SwiftTire 27 x 1 3/8 inch Tires for Touring Bicycles

SwiftTire is proud to announce a touring tire in 27 x 1 3/8 size.  Called the “Sand Canyon“, it’s available in black and tan sidewalls, both 66 TPI as this has proved to be the best balance for weight, ride quality, and durability.  A supple tire is made by more than high TPI, the tread comes into play, as does using a matching Panaracer tube.  Our very first batch of the black sidewalls were at 120 TPI to test this out over time and across many customers.  No perceptible difference other than the 66 TPI casing could take more rock abuse.    Compared to the weight of a loaded touring bike, the tire weight difference is too slight to be noticed.

The tan tires are displayed on this vintage Trek 620 touring bicycle.  We made this tire specifically to bring back all of the Trek 520, 620, and 720 models out of the garage and onto the terrain.  Bring on the rough tours, this tire has the confidence to match!
