Bontrager AW3 Road Tires
More fun, fewer punctures
Bontrager’s all-new AW3 delivers best-in-class defense against flats. These performance road tires have 78% better puncture protection than their predecessors, a long-lasting thread, and the right traction for fast, confident rides on any road in any season.
AW3 can prevent catastrophic punctures from glass, nails, tacks, rocks, gravel, potholes, and other ride-ending road debris.
The performance road tire with nine lives
Whatever you put them through, they’re likely to land on their feet-and that’s exactly the kind of purr-formance and purr-tection you should expect from the only tires approved by Bontrager’s No Flat Cat.
78% better protection against flats
Bontrager put AW3 Hard-Case Lite through exhaustive testing, working with Wheel Energy (the industry benchmark for third-party tire-testing) to independently validate the puncture protection improvements in the all-new AW3 family.
The results speak for themselves: the new AW3 Hard-Case Lite outperforms its predecessors by 78% and rolls with the market's most popular best-in-class tires.
Two levels of protection
Choose the lively feel of the Hard-Case Lite or the extra durability of Hard-Case puncture protection. Both rely on an improved subtread layer consisting of an aramid/nylon weave that gives the best of both materials, best-in-class puncture protection from aramid and a great road feel from the nylon.
Tires that last
AW3 tires are made with TR-Endure, a proprietary long-life rubber compound that's durable and fast-rolling on any road surface.
AW3’s lightly threaded design gives you extra traction and cornering confidence on fast road rides and commutes.
Rain or shine, AW3 performs. It’s the perfect set-it-and-forget-it road tire for all weather conditions.
Reflective sidewall options
All AW3 Hard-Case Lite tires are available with reflective sidewalls that can help you stand out in low-light riding conditions.
Multiple size options
AW3 Hard-Case Lite and Hard-Case models are available in four sizes from 25c-38c for road riders and commuters.
