Jones Duro Crux Plus Sized Tires 27.5 and 29 x 3.25″ $80

These tires are made with DURO’s exclusive D-Tech breaker technology, a thin and light layer of high-strength material that wraps around the bias plies of the tire’s casing, providing more strength and stability, and durability. The D-Tech breaker layer acts as a reinforcement, distributing stress and forces evenly across the casing for improved performance, and reduced risk of tread separation, punctures, and other tire damage.

The Duro Crux has a thin and flexible tread section that can easily flex to absorb small bumps and ripples for a smoother, more efficient ride with more traction, on all terrain.

If you have a plus bike, measure the chainstays where the tires fit and ensure you have at least 3.75″ of clearance before ordering from Jones Bikes.
