Race day and everyday

Leading speed, confidence, and durability make the R3 Hard-Case Light Road Tire 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 tire 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 tire feel for longer—lots longer.

Fewer flats

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 tire size increases the traction becomes more pronounced, perfect for aligning tire size with intended use.

Go tubeless

A properly set up tubeless system lets you run lower tire pressure for better traction, added confidence, and a smoother, faster ride.

Better together

Bontrager offers a complete tubeless system including wheels, tires, sealant, valves, and rim strips. Every part of this setup is designed to work smoothly together, for the best in performance and ease of use.
