The MTB tire is one of the most important components for handling, grip and braking on your bike.
Use of mountain bike tire:
Depending on the type and practical level, the mountain bike tire can be fitted with a tread with or without studs, of a more or less wide section and of a different diameter. For example, to prioritize grip, a tire intended for enduro or downhill will be wider than a tire designed for cross country.
Compatibility of a MTB tire:
There are three standard diameters of MTB tire: 26 inches, 27.5 inches and 29 inches, the section must correspond to the use but also be compatible with the width of the rim.
identify the type of assembly acceptable by the rim: tube or tubeless
choose the tread profile according to the use (smooth for the road and with crampons for all ground)
choose the section and compare it to the width allowed by the rim
choose the type of screed (rigid for permanent mounting, flexible for easy transport)
Assembly of a mountain bike tire:
Assembling an inner tube tire requires two tire levers and a foot or hand pump. On the other hand, a tubeless ready or tubeless MTB tire is mounted by hand, a compressor will be necessary to push the sidewalls back onto the rim and make it "click".
