A performance-oriented, reflective tire that's fit for your race bike. Why choose utility over performance, or vice versa, when you can have both?

LIT designed the 360 Ultra-Reflective as the ultimate training tire for those of us who spend a fair amount of time in the saddle before and after work. With its 9mm wide reflective sidewall, it's just the tire for riding after dark and it greatly increases the likelihood that cars will see you in low light conditions. Unlike other reflective tires, the 360 Ultra-Reflective is visible from practically directly in front and nearly directly behind. It will dramatically increase your visibility from the perspective of an approaching car when you need it most.

Don't be fooled though, this isn't your grandpa's reflective tire. The 360 Ultra-Reflective is a performance-oriented training tire that weighs in at only 250 grams. LIT designed the tire with a fast-rolling rubber compound and a stout puncture protection layer. Measuring 700c x 28mm, LIT's 360 Tire grips well and soaks up road imperfections, making it a great choice for bumpy or wet pavement. Whether you're looking for a tire to keep you more visible in and around the city, or you're trying to maximize your mileage after dark, the LIT 360 Ultra-Reflective is an ideal choice.

Though labeled as 700c x 28mm, we've actually found that these tires measure around 26mm wide on most road rims. This makes them a great option for road bikes where limited frame clearance is a concern, and also means they fit on commuting and touring bikes with fenders.

The 360 Ultra-Reflective comes in 700c x 28mm (ISO 28-622) and weighs 250 grams. Folding Bead. 127 TPI casing. Maximum inflation is 100 PSI/6.8 Bar.

I'm a diehard Gatorskin fan when it comes to my daily commuting bike. But my wife saw these when we were in the shop a couple months ago and thought the reflective sidewall was a good idea. I ride about 17 miles each way to the office and sometimes don't make it home before it gets dark. I was pretty skeptical about buying an unknown brand, but didn't want to argue with my sweetheart, so..

Well, I have to say I'm impressed. I've now got about 1500 miles on them and have had one flat after running over some serious glass (similar experience with Gatorskins). The traction and handling is great. They feel supple and responsive. Frankly, I don't care that much about the reflective stripe (although it does look pretty cool). What matters to me most is performance and durability and these tires do very well - at least as well as the Gatorskins in my experience. Even after 1500 miles, they appear to have plenty of wear left.

I've since recommended them to my buddies and when these wear out I'm buying another pair.

Very reflective. Good performance-oriented tire

I've had these tires on my commuter bike since last fall. I generally only ride this bike in the winter and when the weather is bad. I've put about 2000 miles on the tires and they've held up well. The reflective side walls get a bit grubby looking after a while but this doesn't seem to diminish their reflective properties very much. I had one flat during these miles, which is better than most of the tires I've tried.

The tires are pretty lightweight and supple - closer to the performance end of the spectrum. After 2000 miles, the rear is close to the end of its useful life. The front could last a good bit longer.

Based on what I've seen and experienced, I'd recommend these to anyone that is looking for a pretty good performance oriented tire for everyday riding. It's not going to beat a continental GP4000s in performance, or a Schwalbe Marathon Plus in durability, but it's a great tire for someone looking for a good all-around performer.

The tire actually measures closer to a 25 than a 28 which works will on most road bikes since 28 is a bit large for standard brake calipers. The ride is fairly supple which you'd expect from a 127 tpi tire. The rubber compound seems just about right, providing decent traction even in the wet, while still holding up to winter riding conditions. So far, I can't find anything to complain about. Even the reflective sidewall looks pretty slick with the LIT logos. Riding after dark, the tire really lights up giving me a lot more confidence that I'll be seen. My lights do a good job front and back, but from the side the reflective sidewalls really make a difference. I'm impressed.

After putting some miles on the tire, I think it's a decent tire. Not very heavy, rolls good, and is a breeze to install. The only exception was the big sidewall looked like a white wall tire on my dark bike. I guess the price you pay for safety.

Pick these up for the reflectivity. I didn't believe the package when I read no tools needed but it's for REAL. Easy to put on and easy to pull off, no levers needed. This is a big plus in my book as some tires are a PITA to change.

Downfall is that traction isn't the tires strongsuit. Slippery when raining and wet, way better now that it's summer.

After riding these tires for the past couple months or so I have been left wanting more. I installed these tires on my commuter replacing my Vittoria Randoneurs. The second day on them riding home from work my rear tire went flat.. ok, a staple, that would happen to any tire. I replace the tube and continue along my merry way. With out going into too much detail I got four more flats in the next week, all caused by different offending objects (small wire from steel belt radial, glass, more glass... and another staple.. seriously Portland knock it off with stapling things to telephone poles, I can't afford that many tubes), and a new tube was used each time.

As far as the ride quality, I felt that these tires were hard (actual consistency of tread rubber) and didn't hold the road near as well as I would have liked (I nearly went down in a corner because the tire lost traction).

I do like the reflective stripe however, It is bright, visible from pretty much any angle and BRIGHT ( yes I know I said that twice, but it is really bright.)
