The LIT 360 Ultra-Reflective is a performance-oriented training tire with a high-profile reflective strip that is visible from virtually 360 degrees. Blending performance features such as an folding aramid bead, supple 127 TPI casing, and fast rolling compound with utilitarian features like a stout, puncture-resistant layer and reflective sidewall, this tire provides the best of both worlds.

Designed by the LIT team in Portland, OR, the 360 Ultra-Reflective is the perfect choice for wet-weather climates with very few hours of daylight in the winter and early spring. With its 9mm wide reflective sidewall, the LIT 360 Ultra-Reflective increases the likelihood that cars will see you in low light conditions. Visible from almost any direction, from practically directly in front to nearly directly behind, this tire will dramatically increase your visibility from the perspective of an approaching car. In addition to urban cyclists, it's also a fantastic option for road cyclists looking to maximize their training and ride-time after dark.

Labeled a 700c x 28mm, we've found that these tires actually measure to 26mm wide on most, if not all, road rims. As such, they are a great choice for the majority of road bikes with tight tire clearance. They also fit on commuting and touring bikes with fenders.

The 360 Ultra-Reflective Tire comes in 700c x 28mm (ISO 28-622) and weighs 250 grams. Folding Bead. 127 TPI casing. Maximum inflation is 100 PSI/6.8 Bar.

Good tire for the $

I've got about 150 miles of spring riding on these tires. Lots of sand, grit & glass on the shoulder and no flats yet. They mounted easy and feel pretty supple on the road. Reflective accents are super bright.

Excellent tire for the money.

A 5000 mile review if the LIT tire

I recommend the LIT tire for front wheel use only. The reflectivity is best there. Less likely to puncture. I bought a pair spring 2014. Put one on the front wheel ran it for 2000 miles. Decided to put one on the rear wheel. Lasted 2 days before it punctured. Replaced it with my go to tire Conti 4 season 28mm. I usually average 1 flat a season (8-10k miles). Kept the LIT on the front. I have ridden it on gravel roads, trails and the usual roads one rides when Randonneuring. After 5k miles the tire is as expected at the end of its usefulness. The tread is square and thin the texture of the belt can be seen. The side reflective part is like thick reflective tape glued to the sidewall. It has a seam. The reflective sidewall has peeled up at the seam. I tried to super glue it back on but it did not hold so I trimmed it leaving a bit of unprotected sidewall. There is another seam where the sidewall and tread interface. This seam around the circumference has opened slightly and threads are coming loose. I will replace it with another LIT tire.

Great commuter tire

Bought this tire during LIT's crowd funding campaign on CrowdSupply.com. The tire looks a lot like a Gatorskin but feels a bit more supple on the bike. I've never been into riding tires with reflective sidewalls, partly because I didn't think they really helped that much. Most reflective sidewalls have such narrow reflective stripes they can only be seen if you're riding perpendicular to a car so but when I saw the video demo I had to give them a try. Wow, they really make a difference with visibility at night. Most reflective sidewalls can only be seen from the side. The LIT tires are visible almost head on and from behind which makes them much more useful for night-time riding. I haven't been riding these long, but so far they have held up well and survived several run-ins with glass.

Quite possibly the perfect commute tire

I bought these tires to put on a second wheelset for my CX bike, which I also commute on, mostly on pavement and occasional light trails, for which my normal 33mm CX tires were overkill (plus, don't want to wear those out with the daily miles).

These 28mm tires are physically closer in size to the 23mm tires on my road bike, than the 33mm CX tires - yet, they are much closer in comfort level on the street to the CX tires, especially while accelerating and hitting expansion joints, train tracks, etc. I got to put them through the rain challenge already on my commute yesterday, and they were very confidence inspiring, even through deep puddles. Add to that, the astoundingly reflective sidewalls with a nice design, which I'm sure really do help with safety on my evening commutes, and we have ourselves a real winner here.

Very excited to see if these hold up as well as past commuting tires I've used - can't say for sure yet, but all signs point to yes. Even if they don't last as long as other tires, for the price and benefits, they likely still will be worth repeating.

Shows up and ramps up.

Highly visable this LIT is an excellent handling tire with a supple feel and decent endurance as I get about 2500 miles on them. The 28 profile allows for comfortable sojourns on dirt segments or smoothing out rougher asphalt. The illumiated sidewall seems to glow and is a great looking tire. It looks particularky good on my titanium frame. 100 lbs of pressure at max is where I pump it at 180 lbs for me. While I have them on my single speed, which I ride more than any of my bikes, it is not a race tire per se but feels like one nevertheless.

Exactly what I was looking for!

In buying the LIT, I got greater comfort from switching to a wider tire, and the added safety from the reflective sidewalls! The drivers in SWFL are so dangerous between the clogged roadways and inattention, that you need every advantage. The reflective sidewalls offer that added safety margin. The wider 28mm tire is a departure from my typical 20mm, but by choice and I am extremely satisfied.

I only have about 1K miles logged with them, but so far so good. The paved roads down here are made with crushed shell, so it shreds the best of tires in a fraction of the time as elsewhere...so I'm not counting on great tread wear. Tires from Conti, Vredest, Mich, and IRC don't last long either.

I've had no flats to this point, and we are pretty much relegated to road shoulders, which are littered with debris and glass. So they appear as durable as any other.

I'm going to try 32mm next, just to see if they'll squeeze in on my BMC's frame and fork.

my go to tire for cycle commuting

The lit 360 has got the widest reflective band of all commuting tires and it pays off. Compared to other cyclist running reflective sidewalls riding a bike with these tires like riding on a light cycle from Tron. I run full fenders and panniers and even the rear tire is still significantly visible. The only night writers that I know of that are more visible are those that are using monkey lights.

