Bike 26″ Tyres – As with most bike wheel naming conventions, the term ‘26 inch‘ does not refer to the diameter of the wheel itself, but rather the approximate outside diameter of the tire that fits this wheel size. The actual ISO diameter of a traditional 26″ wheel is 559 millimeters.

Bike tyres are essential for cycling and most bikes need inner tubes too. A new bike tyre can transform the way your bike rides and even reduce the chances of getting a puncture. Mountain bike tyres are available for different wheel sizes, so there are 27.5” (650b) tyres and 29” tyres. Road bike tyres like the Continental Gatorskin are 700c. When buying bike inner tubes, you need to match the bicycle tyres size. A 27.5” tyre needs a 27.5” inner tube.

As well as road and MTB tyres we stock tyres for hybrid bikes and turbo trainer tyres as well as kids bike tyres for all wheel sizes. Continental bike tyres are very popular, and we also stock tyres from all the other big brands like Maxxis and Schwalbe. Tubeless tyres are popular on both road and mountain bikes. Used with tubeless sealant they can self-heal small punctures, so you don’t get a flat.
