where shall we go today Get some new inspiration from where you roll, and go further into the world beyond that. As a tire manufacturer that supports such an inquisitive mind, there is no manufacturer more reliable than Panaracer of Japan. Making tires together is like riding together. We keep rolling based on our experiences and ideas.
Nowadays, it can be said that anyone can go anywhere, but not all of them are in a hurry. There must have been times when I continued my journey without rushing forward, and this seemingly endless road had an end, and I wondered if there was a cape with a strange name. I think it's best to step on the pedals leisurely.
No, but what the heck, we hear a voice calling us from beyond this big forest. A sweet, dubious scent wafts from the depths of the dark bushes. Is it a trap? may be dangerous. As we sniffed that scent, our eyes lit up with those of the glittering adventurer, literally turning off the road and being sucked into a roadless road.
Leaving aside the story of fighting giant centipedes, there are many faces to bad roads, from Suicide Forest to Volcano. Mushrooms are growing from the shadows of the fluffy fallen leaves. Or is it a highland covered in volcanic rocks with limited vegetation, fog or clouds? Come to think of it, our planet is still a planet, the universe is dynamic, and in other words life is a miracle itself.
Let's get back to the topic of tires, saying that tough, high-capacity ATB tires are extremely comfortable for such an immersive adventure ride.
The wide capacity means that it can handle any road surface, from on to off. And it goes without saying that it's comfortable because we don't care where we go. Wherever you go, where you've never been before, in search of scenery you've never seen before, put your pen in the map and keep going.
Making tires with Panaracer is like riding together. We keep rolling based on our experiences and ideas.
In the 1990s, the enjoyment of off-road bicycles became more and more hot, and the mountain bike cross-country race was finally adopted as an official event at the Atlanta Olympics (1996), making a leap forward in both name and reality as a standard activity.
At the same time, the competition to develop new products among parts manufacturers around the world was also heating up. When it comes to the Olympic events, the number of athletes who have converted from the world of road racing has increased. When it comes to a stage like the World Cup, athletes want to win, and spectators want even more speed.
A high-performance tire was required for parts where acceleration performance and top speed are required, rather than performance in places where there are few opportunities to overtake, such as downhills where tight sections continue. In 1997, Panaracer launched the "Mach SS" semi-slick type tire with a very good balance that achieves a high level of balance between lightness of rolling and grip in corners in order to respond to such high-speed racing. will be developed and debuted.(At that time, it was common to perform precise tire settings according to the road surface conditions, and a brother tire called "Mach SK (semi-knob)" was also released at the same time.)
Although the Mach SS was developed purely for racing in this way, the tread pattern that pursues the lightness of running does not lose the feeling of a motorcycle not only off-road but also on-road approaches up to that point. Once it was recognized that it was capable, it began to attract attention as a "fun tire" that could widen the path of the ride regardless of the road surface conditions.
It can be said that the realization of a truly all-terrain tire was an epoch making unique to Panaracer, which is originally good at touring. This gene was then passed on to the modern Gravel King series and derived into SimWorks' The Homage tire.
A Volummy tire with a thick construction called Gumwall that is extremely strong against sidecuts. In Japan, it's called "voryumi," but in America, it's pronounced like "valumi."It's Japanese-made English, but it might work for gluttons.
A rich lineup centering on thick sizes. Basic slick pattern. Tubeless compatible, stylish peanut butter side. It is the perfect tire for those who like to ride, eat, and fly.
An all-rounder with smaller knobs, higher density, lower center, and slightly raised sides. It rolls lightly while gaining traction even on climbs, and does not lose a high sense of grounding even when the bike is tipped over in a downhill corner. Each element such as tread pattern, compound, and casing are harmonized in a well-balanced manner to provide high durability in addition to high-quality ride. Of course it's tubeless compatible. Super delicious!
Considering simply rolling, the larger the outer diameter of the wheel, the better, and for sports cars, we have settled on the current size of 650B or 700C. However, when thinking about it as a tool, there are many things that have been designed with emphasis on being "compact". Even in a country as large as the United States, where automobiles are central, small bicycles are still valued as a useful tool when it comes to urban areas. With the 20-inch tire design, SimWorks wanted to meet the need for bicycles, which are a daily necessity, to have reliable performance and aesthetics.
