Alpine JB Tire
Inspired by memories of day-long shenanigans with friends, Ritchey's Alpine JB tire is a mixed terrain tire for the adventurer. As the road becomes a bit of a dull theme, the unique, inverted tread pattern on the JB is clutch and offers just the right amount of bite to explore smoother gravel and single-track offshoots. Lacking the taller knobs that are part of more gravel-specific tires, the JB is fast and rolls more efficiently over pavement and dirt sectors that results in less riding-fatigue, as well as perhaps a more exciting ride in the loose stuff.
Ritchey achieves the eye-catching tread pattern using their Vector Force Analysis, which helps to design tread that matches the specific uses demanded by the rider. The JB is fortified with Stronghold Casing that increases puncture resistance, and the 35mm width offers tubeless compatibility.
