    Folding bead tire?

    Sorry to have to air my ignorance, but...what is it?

    I was just at the Kenda site and they have a lot of interesting tires that are made with this type of bead, instead of wire bead. Is it compatible with the common bicycle wheels? Does it have a different mounting/demounting method? Thanks!

    Found my answer here: Wire bead vs. kevlar bead

    I guess a search would have worked. My bad.
