American Classic might have only re-launched last September with its range of five gravel tyres, two road tyres and one commuting/city option – but it’s already giving its rubber an overhaul, introducing new widths, lowering rolling resistance and increasing the durability. 

The brand’s “Road Hazard Replacement Policy” still stands, so if you manage to damage a tyre beyond repair, American Classic will provide a “one-time 50%-off replacement.”

After winning the 2019 National Single-Speed Cross-Country Mountain Biking Championships and claiming the plushie unicorn (true story), Stefan swapped the flat-bars for drop-bars and has never looked back. 

Since then, he’s earnt his 2ⁿᵈ cat racing licence in his first season racing as a third, completed the South Downs Double in under 20 hours and Everested in under 12.

But his favourite rides are multiday bikepacking trips, with all the huge amount of cycling tech and long days spent exploring new roads and trails - as well as histories and cultures. Most recently, he’s spent two weeks riding from Budapest into the mountains of Slovakia
