Its rubber compound is based off the one found in their PRO4 Grip road tire so you know you'll have traction you can depend on. This Protek Urban model features an aramid puncture protection layer to keep you rolling over debris-laden city streets, and a reflective sidewall keeps you visible to cross traffic. 20" x 1.5" dimensions. Built with a non-folding steel bead. Claimed weight of 385 g.

Great recumbent tire.

If you ride a recumbent with a 20 inch front (or even rear) tire, you need look no further than this tire. Very tough, grips and handles well. If you're used to a 100lb front tire pressure, I can assure you that you won't notice much dif using the 73psi max pressure this tire is rated for. (Knocking on wood...) so far, only 1 flat from a goathead that just managed to get in from the side, and missed the liner. Only downside of this tire, it is a PIG to get on and off the rim, due to the toughness of the sidewall construction.

But that goes with the territory, and this tire should serve you well. Until I can go Uncle Stans tubeless on my front tire as I will be on my rear 26 wheel, this will have to do.
