Kona Libre ALtyres advice please.

Hi all,

I’m new here and fairly new to cycling in general so if I ask a question with an obvious answer, please be kind!

I’m looking at buying the new Kona Libre AL with its 45 mm smooth tyres.

I’d rather have a narrower, knobblier tyre like the Schwalbe G-One 38 or the WTB Riddler 37.

Can anybody please advise me if these tyres will be suitable for the Libre AL’s rims?

Thanks for your help...and understanding.

    Can only see some vague views of the rims in the pics, but it looks as though a narrower tyre should fit ok..
  • Slightly puzzled by your wish for narrower, knobbly tyres.
    I'd just use the ones it comes with, 37mm Riddlers won't be much different to 45mm ones.
  • Thanks imposter2.0.

    The rims it comes with are these:

    WTB KOM Light Team i25 TCS rims.

    I mistakenly thought the tyres on the bike were wide slicks.
