As of next January CST Europe starts with the distribution of the new Supero line, a series of 4 new tyres. The most eye catching model is the Supero Hybrid, specially developed for use on electric bikes. To handle the increased demands on e-bike tyres related to higher speeds and higher weights, the Supero Hybrid has a reinforced carcass with one extra layer, while the rubber compound is more suited to heavy duty usage.
An additional carcass layer reduces the chance of puncture even more. An important feature as repairing a puncture on an e-Bike is more expensive than with a standard bike. The Supero AllRound is what CST calls the ultimate tyre for city bikes. It has an additional layer of fibre instead of rubber to create an anti-puncture layer. The Supero Fibre also has less mass, giving it less rolling resistance.
The Supero Sumo with a 5mm rubber layer offers a high degree of protection against punctures. The most important element of this tyre is the high quality production. Finally the Supero Speed, specially designed for the more sportive commuter. It has no anti-puncture system and weights only 400 grams despite the size of 37-622. The 60 thread skinwall carcass gives it a low rolling resistance.
According to CST, the Supero Speed is a city tyre combined with road race tyre technology. All four Supero tyres are made at CST Taiwan and offer the best quality, as stipulated by CST Europe.
