IRC Tire: The Official Tire of the Belgian Waffle Ride


Within the BWR exepreience, there is no more important decision than whichtire you choose to get you through the race. Getting as many riders as possibleonto the wide variety of IRC Tire options ensures there is a greater chance thatthey will get to the finish without their tires ever being an issue. IRC is avital partner to help us continue the momentum our events have generated -our collective goal is to get as many riders to the finish safely.

IRC is proud to be the official tire partner of the Belgian Waffle Ride (BWR) and weare very excited for the inaugural BWR AZ March 11 - 12. The BWR is treacherous.The courses are designed to test your body, mind, and equipment to the limit.Tire choice is critical. We worked with the Monuments of Cycling team to bringyou BWR AZ course intel and tire recommendations for this grueling event.

The Boken DoubleCross tires provide superior performance on loose, rough, orloamy terrain making them the perfect tire for the BWR AZ course. The 700x42is optimal, however, if you want one tire that can waffle it all, it isthe DoubleCross 700x38.
