Bontrager Race X Lite Aero TT – Say Hello to the World's Fastest Tire!

News Tires

Bontrager set out to create a tire that excelled in aerodynamics and rolling resistance. We put this tire up against the competition and it did not disappoint. In fact, once you hit 17 mph* you start to shave seconds off your ride compared to the next best-in-class tire. We’re talking about an increase of:

  • 6.37 seconds in a 10k time trial
  • 31 seconds in a 40k time trial
  • 183 seconds (more than 3 minutes) during an Ironman cycling leg.

This translates into quicker time trials, more energy after the cycling stage of a triathlon or your fastest commute ever.
