No more excuses - winter biking made easy!
reTyre Urban Winter is made of natural rubber with high elasticity that stretches over your tyre and therefore fits most 28” hybrid tyres.
This also means that reTyre attaches firmly, acting as part of the tyre!
For good traction on ice and snow you can quickly and easily attach your reTyre using our patented zipper mechanism.
Forget the old cumbersome tyre change – We have made winter biking easy!
We love doing things the simple way. If reTyre doesn’t fit your tyre just return it for free with the box you received it in!

How do I use reTyre?
Complete the one-time installation, and your are ready to ride!
Deflate the tyre just enough to fit the fastening strip.
|Insert fastening strips on both sides. They must follow the tyre's forward rotation-direction.|
Inflate the tyre to its recommended pressure, while you make sure the fastening strip stays in place.
|When needed:||When you need spikes, attach the surface. Attach both zippers before you start zipping along the tyre. For easier attachment; stretch the surface and alternate the zipping.||

What is reTyre made of?
The studded tyre surface is made of natural rubber of high quality with high wet friction. The rubber is treated with carefully chosen additives which results in better durability. Each surface has 156 specially designed studs with carbide cores that are impossible to wear down. The studs are designed to minimise weight and use aluminium casing to improve your biking experience.
The pattern on the surface are specially designed for urban biking, with a pattern that provides low friction while maximising traction.
The zipper used is custom designed and of great quality. The zipper uses plastic and nylon to increase lifespan and resist wear from salt. The choice of material means our zippers survive the harsh conditions of winter biking.
The average studded tyre weights approximately 1 Kg. Through careful design and material choice we have manged to keep reTyre at around 500g. We have also taken into account that there often is little space around a bike tyre and therefore reTyre Urban Winter adds only 4 mm to your tyre height.
