What we think of the tyre:
We are proud to be the sole online retailer of the Tannus puncture proof tyres. We’re so behind the tyre and the technology that all of us here at NipNip HQ choose to equip our commuter bikes with this super reliable, fit and forget, puncture proof tyre.
Sure they’re not as comfortable as a 100psi Continental GP4000s, but what do we really expect. These are by no means a top end, clincher, race tyre and were never designed to be raced.
The Tannus tyre is designed for those journeys when the last thing you want to deal with is pumping flat tyres up, getting punctures and worrying about what roads or even off road paths you might be taking.
You can expect to see 9,000 miles on these tyres. Which can be well over 2 years of carefree cycling for some users. Providing you aren’t skidding at every opportunity.
There are a few sizes available for the tannus tyre. There are sizes that will fit your 16″ Brompton bike or any 20″ wheel. 26″ MTB wheels and E-Bike wheels are catered for too. Road bikes sizes come in 700 x 23c, 700 x 28c (will only fit rims widths 13 – 16c) and the more all-round touring sizes 700 x 32c & 700 x 40c (will only fit rims 18 – 21c).
The grip that these tyres provide is nothing short of impressive. Many tyres that come standard on bikes can feel very skittish and slippery when the road gets wet, this can be very unnerving and dangerous. The tannus tyre doesn’t suffer from this at all.
The Tannus tyre is constructed using a special polymer compound. Not only does this mean that the ride quality is on par with many mid range tyres, the grip they provide is similar to top end tyres in the dry and wet. But most of all, the durability is just leagues above anything you have rode before.
If you are after the most durable, reliable and safest tyre out there, the Tannus Puncture Proof Tyre is the next step.
Tannus has recently been featured in the Cycling Weekly further pushing just how much of an impact this tyre is going to make on commuter cyclists.