Durability of these tires are acceptable I've run over glass and other debris without issue. The only time I have flatted was when I hit a very large rock at a very rapid speed and I don't think any tire would've prevented that De-airing. So far I've run this particular set for over 2000 miles and they still have the nubs on.

LIT my Fire1

I have a Guru Veloci Ti that I have built up with single speed elements. I love to ride and train on this bike and take it nearly everywhere which means riding on paved and dirt roads here in the NW suburbs of Detroit. Putting 28's on this bike is a tight squeeze between the chain stays but they work. They are fast and subtle feeling on the road and able to handle the dirt too. I've got over 1000 miles on this set already and there appears to be plenty of tread left even on the rear tire so far.

I like the way it handles into a turn and on the straights. It feels light and at about 250 grams (I haven't verified the weight) it rolls nicely and has stood up to some dirt road abuse. The reflective sidewall, besides looking cool on my titanium frame almost glows when a light hits it. I ride this bike often in the evenings so the reflective sidewall gives me a little more confidence that I'll be seen.

It installed easily on my Ksyrium Mavics and overall, especially with prices here on BTD, I'm very happy with the overall value.

Great initial review

Purchased these for my commuter, a Specialized Secteur. I've only got 100 miles on these but they roll well and feel good on hot asphalt and cement roads. Since I'm in Phoenix AZ I have no idea how they will be in the wet but love the reflectorized sidewalls. Anything that helps the daydreaming car drivers see me is welcome. When I get more miles I'll update this review on the durability and flat protection.

Excellent Tire!

I'm an ultra-distance cyclist and purchased these tires at the beginning of the year. As I do a lot of night riding the reflective elements of the tire are great. It's also good to have the extra width for the doubles (200 mile) rides I do. They go on easy and wear well

Reflective sidewall is great, puncture resistance not so much

Love the reflective sidewalls, but I've had 3 punctures in 400 miles on my normal commuting route. In my experience, they've been much worse than Vittoria Rubino Pro, Continental Gatorskin, and Michelin Pro 4 Endurance from the puncture perspective.

Light weight and very reflective. It shows up well. These tires are narrower and lighter

than my previous set. I noticed a significant reduction in rolling resistance. Very impressive visibility improvement after dark. A good product. It is too soon for me to judge durability.

Great urban commuter tire

This is my 2nd pair of LITs. Got 1st pair about 4-5 years ago & commute all year around. I prefer these to the Vitoria randonneurs. Reflective strip is wider on the LIT, it is foldable ( my similarly priced Victoria's weren't). I like that LIT is a Portland start-up... I believe the tires are manufactured overseas.

Be very careful

Got these tires to add visibility and save a few bucks.I have been riding Schwable marathon Plus for 4 yrs now and love them. LIT,Yes they are very reflective but I live on the east coast in NY and can tell you that these tires are NOT an alternative to other brands. You get what you pay for! They are NOT meant to be on a road bike unless you are just farting around.The long lasting tread compound can loosely be translated as Slicker than sht. Be aware that these tires are dangerous above 20mph in dry weather or on any incline where braking is necessary. Perhaps they will offer another tread compound in the future catering more to real road riders and commuters. Bike travel takes you farther... Be safe out there.

The perfect training tire.

The width of the tire makes for a comfortable ride even at higher pressures, I ride these at usually 100psi. They stick to the road in foul weather and road conditions whether it is rain or gravel. I appreciate the reflective approach. Most, if not all, other reflective tires are designed more for puncture resistance and therefore ride awful like Flintstone wheels. I am very happy with these tires and I will be riding on them for a while.

Glow in the Dark

Bought these tires for my husband who is a light freak. These tires have reflective material on the side walls. When a light source hits them they actually seem to glow. For someone who rides at night they are amazing but even in day light they reflect. They are wider and almost don't fit in the fork of his Giant but it does not seem to effect performance. So far he has been happy with the cornering and road handling.

Good under the right conditions and at the right price

After reading earlier posted reviews, I thought this tire would suit my daily training need not too wide (26 mm), not too soft,... The deeply discounted sale price made it worth a try. First few rides were great but I soon noticed small cuts in the back tire's tread from ordinary urban trail debris (small rocks,...) A subsequent ride in the rain brought out the worst in the tires very poor traction when wet and another cut from debris resulted in an unrepairable puncture (after about 100 total miles on the tire). I am still riding the second tire without problems but do not expect it to last very long. I will replace it with a different tire.

Racing feel with training puncture protection

I put a good 500 miles on these tires as of today, with great results. The LIT tire is an impressive combination of race-like lightness and roadfeel with a substantial level of puncture-protection, and of course extreme visibility due to the wide reflective strip. I only experienced one flat during this time due to a finishing nail, which would have certainly punctured any tire. I did notice the reflective band stared to peel off around mile 400, but I suppose the extreme weather I subjected them to was to blame. Overall a great tire, on par with offerings from Vittoria and the like, but with a more wallet-friendly price and great nighttime visibility.

really tough tire

I also bought these during the funding... I live in Bend, OR. A little bit of a worry about how they would hold up over on the dry side of the mountains- awesome. I commute year round over here, snow, rain, wind, ice... the first time I rode was in the rain to work, fantastic. Not a problem with all the cinders on the roads still from snow etc. The sidewalls, wow. Very reflective and can possibly save your life. Nice tire. Nice job.
