Sometimes the greatest personal journeys involve long days, sleepless nights, towering mountain passes and racing to the next town before the café closes. For long-distance routes and the tenacious riders who travel them, we created the Sparwood.
The Sparwood has bikepacking deeply ingrained in its DNA, and is ready for any surface. When navigating routes comprised of jeep roads, twisty singletrack, gravel tracks, and paved connecting sections, we find that the 29x2.2” and 27.5x2.1" casings support a perfect balance of low rolling resistance, reduced weight, and excellent maneuverability.
The ideal tyres for Tour Aotearoa, Kopiko Aotearoa, the Kiwi Brevet and other long distance New Zealand Bikepacking adventures

The durable casing features a layer of woven aramid fiber reinforcement between the outer rubber and the inner casing. This material is twice as strong as Kevlar and lighter in weight than any competitive product. Located under the sidewall of the tyre, it provides moderate protection against abrasion and sharp gravel that may result in a flat tyre.
LIGHT & SUPPLE CASING
When extra puncture protection isn’t necessary, the light and supple casing offers decreased weight and a comfortable, ultra-supple ride quality at lower pressures when set up tubeless.
