Much more than a tire, the new GILA is the outcome of a thorough work to propose the know-how and the HUTCHINSON technologies in the largest bikers. Of this will was born the GILA.
The Tubeless Ready concept associated with a compound and a construction of high quality make of the GILA the ideal teammate to leave by chance. Why GILA? Because this north-american area symbolizes the genesis of the discovering and funny MTB. To reach there and share with maximum people, we had to propose a summary of all the best that HUTCHINSON produce in France every day.
HOW TO MEASURE TYRE WEAR ?
To measure the wear on your tyres and to know when they need replacing, you need to inspect the tread. The tread comes into direct contact with the terrain you are cycling on and therefore determines your tyre's performance. A tyre needs to be replaced when the centre lugs are worn down to the same height as the side lugs.
HOW TO REMOVE YOUR TYRE
To remove your tyre, first deflate the inner tube until no more air comes out. Once deflated, use a tyre lever to remove the tyre from the rim.
HOW TO PUT YOUR TYRE BACK ON
To put your tyre back on, first start by placing one side of the tyre into the rim. Next, inflate your inner tube to approximately 30% before putting it into the tyre (inflating it beforehand reduces the risk of pinching the inner tube). Then, place the other side of the tyre into the rim, starting on the side opposite the valve. Before inflating the inner tube all the way, check to make sure it isn't pinched between the tyre and the rim.
HOW TO INFLATE YOUR TYRE CORRECTLY
Inflate your tyre with caution. The recommended pressure is indicated on the side of your tyre as well as on its product sheet (available online). Also, before each outing, make sure that your tyres are at the correct pressure for your ride.
TIP FROM THE PROS
When inflating your tyre, be sure to inflate it to the correct pressure for the terrain you will be riding on and especially the weather conditions.
When riding in rainy weather, lower the tyre pressure to increase the tyre's grip. When riding in dry weather, you can increase the pressure.
Also, before each outing, make sure that your tyres are at the correct pressure for your ride.
