Product Details

Bontrager AW3 Hard-Case Lite Tire

Bontrager's AW3 Hard-Case Lite tire offers flat protection without sacrificing high-end road feel. Its sub-tread puncture barrier keeps you rolling so you can concentrate on putting in the miles. And, the Hard-Case Lite's high-speed tread compound provides optimal traction and low-rolling resistance no matter what the weather, so this tire is equally at home racing or spring training. It even has a unique bead that closes the gap between the tire and rim for improved aerodynamics.

    My favorite training tire

    By Tony D

    from Louisville, CO

    About Me Advanced

    Pros

    • Puncture Resistant
    • Durable
    • Good Value
    • Grippy

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Year Round Training

      Comments:

      I started riding the AW3s last year and they're my go-to training tire now. They're very durable and puncture resistant while still handling well in dry, wet, dirt, whatever. I've maybe had 2 flats in past 8000 mi and no issues with cracking or delamination that I've had with other brands. They feel best running the pressure a little lower than a race tire--I'm about 170lbs and run 95psi front, 100psi rear for the 25mm AW3. Highly recommend to anyone looking for high-performance training or fast touring tires.

      Most underrated performance tire out there

      By MNRider

      from Minnesota

      About Me Intermediate

      Pros

      • Very Compliant
      • Excellent Handling
      • Durable
      • Lightweight
      • Puncture resistant

      Cons

      • None

      Best Uses

      • Light Touring 32mm
      • General Road Riding 25mm

      Comments:

      This tire does it all. Lightweight, excellent handling, reasonably durable, very comfortable, with good puncture resistance. I've used Specialized All Condition Armadillos, Continental Gator Skins, and a few others but these are superior as an all around road or light touring tire. I highly recommend this tire.
