What types of road bike tyres are there?
Most bikes come with tube-type tyre set-ups that rely on an inner tube to hold air. For most riders, this is the best place to start when looking for replacement tyres. Some higher-performance tyres may be tubeless ready, meaning they don't need to be used with tubes. Instead, they can 'go tubeless' by combining them with tubeless-ready wheels and sealant for a boost in performance. There are also tubular tyres, used mostly by professional road racers that have a tube sewn into the tyre.
