Tyre Warmers, Tire Warmers, Termocoperte, Couvertures Chauffantes, Calientadores,
Reifenwarmer, Tyre heaters, Tire heaters, Tyre blankets, Tire blankets... No matter how
you say it, how do you choose the best Tire Warmer for your needs...
It is unfortunate and sad that most people when buying Tire
Warmers buy based on what are the lowest priced Warmers available
and often they end up wasting their money.
Poorer quality, cheap Tire Warmers that do not properly heat
the tires actually cost you more money due to poor tire wear
compared to quality Warmers that only cost a little more at
purchase. The decision to buy what is locally available or
just low priced is not wise and is often false economy. We
say that a better criteria is to buy what is best for the
tires, what suits the riders ability and what fits the future
riding plans of the rider or team. Although brief, we intend
to simply distinguish the different specifications of Tire
Warmers, what each specification provides for the rider and
we intend to help you make an informed
It is simple to choose the correct Tire Warmer Specification.
There is essentially only one question we recommend you ask
What is your riding ambition?
What do you intend to accomplish, what level of
riding am I aiming at?
RIDE FOR FUN...
If you intend to ride at Track Ride Days, ride at local Club
Level, only race a few times each year or are just starting
out and are unsure what bike you are going to stay with or
you are intending to ride within a very limited budget, then
choose a good quality basic Tire Warmer like Sportsbike's
Why is simple. At any level of ability,
the minimum a rider needs is for tires to be heated to the
right temperature to support confidence, control and longer
tire life. Unfortunately, few Tire Warmers provide this. Sportsbike's
EVOLUTION has been specifically designed to provide
for the essential needs of the rider and is priced to fit
the budget of the true Privateer.
I WANT TO SEE HOW FAR I CAN GO...
If you intend to ride frequently, compete in a series or
championship or race as often as possible and you are intending
to put effort and resources into doing the best you possibly
can, then choose a higher performance Tire Warmer that will
Why is simple. You get what you pay for.
Lower priced 'Budget' Warmers are not made with the same attention
to detail or features, they are not designed to reach the level of
performance the serious racer requires. A serious Racer will always
push equipment harder and needs both a higher level and reliable
performance. Tires at the right temperature
at the start line, tyres ready to give feedback and grip,
tyres that will last the race and go the distance.
TRACKMASTER Class is customised with the features need
by serious riders and Teams. Features like easier fitting using
pull cords and toggles, custom team or sponsor colours, sponsor or
team logos or badging, wider rim to rim coverage, tyre compound
area for easy tire recognition... all these to make the
TRACKMASTER Class easier to use.
I MUST WIN...
For serious racers, Professional Riders, Teams competing
in National or World Championship competition or for riders
who do not wish to compromise, Sportsbike's PODIUM
Class is the only choice to make - nothing comes close.
Why is simple. The Racer or Professional
rider is going to push the bike and tires to the limit right
off the start. Confidence, feedback and maximised grip are
vital, right off the start line. It is essential that tires
be heated to the right, evenly distributed temperature, that
the tires last full race distance and that there is total
tire flexibility off the line so that the contact patch is
consistent and grip is maximised. Sportsbike's
PODIUM Class is designed without compromise to achieve
these requirements and are custom made to suit the individual
requirements of Teams and Riders. As standard, the PODIUM
comes fitted with a movable Thermostat, so that the desired
tire temperature can be achieved, although not essential,
Sportsbike makes an easy to use Temperature Control System
with push button control and digital read out to manage tyre
- Dial in the Temperature
- Unequalled flexibility
- Maximum control
- Rider confidence
Maximum certainty - Total Control
We have watched 'Mr Superpole' Troy Corser use
this system in Superpole, he looks at the actual Tyre Temperature
and knows the tyre is ready. If the tyre is ready to go, so
is he. Troy has won more Superpole front row starts than anyone

So what makes a good Tyre Warmer?
Most Tyre Warmers are a series of compromises. The result is usually rational - even impressive on paper - but often ineffective, compromised and lacking in any real application and often 'trickier' than needed and fitted with 'sales gimmicks' that contribute little to the performance of the tyre or the rider. Tyre Warmer designs should include what they do for the rider's confidence and the tyres longevity. They also need to look good, fit well and have performance that instills confidence when you ride.
"Tyre Warmers don't get used on the Moon so we don't use the materials to get you there."
But what is good looks without the maker having a thorough understanding of what a rider or tyre needs? Performance encumbered by tricky technology? Heating efficiency compromised by price? Good Tyre Warmers balance these apparent opposites, creating an experience that is both satisfying and refreshing. What the rider experiences and understands is in harmony. The reward is total involvement and commitment: a level of engagement that truly stimulates the senses, that re-ignites the passion for riding, that says I belong here.
