Our Statement:

Since our founding in 1952,
at Panaracer we have continued to break new ground as a specialist manufacturer of bicycle tires and inner tubes.
To continue providing steadfast quality, as well as value that meets the needs of the times,
we have formulated a new corporate statement to support the core of our business activities.

Tires to support.
Ensuring that each downward stroke on the pedal propels you forward.
Tires to carry.
Transporting you and everything you carry reliably to your destination.
Tires to move.
Bringing constant joy to your rides no matter who you are or where you ride.
Supporting, carrying, moving your life forward.


Our Mission:

To provide outstanding tires that bring confidence, reliability and excitement to your riding,
and sustainable value to society.

Formed in 1952, Panaracer began manufacturing rubber products for a variety of commercial and consumer applications. Since then, we began to exclusively produce bicycle tires so we could carefully focus on producing the fi nest tires available today. Panaracer is the last Japanese manufacturer still producing bicycle tires in Japan. We feel that maintaining our domestic production allows us to maintain our quality control at the highest levels.

On staff we have expert R&D engineers constantly researching compounds, tread patterns and casing technology. Additionally, there is an emphasis on cutting-edge CAD tread and profile development. This advanced first stage of tire creation allows us to quickly advance new tire designs and product development. We are also constantly upgrading our molds and bladders, both important tools for producing reliable cutting-edge rubber products.

For the tire production itself, we use only the fi nest hand-picked raw materials to create our casings and compounds. When those material choices are combined with our patented technology, the final result is the fi nest tires that you can cycle on for racing, touring, urban and offroad cycling.
