a versatile tread pattern suited for almost everything a road bike can handle. Aggressive lunch ride or rainy slow roll, the Torchbearer delivers, and won’t hinder you from winning the town-line sprint. Stage 3S flat protection builds on our ultralight Stage 3 with an added microfiber composite bead-to-bead protection and a 120 TPI casing deliver a responsive ride no matter the pavement condition.
This tire is designed for hook-bead (crochet) rims that follow current E.T.R.T.O. standards. This tire is not intended for use with hookless (straight-side) rims.
