Time ADHX 45

“Riders that spend the majority of their time on unimproved roads will appreciate the volume and traction offered by a 45c tire. Gravel-oriented frames achieve the necessary tire clearance by thinning and lengthening the seatstays and chainstays and widening the crown of the fork. The resulting increase in frame deflection paired with the vibration absorption and traction of larger tires make light work of rough roads even as they render the ADHX 45 less suited to asphalt.”

  • Google Maps can’t figure out where you are most of the time
  • What appears to be a vicious sock tan wipes off with a wet washcloth
  • You know exactly where that Forest Service road connects, and HIGHLY recommend it
  • You don’t own a pump gauge that goes past 60psi
