kevlar bead=foldable tire?

I'm about to buy a new rear tire, specifically, the Panaracer XC pro 2.1. The tire has a listing as a kevlar tire: http://www.rei.com/product/661232?st...Id=40000008000 and as a foldable tire: http://www.rei.com/product/784483?st...Id=40000008000. Are these actually different? There is also the wire bead version, which I'm not interested in.

Thanks for the help!

As an avid Panaracer user they look the same to me. $48 is a little steep. Check on line and you should be able to get a 120tpi folding tire for $25.

Thanks for the advise! I work at REI, so it won't be more expensive with my discount and the lack of shipping charges, plus its convenient to pick 'em up at work. Now, I just have to keep convincing myself to just get a new tire/stem/bashguard and keep the Jamis, instead of selling it to prodeal this: http://scottusa.com/us_en/product/1662/16103/genius_50
