When it comes to SAVA bikes, one of the most common questions riders have is about the maximum tire width. The tire width plays a crucial role in determining the performance, comfort, and stability of a bike.
The maximum tire width a bike can accommodate depends on several factors, including the specific model of the bike, its design, and clearance at the fork, chainstays, seatstays, and brakes. Sava is a brand that produces multiple bike models, so the maximum tire width will vary depending on the specific Sava bike model you are citing.
So, what's the maximum tire width you can use on SAVA bikes?
Understanding tire width and its impact on performance
Tire width refers to the measurement of the tire from one sidewall to the other. It is usually expressed in millimeters. The wider the tire, the greater the contact patch with the road surface, which can result in improved traction and stability. However, wider tires can also increase rolling resistance and add weight to the bike.
