Whether your urban bike is an inner city commuter or a beach trail cruiser, the tyres fitted will have a big impact on the ride quality and safety of your bike. When looking to replace or upgrade the rubber on your bike, tread pattern and tyre width are considerations worth taking into account.
Semi-slick tread patterns are most commonly found on urban bike tyres. The pattern will help dissipate water when riding in wet conditions and provide good grip on the changeable surfaces often faced by commuters. Urban bike tyres will also often feature a sturdier wire bead construction to help keep costs in check.
700c tyres are the most commonly found diameter on modern urban bikes, however, there are other options to sit the likes of older 26- inch mountain bikes, European bikes or beach cruisers.
