New Xpress Reflective

We got some of our venerable New Xpress 700c tires in with a new reflective sidewall stripe. These will help keep you safe at night and of course features our HyperTex casing to ward off punctures. Shown is the 32c size. I was running 28 New Xpress tires previously, and while the 32s are a big tire, I haven't noticed a lot of additional rolling resistance, and all that tire goes a long way towards taming even the crappiest of roadways. I am looking forward to some longer, brevet-style rides this spring and some cycle-camping/touring. The 32c size is great when you load up your bike, the bigger footprint and volume really helps stabilize the bike.
