I have recently purchased a set of the new Bontrager AW3 tires with Hardcase Lite for my commuter bike. Wow, what an upgrade in ride quality! They replaced an older version of Bontrager Race All Weather tires that were sluggish and harsh to ride on. I put them on this past week and have about 50 miles on them already. I was immediately impressed with the ride quality. My commute is 11.5 miles each way, I encounter plenty of glass and debris on the road and ride through all weather conditions. The AW3 tire is a definite confidence booster! The Hardcase Lite (green layer) feature helps protect my inner tubes when riding over broken glass and debris and knock on wood… NO FLATS!
Stay tuned for future reviews after they have been on my bike another month. See more tire tips here! More in action shots to come!
