SAKA, JAPAN (February 22, 2021) — Tire manufacturer Panaracer is proud to unveil its new logo and brand identity today, celebrating its history of technologies and innovations while looking to the future with a new, modernized look.
Since being founded in 1952, Panaracer has blended careful Japanese craftsmanship with the finest materials and innovative technologies to set themselves apart as the leading specialist manufacturer of bicycle tires and inner tubes.
