    A folding bike is convenient when traveling or long-distance touring. The frame doubles over so that the bicycle is about the size of one wheel and half of the frame. You need special bike tires, though, as these bikes typically have smaller wheels. A folding bike tire is made of a flexible fiber bead to make it easy to store. They’re lighter than regular bike tires, which can help you get better speed with less effort. The tire tread is softer than on regular tires, providing greater traction on multiple riding surfaces. However, some do better in conditions like rain or mud than others. Some folding bike tires are better at on-road cycling while others do just fine when cycling through forests, hiking paths, and rougher terrain.
