Features

Race day and everyday

Leading speed, confidence and durability make the R3 Hard-Case Light Road Tyre perfectly suitable for race day or everyday.

Faster rolling

Bontrager's proprietary TR Speed Compound rolls faster. We went back to the drawing board and totally reworked our rubber compound to deliver a tyre that is faster in the lab and faster on the road.

More miles

The updated tread design, casing construction and all-new TR-Speed Compound deliver the perfect blend of speed, traction and tread life. Detailed testing shows significant improvement in wear rate so you can get that new tyre feel for longer – lots longer.

Fewer punctures

The improved Hard-Case Lite Puncture Protection adds in a Nylon105 breaker belt that offers increased protection against flats while maintaining a supple, smooth-rolling ride feel.

Added traction

The R3's lightly treaded casing adds traction and cornering confidence. As the tyre size increases the traction becomes more pronounced, perfect for aligning tyre size with intended use.
