On kids' bikes, classic tyres (not made from plastic) guarantee good grip on the ground. But not all tyres are the same, so we're here to help you choose!
This article was originally published here.
You should choose your kids' bike tyre based on how it will be used and the size.
Whether it's for city cycling or BMX tricks, every discipline has its own kind of tyre!
FOR MOUNTAIN BIKING
You should choose a tyre with lugs that are grouped together along the central band and spread out on the sides.
FOR URBAN CYCLING
Choose a tyre with few lugs for better grip on roads and paths.
FOR BMX STREET BIKING
Choose a tyre with small lugs and a fairly wide section for maximum grip and cushioning when doing tricks.
FOR BMX RACING
Choose a tyre with more pronounced lugs for better grip on turns.
12, 14, 16, 20 or 24 inches: you'll find the tyre size on the side of your old tyre (in millimetres ETRTO 40-559 or in inches 24”x1.95).
