Tips & Info

Technologies (casings, compounds, etc.)

VEE Tire Co. comes from a long tradition in the tire industry. The parent company, VEE RUBBER, has been producing OEM automobile, motorcycle and bicycle tires since 1977 and remains the leading manufacturer of rubber high performance tires in Thailand. VEE Tire Co benefits from this resource by leveraging research and development in other tire industries as well as the ability to quickly produce prototypes and innovative test concepts.

It's all about the mix

Please note: If you are using two different models on the front and rear wheels (e.g. Snap WCE and Flow R-Two as a bike park combination), then the rear tire should always have the harder rubber compound.
The compounds are sorted from soft to hard

Top40 Compounds (Top40)

From our Tackee Compound, the rider expects a slower rebound to maintain grip on roots and rocks. Then the Top 40 Compound was created to be the softest compound Vee Tire Co. has ever developed. More control, more comfort and more confidence on any terrain!

Tackee Compound (TC)

This compound is one of the softest compounds and makes for a fun tire as it sticks to all mountain and enduro segments. Unlike other soft compounds offered by competitors, the Tackee compound offers the smallest rebound for more control when downhill. This compound has a low hardness of 48 A.

Fast-50 Compound (Fast50)

Fast 50 represents the golden mean between high rolling speed and good
Cornering traction. Fast 50 is great for dry conditions and its versatility means this fast compound is ideal for use as a rear wheel on an enduro bike.

Multipurpose Compound (MPC)

The Multipurpose Compound offers the widest range of all Vee Tire Co materials as it is designed for all terrains. This compound allows for durability and extends the life of the tire with a durometer of 56A.

Dual Control Compound (DCC)

The Dual Control Compound features two types of materials for speed and control. With a hardness of 56A in the center and a lower 48A on the sides, this tire allows for fast rolling resistance with excellent cornering characteristics.​

Silica Compound (SC)

Silica Compound is a technology from the automotive and motorcycle industry that offers excellent performance even in colder conditions. This soft material maintains its low resistance and flexibility at all temperatures with a rating of 57 A on the hardness scale.

Energetic Compound (EnC)

The Energetic Compound has been specially developed for urban trekking. This compound is resistant to punctures and has a hardness of 60A. This allows excellent rolling resistance on both traditional and e-bikes, to conserve either your energy or that of your battery.​

E-Ctrl Compound (E-Ctrl)

The E-Ctrl Compound is our brand new eMTB compound that offers excellent rolling resistance at high speeds and exceptional cornering grip. E-Ctrl uses our efficient 60a Energetic Compound for the central tread, offering long life and lower rolling resistance, but with our race-proven Top 40 compound on the side knobs for cornering grip and predictability at the highest level.​

Low Specific Gravity Compound (LSG)

The Low Specific Gravity Compound is incredibly light. Designed for BMX and racing, it allows for fast speeds with a hardness of 66A.

Strong tire casings

The tire structure

A bicycle tire consists of three basic elements: the carcass, the bead and the tread.
The core of the tire determines the tire diameter and ensures that it sits securely on the rim. The core of the tire usually consists of a bundle of wire. In folding tires, a ring made of aramid fibers is used instead of wire.
The carcass is the “framework” of the tire. The textile fabric is coated with rubber on both sides and cut at a 45 degree angle.

Enduro Core

The 1-layer cover combined with reduced apex strength is the perfect weight compromise to meet the requirements of the Enduro and Super Trail category. The Enduro Core is the right choice to withstand descents while maintaining climbing properties.

GXE Core

Our 1.5-ply casing with Apex inserts, bead reinforcement and B-Proof Nano is the perfect blend of traction and weight for enduro and all-mountain riding.
The GXE Core was inspired by our successful Gravity and Enduro Core technologies, combining the best parts into a fast and agile construction.
Suitable for weekend bikers right up to the professionals of the Enduro World Series.


This complex casing combined with 2-layer and Synthesis technology offers three-layer protection. Gravity Core is the highest level of protection and is designed to remain agile enough for downhill riding, while still offering the highest level of durability.​

DH Core

Developed for the rigorous demands of the UCI World Cup, this complex carcass combines a 2-layer construction, bead reinforcement, apex inserts and our Synthesis sidewall technology for maximum protection.
The DH Core is designed to give riders confidence and maneuverability for downhill riding while providing ultimate durability.
If you are going for the ultimate groove, you should choose the DH Core.


