Combining MTB geometry and parts with road bike wheels and tyres has always been the case with the R-7 line up – but the new Plus tyres takes this to a new level. These high-air volume/low-rolling-resistance tyres are perfect for dealing with ‘All Surface. A custom rear dropout allows us to mount the rear hydraulic disc brake caliper inside the rear triangle, clearing the way for any rack or mudguards that may be required. The Victoria features massive 650b x 47c tyres to smooth out the road chatter. These deep profile tyres give the same rolling diameter as 700c x 28c tyres and the extra air volume make them super comfortable and pinch-puncture resistant.
