Comfort and Speed

  • Low rolling resistance
  • Excellent grip
  • Superior comfort
  • Light weight
  • Classic appearance
  • Clincher tires with the ride of a good tubular

"I have used Lierres on our 650B tandem conversion. They have a good ride and are grippy. Rear tire has worn down fairly well at 2500 miles and I estimate it is good for another 1,000."

The Lierre (pronounced 'LEE-air', French for 'ivy') is an ideal tire for bikes that don’t quite fit the wonderful Hetre. A full 38 mm wide, it provides 25% more air volume than a 34 mm-wide tire. Add the Grand Bois casing that is constructed like a quality racing tire, and you get speed and comfort that is unmatched by almost any other tire (except our Hetre).

365 g, clincher, folding bead. Nominal width: 650B x 36 mm.
Made in Japan.

$ 59


We recommend Schwalbe SV12 or SV14A (Superlight) tubes for the Lierre.
