Benefits of Foldable Tires?
 
I see tires advertised as "foldable". What's the draw/benefit to foldable tires? Is it the ability to transport them in a relatively small space?

The steel bead is replaced with several smaller beads of Kevlar (or such). It's a considerable difference, relatively speaking.
