We have been careful to consider all of these factors in our 'SIP Performer tyre' and according to the feedback we have received so far from you, our customers, we have been successful!

This should satisfy the tuners amongst us, as well as the legal eagles. We have also included a Tyre Wear Indicator in the form of notches slightly raised from the bottom of the tread profile.

The supplementary 'reinforced' rating has been include to reassure those not completely fluent with the meaning of all current, almost hieroglyphic, tyre sidewall markings. This means that this tyre can be safely used with both conventionally tubed wheels and more modern tubeless wheel systems.
The 3.50/10 version has already proved its worth amongst other race standard tyres and the 3.00/10 size, with a similar tread profile, has become the first choice for all performance orientated small-frame riders.
