More fun, fewer punctures

Bontrager’s all-new AW3 delivers best-in-class defence against flats. These performance road tyres have 78% better puncture protection than their predecessors, a long-lasting tread and the right traction for fast, confident rides on any road in any season.

The AW3 can prevent catastrophic punctures from glass, nails, tacks, rocks, gravel, potholes and other ride-ending road debris.

We put AW3 Hard-Case Lite through exhaustive testing, working with Wheel Energy (the industry benchmark for third-party tyre-testing) to independently validate the puncture protection improvements in the all-new AW3 family.

The results speak for themselves: the new AW3 Hard-Case Lite outperforms its predecessor by 78% and rolls with the market’s most popular best-in-class tyres.

Two levels of protection

Choose the lively feel of the Hard-Case Lite or the extra durability of Hard-Case puncture protection. Both rely on an improved subtread layer consisting of an aramid/nylon weave that gives the best of both materials, best-in-class puncture protection from aramid and a great road feel from the nylon.

2. Long-lasting TR-Endure rubber compound for thousands of miles of confident rides
3. Smooth-rolling, lightly treaded design with siping channels for all-weather traction
4. Reinforced chafer strip for additional sidewall and bead protection
