Tubeless made easy

The all-new R3 Hard-Case Lite TLR road tire is fast-rolling, easy to install, and hard to flat. It's equipped with updated Hard-Case Lite puncture protection and a lightly-treaded design for traction and confidence through every corner. Plus, it's a breeze to install, so you get all the benefits of road tubeless without any of the hassle.

A lightly-treaded TLR road tire with proprietary TR-Speed compound and improved Hard-Case Lite puncture protection that's easy to set up and packed with performance.

  • Bontrager's proprietary TR Speed Compound rolls faster. They went back to the drawing board and totally reworked their rubber compound to deliver a tire that is faster in the lab and faster on the road.

  • R3’s improved Hard-Case Lite protection prevents punctures, and TLR Sealant can actually seal punctures before they become flats. When they’re part of your tubeless setup, you’ll enjoy more miles and fewer flats.

The R3's lightly treaded casing adds traction and cornering confidence. As the tire size increases the traction becomes more pronounced, perfect for aligning tire size with intended use.

Tubeless Rim/Tire Cross-Section

Going tubeless allows you to run lower tire pressures without the added weight of a tube. Lower tire pressure has many benefits, including greater traction, lower rolling resistance over rough surfaces, and decreased risk of a puncture-related flat.

Tubeless-ready rims and tires are parts of a complete system that eliminate the need for tubes by creating an airtight chamber between the rim and tire. Liquid sealant is added to the chamber to fill small punctures and maintain air pressure while you ride.

UST (Universal Standard for Tubeless) is a specific type of tubeless system that dictates the shape of the rim and tire bead. UST rims should be paired with UST-specific tires for best results.