This special fabric provides additional puncture and cut protection. Adapted from road tire technology, Synthesis is lighter than standard casing, improves performance and has a premium aesthetic appearance.​

B-Proof puncture protection

The B-Proof casing features a special material that provides additional protection without increasing weight. Almost identical to a fabric gasket, the belt is paper thin but has extreme strength. This flexible protection is ideal for riding in all conditions and prevents tears and punctures.​

The Override Technology

1. The Override carcass is 3 times stronger than our
B-Proof aramid belt and 2 times stronger than the
than the B-Proof+ aramid belt.
<br>2. Using a lower TPI value provides better puncture, cut and abrasion resistance.
<br>3. It is a little heavier, but since our target customers
If you are a rider with fast e-bikes with high-speed motors, this should not be noticeable.


In addition to the carcasses (cores) mentioned above, there are also various different fabric thicknesses available. The higher the TPI number, the thinner the wall and more flexible the tire. Thin-walled tires are lighter, have less rolling resistance, but are more prone to punctures.

Test results of the tire tests

Tire testing is a key component for mountain bike enthusiasts to evaluate the performance and versatility of different tire models. In reputable magazines such as MTB News, MTB Rider Mag and Dirtmountainbike, as well as other leading publications, these tests are carefully conducted to provide riders with an informed basis for making decisions.

These tests examine various aspects of tire performance, including traction on different surfaces such as mud, rock and forest floor, rolling resistance on different surfaces, handling in corners and on technical trails, and the durability and reliability of the tire in demanding conditions.

The tests in these magazines are not only informative but also inspiring as they showcase the latest innovations and developments in the mountain bike tire industry and help riders take their riding experience to the next level.

Differences between clincher, folding and tubeless tires

The different types of bicycle tires - clincher, folding and tubeless tires - each have specific characteristics and uses that are due to their design and function. Here are the main differences and characteristics:



  • Structure: There is a wire in the tire bead that gives the tire its name and holds it to the rim hook.
  • Weight: Higher weight compared to folding tires.
  • Compatibility: Optimized for use with conventional tubes and rims.
  • Puncture protection: Often provided with a reinforcing rubber layer.
  • Price: Cheaper than folding tires.


  • Cheap price.
  • Large selection.
  • Easy installation on conventional rims.


  • Heavier weight.
  • Not foldable.
  • Usually not tubeless compatible.

Folding tires


  • Construction: Instead of a wire, flexible aramid fibers (e.g. Kevlar) are used in the bead, which makes the tire foldable.
  • Weight: Lighter than clincher tires, with a weight saving of about 50-100 grams.
  • Compatibility: Can be used with both tubes and tubeless if marked “Tubeless ready”.
  • Performance: Better driving characteristics due to the lower weight.


  • Lower weight.
  • Improved driving characteristics.
  • Easier to transport because it is foldable.
  • Mostly tubeless compatible.


  • More complex assembly for “tubeless ready” models.
  • More expensive than clincher tires.

Tubeless tires


  • Construction: No tube required; the tire seals together with the rim.
  • Compatibility: Tires and rims must be marked as tubeless compatible (Tubeless ready, TLR).
  • Sealant: Use of sealant to seal small holes while driving.


  • Very good puncture protection, as no tube defects (e.g. snakebites) occur.
  • Lower weight as the hose is eliminated (up to 200 grams saved).
  • Best possible driving characteristics due to lower rolling resistance and the ability to drive with lower air pressure.


  • More complex conversion and assembly.
  • Regular maintenance required (replacement of sealant).

Conclusion of the comparison

  • Clincher tires: Ideal for everyday bikes and e-bikes in the entry-level and mid-range range, where robustness and low price are more important than weight.
  • Folding tires: Better suited for sporty riders who value low weight and high performance. Usually also tubeless compatible, which offers additional advantages.
  • Tubeless: Particularly advantageous for ambitious mountain bikers and riders who want to benefit from the best riding characteristics and very good puncture protection, but are willing to accept the higher maintenance costs.

The choice of tire type depends largely on the individual requirements and the area of ​​use of the bike.

What types of puncture protection are available for 20x4 tires?

There are different types of puncture protection for 20x4 tires, including:

  1. Classic puncture protection (B-Proof) : This includes rubber inserts under the tread that protect the tires from punctures and cuts.

  2. Override Technology : This technology offers a more advanced form of puncture protection. Some features of this technology are:

    • Stronger casing : The Override casing is three times stronger than conventional aramid belts like B-Proof and twice as strong as improved versions like B-Proof+.

    • Lower TPI for better strength : Using a lower TPI (threads per inch) improves the puncture, cut and abrasion resistance of the tire.

    • Weight : The tire may be a little heavier due to the robust construction. However, this should be barely noticeable for riders of fast e-bikes with high-speed motors, as their main priority is performance and safety.

The choice between B-Proof puncture protection and Override technology depends on the individual needs of the rider, with Override technology being a more robust and advanced option for riders who experience extreme conditions and high speeds.

