You can see the difference right away. But if you think balloon tires look awesome, wait until you take a ride on 'em. There’s magic in these high volume, low pressure Kevlar Guard premium tires. They absorb impact with less rolling resistance to give you a cushy, luxurious ride with added protection against the dreaded flat.
All Townie® Balloons come as EQ models, equipped with color matched fenders as well as front and rear LED lights.
Models and specifications vary depending on your region and are subject to change. For additional information contact a worldwide distributor.
