Introducing the new IRC Formula Pro S-Light TLR tyre.
This new tyre is lighter than the previous version and uses the new RBCC II compund for improved grip. The tyre features bead protection and a new super light casing so this is the fastest tyre in the new IRC range. This tyre is has no latex inner lining so sealant will be sealing the casing. That one way it saves mass. The other is thinner sidewalls over its cousins in the Formula Pro series.
The new RBCC is used in all FORMULA PRO series products. This tyre
The RBCC, which is loved by many for its firm grip through the bends and in wet conditions, has been used in all tyres in this series. While rolling resistance is reduced, while grip and abrasion resistance have been improved.
Tread pattern to enhance
Continuing from the previous tyre this time the center has adopted the Sugime pattern. The behavior near the limit, such as the start of tire slippage, is easier to spot and therefore more controllable. In addition, rolling resistance was reduced by adding four grooves in the circumferential direction, and the tyre is more are on uneven road surfaces as a result.
Compatible with disc brakes and wide rims
The tubeless tire, which has a structure in which the tire bead is pressed against the rim from the inside with air to retain air, is characterized by high safety due to the high degree of adhesion between the rim and the tire, but with the new FORMULA PRO series, the key is Further strengthening around the bead. We have succeeded in further improving safety so that it can withstand the stronger force applied by the disc brakes and pothole impacts. In accordance with the tubeless rim standards reviewed in 2019, it is also compatible with wide rims.
SizingThe Formula Pro series tyres unlike many other brands run true to size on a 19mm internal width rims which are used on our BORG series road wheels. 25mm tyres inflate to 25mm wide and 22mm tall. 28mm tyres are 28mm wide and 24mm tall. 30mm tyres are 30mm wide and just over 25mm tall
25mm tyre is 220g, 28mm tyre is 250g and 30mm tyre is 275g.
80psi is the suggested max pressure. IRC state a max pressure of the sidewalls which half the max pressure at which blow off occurs in tests. I.e 90 to 115 psi means blow off occurs at 180 to 230 psi. Hense my max suggested pressure. 60 to 80 psi works well for most people.
COVID 19 update. Overseas shipping is now with a courier only. UPS or Parcel force.
Orders placed in the afternoon normally get sent the next workday where possible. Orders placed before noon are often sent the same day but this is not guaranteed. Priority is given to Royal Mail Special delivery items always.
