Faster, Longer-Lasting, and Fewer Flats
The all-new R3 is one tyre that can do it all. Fast enough for race day, yet durable enough for every day, the R3 is your go-to road tyre for great ride feel and lasting performance. Rethinking our research and design has resulted in new proprietary compounds and technologies for a do-it-all road tyre that rolls faster, lasts longer and protects better against flats.
Race day and everyday
Leading speed, confidence and durability make the R3 Hard-Case Light Road Tyre perfectly suitable for race day or everyday.
Bontrager's proprietary TR Speed Compound rolls faster. We went back to the drawing board and totally reworked our rubber compound to deliver a tyre that is faster in the lab and faster on the road.
The updated tread design, casing construction and all-new TR-Speed Compound deliver the perfect blend of speed, traction and tread life. Detailed testing shows significant improvement in wear rate so you can get that new tyre feel for longer – lots longer.
The improved Hard-Case Lite Puncture Protection adds in a Nylon105 breaker belt that offers increased protection against flats while maintaining a supple, smooth-rolling ride feel.
The R3's lightly treaded casing adds traction and cornering confidence. As the tyre size increases the traction becomes more pronounced, perfect for aligning tyre size with intended use.
