Semi-slick city specialist, the Shield APS is an affordable puncture resistant commuter for 26" mountain bikes containing a range of technologies.
Anti-Puncture System: A band of a special compound rubber placed between the tread and carcass to decreases the possibility of having a puncture due to its high structural strength. APS also increases the stiffness and strength in the crown area to help reduce drag and maintain excellent adhesion.
A highly reflective stripe on the sidewall that produces an extremely bright reflection of light for use in dusk and dawn, night, foggy and even rainy conditions for the entire service life of the tyre.
Tyre Abrasion Indicator: The integrated smily faces in the tread will turn to neural face at 60% of tread left and sad face with 10% tread remaining.
