Ladies and gentlemen, thank you very much for your patience! Finally we are going to release our, SimWorks x Panaracer, new tire called ‘VOLUMMY’ which we showed a prototyped one to you at NAHBS 2017.
It was February that we participated in NAHBS Salt Lake City 2017. We tired to put a cutting seat logo on a logo-less sample tire for the show. It has been 6 months and time flies so fast. In Japan, so many cicadas are chirping, summer sunbeam burns us all, immediately after that we get evening super heavy shower like hurricane…
Our goal was to make a ‘tubeless’ tire at this time. We also had tons of requests from our customers at NAHBS 2017. By researching the market, we put all those voices into the design. As you can see on the side of the tire, it shows the words of ‘Tubeless Compatible’.
For 700c model, we use zylon which is stronger than usual aramid for a tire bead. A higher air pressure tubeless tire (650kPa / 95 psi).
On the sidewall, we use gumwall material. Since most of the people who do bike touring told us, “We have problem with a usual tire that the sidewall gets torn up easily”. We know that a light tire is much more comfortable, but once you find out that it’s torn up, then you won’t be able to continue your journey at all. SimWorks Original color ‘Peanut Butter’ sidewall has high durability.
|27.5 x 1.75″ / 590g / $54.00-(USD)||27.5 x 1.5″ / 560g / $54.00-(USD)||700 x 32c / 470g / $58.00-(USD)|
VOLUMMY has 3 sizes as you can see above. 100% tubeless compatible for all of them. If you are planning to head over yourself below the horizon, then you definitely need to pick up SimWorks x Panaracer VOLUMMY tire for sure.
※Only 700x32c will be available in next week.
