Thanks to its longevity and durability, the AW3 has long been among Bontrager’s most popular road tyres, and now the US brand has updated its AW3 line-up with all-new Hard-Case lite and Hard-Case models, significantly improving puncture protection without sacrificing ride quality.
The Bontrager AW3 is your true set-and-forget road tyre, and both the Hard-Case Lite and Hard-Case models offer top-notch defence against flats, long-lasting tread, and the right traction for fast, confident rides on any road, in any season.
According to Bontrager: “The new AW3 line-up features an updated sub-tread layer made with a weave of nylon and aramid that provides more protection than ever before while maintaining AW3’s renowned ride quality.
“The new AW3 Hard-Case Lite massively outperforms its predecessor, offering 78% better protection against punctures. This step-change in performances establishes AW3 among the market’s leading road tyre options for durability.
“These improvements in puncture protection were independently validated by Wheel Energy, the industry benchmark for third-party tyre-testing.”
While both levels of puncture protection feature the sub-tread nylon/aramid layer, the Hard-Case version also includes bead-to-bead nylon ply for more durability and protection against flats.
The Bontrager AW3 Hard-Case Lite is available in in 700×25, 700×28, 700×32 and 700×38 sizes, with a. reflective sidewall option in all sizes.
Australian RRP for the AW3 Hard-Case Lite is $69.99.