Tubeless or tube - which is the better choice?

The choice between tubeless or tubeless depends on your personal preferences and the area of ​​use. Tubeless systems offer advantages such as a lower susceptibility to punctures and cuts, as the sealing fluid seals smaller holes directly. You can also ride with a lower tire pressure, which provides better traction.

With tubes, on the other hand, installation is often easier, and if the tire is more seriously damaged, a tube is quicker and easier to replace than a tubeless repair. Also keep in mind that tubeless tires and rims have to be specially designed for this, which can incur additional costs. So think carefully about whether you value comfort and performance or whether ease of use is more important to you.

Tips for choosing the optimal tire for your needs

If you are faced with the choice of finding the optimal tire for your mountain bike, you should know the differences between cross country tires and gravity tires. Cross Country tires are lighter and have a less aggressive tread. They are perfect for long distances and efficient pedaling on mostly solid surfaces. In contrast, gravity tires designed for downhill and enduro offer more grip and stability. They have a deeper profile, are wider and more robust to withstand the rigors of high speeds and technical trails. So your choice should depend on where and how you ride. Do you want to do fast laps or dare to tackle steep descents and difficult paths? Think carefully about what you need before you decide.

Features you should look for in downhill tires

When downhill, every contact with the ground counts, so the right MTB tires are crucial. Pay attention to the tire width on the mountain bike: wider tires offer more grip and stability. 29-inch MTB tires are popular because they roll over bumps better. When choosing downhill tires, you should also pay attention to the profile - deep studs for muddy terrain and flatter ones for dry conditions. The best enduro tire combines grip, puncture protection and good rolling properties. => Our most popular enduro tires are the Attack HPL , Attack FSX, Flow Snap , Snap Trail and Flow R-CP

The MTB tire test can help you find the best DH tires. Mountain bike tires should be robust and the tire combination at the front and rear must be right. Often wider at the front for grip, narrower at the rear for speed. Downhill tire test reports give you insights into which MTB downhill tires perform well on the trail.

Where you can buy the best downhill tires

Looking for the best downhill tires? You're in luck, as there are a number of top options to help you stay in control on the trails. Check out mountain bike equipment stores or specialty online shops that focus on downhill and MTB components. Large online marketplaces can also offer a wide selection. Pay attention to reviews and test reports to find the tires that best suit your riding style and the conditions you ride in. Don't forget to check out local bike shops too - you can often get valuable insider tips here and maybe even test the tires directly on your bike.

You can find our downhill and enduro tires at GRAVITY – VEE Tire Co.

The tires also scored highly in terms of comfort. Even on bumpy roads, the ride still felt comfortable. Durability is another plus point. After intensive use, the tires still looked great, with no sign of early wear.

And now the best part: the price-performance ratio. You don't have to dig deep into your pockets for the quality that VEE Tire Co delivers. This makes the tires a real insider tip for anyone who values ​​quality and a good deal. In short, our test drive proved that you really can't go wrong with these tires!

What should I consider when buying children's bicycle tires?

There are a few important things to consider when buying children's bicycle tires:

  1. The size : Make sure you choose the right tire size for your child's bike. The size is often indicated on the side of the tire, for example 16 x 2.25.

  2. Tread and tire pattern : Depending on where your child rides, whether on trails, gravel paths or on the road, you can choose between different treads. For MTB, tires with a more aggressive tread like the Crown Gem Jrs or the Flow Snap Jr may be ideal, while for gravel biking, tires with a less aggressive tread like the Rail Jr or the Speedster Jr are suitable. For road riding, you could opt for the Speedster Jr or the Cub .

  3. Width : The width of the tires affects the handling of the bike. For MTB and gravel biking, wider tires could offer more traction and comfort, while narrower tires for the road often allow for a faster ride. If you want to pimp your child's bike, check in advance whether the tire you want fits in the fork or rear triangle. The ETRTO specification also includes the width of the tire (e.g. 57-305 means that the tire is approx. 57 mm wide). In this case, the space in the fork and rear triangle should be more than 60 mm so that the tire can run freely.

  4. Material and Durability : Kids can often be rough on their bikes, so look for tires that are sturdy and durable to minimize punctures and breakdowns.

  5. Weight : Light tires can reduce the overall weight of the bike and make it easier for children to handle.

  6. Air pressure : Make sure you maintain the recommended air pressure for the tires you choose to ensure the best performance and safety. The recommended air pressure is indicated on the sidewall of the tire. Correct air pressure also helps tires last longer. If the pressure is consistently too low, it can lead to cracking.

Consider these points when deciding between the different options and select the tires that best suit your child's needs and riding style.

