Tough as nails

Thursday, August 14, 2014

When designing a flat-resistant tire, puncture protection is paramount. Utilizing an interwoven Polyamid matrix that is seamlessly bonded with the rubber compound, the full Armadillo tire line vastly outperforms the previous version in the nail-in-tread test. Because the Polyamid casing is so densely woven it prevents punctures from outside debris yet is also able to remain flexible enough for increased ride quality. Coupled with this durability and performance is a new tread pattern that offers excellent all weather traction. From the ground up, the new Armadillo tires were developed, tested and owned by Specialized.
