The Lamplighter is our modern E-bike and city performance tire designed to get you anywhere with ease - thanks to its Rubberforce R compound that balances speed, traction, and reliability. The Stage 7 Armor construction makes it nearly impervious to flats while our progressive tread pattern provides traction across varied pavement and light trail surfaces. The continuous center section is road-bike-fast, with micro-siping to clear water and improve wet traction and cornering.

The Lamplighter is available in tube-type construction and requires an inner tube.
