You can see the difference right away. But if you think balloon tires look awesome, wait until you take a ride on 'em. There’s magic in these high volume, low pressure Kevlar Guard premium tires. They absorb impact with less rolling resistance to give you a cushy, luxurious ride with added protection against the dreaded flat. All Townie® Balloons come as EQ models, equipped with color matched fenders as well as front and rear LED lights.
