Tires are one of most important accessory on a bicycle. The quality of pneumatic does dictate the quality of a ride, low Thread Per Inches (TPI) and cheap rubber will definitely translate in poor riding performance like poor grip, loss of energy output and lower comfort.
After more than 25 years of combined racing and testing of most if not all brand of tires I have ended with what I think are the best tires.
The René Herse (Aka Compass) are the most comfortable and tires to be fitted on the Titanium bikes I design. After testing them it became clear the tires were designed to match my frames. The quality of the grip and smooth comfort are simply fantastic.
As a result Compass tires are the officially recommended tires of DMCX bikes.
