We just received our shipment of Grand Bois Hetre tires with white tread. Thank you for all who waited so patiently. Red ones are on the way, expected in a week or so. And black ones have been available all along. Here is how the white tread looks on a bike:
While I usually am not fond of colored tires, I have grown to like how the tire tread blends in with the fender, rather than showing a narrow black band between fender and tire sidewall…
By the way, Grand Bois thinks that the white tread should be marginally faster, as it contains more natural rubber. We haven’t tested this. We have tested the adhesion of the different-color treads in wet and dry, and found no difference to the black tread. They all stick great to wet and dry roads. They are among the grippiest rubber we have ridden.
