Buy tyres with your wheels and we’ll fit them for free
We’ve been riding the IRC Formula RBCC tubeless tyres for sometime, initially intrigued by the Rice Bran compound we are now pleased to offer IRC tyres on all our wheelsets.
The 25c IRC tyres come up true to size at 25.5mm when fitted on our Lark light wheels. Choose the RBCC for general riding and racing and the X-Guard for training and winter riding. If you prefer something wider try the 28c versions of these tyres in our tyres section.
