ALLROUNDERs in the aerodynamic premier class
Wolfgang Arenz has developed many award-winning racing bike tires in recent years and now combines all of his know-how in the new WOLFPACK RACE tire. The special composition of the latest high-end polymers creates a noticeably safer driving experience and ensures a feeling of absolute control. The ToGuard rubber compound in combination with the extremely fine nylon carcass and the aerodynamically optimized profile make the RACE one of the best tires in its class.
Wolfpack Tires with ToGuard Compound offer the trifecta of excellence creating a new standard in Bicycle tires.
ToGuard Compound offers increased grip with even lower rolling resistance and improved flat protection. Already adopted and raced by Top Pro teams such as Team Astana in 2019, Wolfpack Tires are proving their benefits in all environments.
ToGuard Compound is engineered for tread surface contact. It increases grip across the entire tread surface area, providing a tire that improves turning and stopping. Turn harder, slow down and stop faster. This allows the rider to reach a higher maximum edge of performance, enhancing overall speed and reducing total time.
Lower Rolling Resistance
Rolling resistance is not just a characteristic of grip, rolling resistance is most improved by reducing energy absorbed by tire deflection. Wolfpack Tires with ToGuard Compound absorb less deflection energy, providing reduced rolling resistance from all other tires using his previous compounds.
Superior Real-world Puncture Protection Design
ToGuard Compound is designed to be inherently puncture resistant. This is superior to other tires that use interior protection “belts” for a number of reasons:
- Other tires with a puncture protection belt have an exterior soft layer can hold tiny embedded sharp objects. If not immediately removed, the object will keep cutting into the belt until even the strongest belted tire goes flat. ToGuard resists embedding the object in the first place.
- Puncture protection belts are stiff because they try to offer more protection with a thinner layer. These cause stiffer overall tires which are uncomfortable to ride, and cause higher rolling resistance, slowing you down! ToGuard’s surface-to-shell compound protection enables more flexibility and lower rolling resistance.
- Belts don’t provide complete coverage, they only protect the belted area. On race tires, other tire makers only put protection in the tread, leaving sidewalls highly vulnerable. They make separate “tougher” tires with multiple belts. Those tires are slower, heavier and uncomfortable. ToGuard protects from bead-to-bead, making a light, fast tire with puncture resistance. No need for compromise.
