Damn, I knew Alienation had been playing around with a street ready tubeless tire and rim but it looks like the job is finished and they should be available soon. Spotted over on their Instagram is a sneak peek at the 2.3″ TSC 138 Tire that uses their priority TCS tubeless system , which according to them saves over a pound in weight for each wheel.
BSD dropped this guide to their new Spring 2014 product line which will be arriving worldwide next month. Worth noting the Raider Frame in Space Ghost Purple, Alex D Donnasqueak Tires and the new 14mm Back Street Pro Hubs…
If you told me two years ago that Odyssey would be making a Slick 2.40″ Grey Tire with a Reflective sidewall I would have called you mad, but hey never say never. It looks like colored Tires are here to stay and Odyssey’s first fully colored tire looks pretty wild. Combining their best selling Chase Hawk Tire with a reflective stripe and a sticky Grey compound, you can expect to see these things available later this year.
After the huge success of their Gum topped Dehart Tires, it looks like Cult are trying out a white version. These samples are being tested right now after 2 months of shredding they are still looking good. I’m sure we’ll be seeing these badboys hit the market later this year, but the question is will they be as popular?
After the success of the Night Hawks, it looks like Odyssey are going to be keeping you seen at night with the new Black Hawk tires. Working in effectively the same way, these tires look like a standard Hawk tire in the day, but use a highly reflective strip that is only visible at night. Available in both 2.20″ and 2.40″ sizes, both hitting stores at the end of March along with the Aaron Ross Tire will also be getting the same treatment which you can check out if you click through…
Spotted on Alex Coleborn’s new ride is a sample of Webbie’s signature Tire from KHE Bikes that we’ve seen pop up a bit recently. The tire should be out later this year, and from what I’ve been told, these things are as light as the inamous KHE Mac Tires which have been a huge hit with park riders over the past few years.
Corey Martinez just built up a new ride loaded with a bunch of sample 2014 United and Duo Brand parts. They have a new Duo 2.40″ Tire in the works which will be available in flavor of the month Gum, along with a shorter 165mm version of the United Nathan Williams Nash Cranks which will keep all you 4 peggers happy. Look out both of these products as well as a few more later this year…
For the 91st installment of The Union‘s ‘Products’ section, Kurt takes a closer look at the ‘Tall T’ bars from Sunday Bikes, the ‘Member’ V2 sprocket from Cult, the new ‘Valor’ tire from The Shadow Conspiracy, the ‘Aegis’ hub guards from Profile Racing and finally the 2014 ‘Malum’ complete from Subrosa. Hit the picture above or this link for the full low-down on all the featured bits ‘n’ bobs.
You may have spotted the RP sample at Interbike, but here is another sneak peek at the collaboration Tire that Cult are doing with Vans. Much like the grips, these feature the same infamous waffle design found on the sole of Vans shoes, although scaled down a tad. These Tires measure up at 2.35″, will be available later this year, and if the grips are anything to go by, these are going to be more popular that hash brownies at a high school party.
I’m hoping for a Gum version with a White sidewall, that would be the shit.
Seen on Dak Roche’s latest bike which you can check out in detail here.
This week’s installment of The Union‘s ‘Products‘ see’s Kurt showing us the details of the ‘Millennium’ guard sprocket from The Daily Grind, the aluminium ‘Ravager’ pedals from The Shadow Conspiracy, the ‘Match’ freecoaster hub from Cult, Profile Racing‘s ‘Elite’ front hub and Fit Bike Co.‘s ‘F.A.F’ tyre. I’m particularly feeling the ‘Millennium’ sprocket’s 5 spoked, full-guard design. Head over to The Union for the full scoop on all these components.
Boom. Our friends at BSD just hit us up with an EXCLUSIVE first look at the new Alex Donnachie Tires that they have been working on and you might have seen pop up on some of the bike checks they have been doing with the team recently.
Get a closer look at the tires and find out more here.
My my, Fit really have been busy…
Morgan Long has one hell of a fresh bike. Fit put together this neat flipbook above, showcasing his fresh Motomike frame along with a bunch of prototype Fit parts including the new splinedrive 24mm Keydrive Sprocket, Intersection Fork, ALL Gum T/A Tires and what intrigues me the most, Fit’s new Central Hubs.

Who would have thought people would be so into coloured Tires eh? Well after the HUGE popularity of their gum Dehart tires it looks like Cult might be releasing them in White too.
What do you guys think to these badboys?
Fit have been playing around with the colours on their new T/A Tire which is due out next year in Black, Black/Gum and all Gum. Seen here is what they are calling “Ron Burgundy”. Not sure if these are just a sample or a sneak peek at another future colourway but no doubt a lot of people will be going crazy on these…
David Grant has a bike check up on the BSD site where you can see what he’s riding at the moment. Be sure to check out the exclusive interview we did with David HERE a few months back about his signature Raider Frame and Bars that he rocking here. Also worth noting the prototype Alex D BSD Tires that David and a lot of the team are riding at the moment.
After leaving Stolen a few weeks back, Morgan Long just built up and all new Fit Bike Co steed which sure to leave a few of you very jelous. Morgan is running the new Mike Aitken Motomike Frame in Trans Gold with some prototype 2.4″ T/A Tires. Expect to see the T/A (Traction Advantage) Tires available in February in Black, Black/Gum and what you see here- ALL Gum in both 2.3″ and 2.4″.
One of the surprise products at this year’s Interbike was Mark Webb’s signature Tire from German brand KHE. Based on their super light MAC Tires, these feature a foldable bead to keep the weight down, and a smooth tread to keep them fast. These sample seen here on the Total BMX Instagram page show a Red and White pinstipe version along with an all black option. I expect Mark and a few other of the Total squad will be putting these things through their paces with an official release later in 2014.
Odyssey’s Chase Hawk Tires have been out for a little while, but now they have a complete range available including multi colour and casing choices, as well as some limited edition runs like the Big Logo versions we posted a few months back. Odyssey sent us over this rad promo video featuring Chase laying down some heat on home turf in Austin, as well as some more info about what has to be one of the hottest tires out right now.
Everybody loves Chase Hawk. His style is fast, stylish and smooth. The same can be said about his signature tires.
Chase’s tire is the first slick we’ve ever done, and the final product came directly from lots of discussions with the Hawk man himself. Already a fan of our Aitken tires, Chase wanted to add more variety to our line-up by doing something completely different for his design. He mentioned that we didn’t have a slick, so we went from there. The Hawk tire has a fast, low-profile tread that is grippy, simple, and visually unique. This tread sticks to cement while still catering to Chase’s style at the trails as well. These things look great on a bike and can be seen on many, so it’s no surprise that lots of newer tires now have similar design cues. In some cases you will find that these look-a-likes are very heavy by comparison, so beware of the faux-Hawks out there.
