Default aramid fiber

On Thu, 08 Feb 2018 01:16:54 +0100, Emanuel Berg

Maxxis Detonator 23x622 clinchers have Kevlar
wire. Making the tire more straight/strong
and/or lighter while making the bike
more expensive?

Well, replacing some plain old steel wire with an exotic synthetic
material is very likely to increase prices :-) On the other hand the
synthetic's are about ten gm lighter, if that is important.
