Nearly 70 years ago, on March 10, 1952, the National Tire Corporation was established in Japan. In the ensuing years, the brand now known as Panaracer has gone global, with its tires adorning bikes across the world. For this big anniversary, the tire brand has a few things planned. 

“To commemorate our seventieth anniversary, we have adopted the theme of ‘encountering uncharted paths,’” said Ryoichi Yamato, president and representative director at Panracer. “We will be introducing exciting new products in conjunction with events that will encourage cyclists to discover new roads, trails, friendships and vistas while cycling.” The anniversary plans will take place throughout 2022, with information being released in the near future at panaracer.com.

Unlike many other tire brands, Panaracer focuses exclusively on bicycle tires, with a wide range of models from road and commuting to gravel and cyclocross.
