Abstract

Based on the research of accessible data resources we mention information about the influence of different bike tires to the energy expenditure of the body. The aim of the study is to determine the difference in energy expenditure (EE) of the body when using different types of bike tires. The analysis proved that there is a scarcity in systematic research of bike tires´ resistance. We found out that there is a significant difference in EE when using road type tires and fat bike tires, and trekking tires and Fat Bike tires as well. The results of the study will be used for other studies, and as a support in bike tires selection. The data can serve as a basis for development of bike tires or as an interesting sign for cyclists´ trainings.
