Japanese company Panaracer have been manufacturing bicycle tyres since 1953. All R&D is done on site and new tyre designs can be quickly developed and tested as well as constant updates to existing products as technology and materials improve. Sponsorship of professional cycling teams also provides an ideal proving ground for their products in both road and mountain biking.
Innovation is key to Panaracer with many ground breaking tyre designs developed. The Smoke and Dart were some of the most iconic mountain bike tyres ever made and the recent collaboration with Cedric Gracia ensures constant development at the highest level continues.