Seven tips for the perfect MTB tire

Some people pay little attention to them, but tires are one of the most important components on a bicycle. The tire is the contact piece between the driver and the ground. They transmit braking forces, acceleration energy and changes of direction over a small area, about the size of a postcard. You usually don't even notice a good tire. A bad tire, on the other hand, not only leads to a lack of safety in bad weather conditions, but also often leads to a negative change in the handling of the bike.

We'll tell you what you need to consider when choosing the right tire besides the brand 😉.

  1. The size

In addition to the tire size in inches (e.g. 27.5 inches), the tire width is also crucial, as the rim, fork and/or rear triangle limit the selection. The tire size is stated either in inches (27.5 x 2.35) or in ETRTO (e.g. 60-584, European Tire and Rim Standard, European Tire and R in the T echnical Organization ). The ETRTO size designation indicates the width (60 mm) and the inner diameter of the tire (584 mm) - a clear designation that can be used to clearly assign the rim size.
The customs information, on the other hand, is not so clear and clear. 26 inches can be assigned different diameters depending on the type of bike (diameter 559 mm MTB, 571 mm triathlon and 590 mm Dutch touring bikes).
Customs details are more common in MTB sports, which is why they are also stated on all tires.

The inside diameter of the tire and the shoulder diameter of the rim must match so that the tire sits correctly on the rim - a tire with the ETRTO 37-622 fits, for example. B. on a rim 622 x 19C.
The tire width and the inner rim width must also match.

  1. profile

The profile determines the traction and rolling resistance. Therefore, city/trekking bikes usually have a more closed profile, as these are more advantageous on asphalt or other solid surfaces than MTB tires with an open profile.
These in turn excel on soft, loose surfaces. But here too, you have to pay attention to what and how you drive. In downhill/enduro sports, the cleats are larger and often more free-standing than in cross-country sports.
For SUV bikes, the MTB tires are designed so that the center profile appears more closed, while the outer lugs are free-standing to offer the best possible grip on terrain, especially in curves, while experiencing little rolling resistance on road surfaces.

  1. The mixture

Or compound. As a rule, different rubber materials are mixed together in order to reconcile the different properties of a tire, which often compete, and to find an optimal compromise. These properties are rolling resistance, grip, downforce and durability.

We use e.g. For example, our Dual Control Compound has a harder compound on the tread to ensure less rolling resistance and more durability and a softer compound on the side knobs to provide good grip in corners.

If you have two different tire models on the front and rear wheels, then the rear tire should always have the harder rubber compound.

  1. The carcass

When it comes to the tire casing, the casing, you will read information like 72 TPI (or EPI, Ends per Inch, Threads per Inch). This indicates the density of the carcass fabric. We offer casings from 24 up to 120 TPI.
The higher the TPI number, the tighter the mesh and higher quality a casing is. Finer casings offer lower rolling resistance and provide better puncture protection (more on that later). A 67 TPI carcass is considered the optimal compromise between low weight and greater robustness.

  1. The breakdown protection

As previously indicated, the carcass plays an important role. Higher thread count casings (higher TPI/EPI count) are harder to puncture. However, from a TPI number of around 127, the threads are too fine and therefore no longer as stable.

A puncture protection belt, we call it B-Proof, under the tread provides greater puncture protection. A rubber/aramid belt with a thickness of 3 or 5 mm is used here. This lies between the tread and the tube and therefore protects against a puncture, i.e. a puncture.
For some people it is also worth considering an insert, such as: B. the Mefo bicycle mousse.

  1. The air pressure

Occasionally, customers complain that tires become cracked. This is usually due to insufficient air pressure when storing the bike, because air pressure also plays a role here. If the tires are flat for months, the tire material is stressed and cracks form.
But of course the pressure is also crucial for driving behavior, which is why the air pressure should be checked regularly and corrected if necessary. If the pressure is too high, the tire will literally jump; if the pressure is too low, it will flex. The risk of a breakdown is also higher if the air pressure is too low. It is particularly important for sporty drivers to find out the right air pressure for their own driving behavior. Recommendations can be found on the tire sidewall.

Bluetooth tire pressure monitoring systems such as the AIRsistant , as we know them from cars, are now also entering the market. They are a worthwhile addition so that you can always travel optimally.

  1. Tube or tubeless

A question of philosophy. The hose can be easily replaced if it is broken, but you always have to have a replacement with you when touring.
Tubeless installation is a bit more complex and some people swear when changing the sealant. Tubeless tires offer less rolling resistance, higher grip and more puncture protection. Mountain bikers often ride tubeless without having to fear a “snakebite” in the tube, where the tube is damaged if the rim flanges puncture.

Ultimately, everyone has to decide for themselves whether they want to ride tubeless or tubeless. Like everything in life, both options have their advantages and disadvantages.
