I would argue that you should either try and make a tire, or stop whining. Just a thought.

Some parks require a lot of pedaling. You'll see more than one DH bike with dropper at Mammoth.

Appreciate the response. There are some compelling features, mostly the side siping, that are interesting to me. Alas, I run 27.5 smile

Shipping is the problem, it's 10-15% of the final cost of our tires. If you order 2/4/6, we can spread that across the whole order. We'll also have special pricing at events (whenever they start up again).

We're not in a race to the bottom to produce the cheapest tire. We're trying to provide a better value for high-quality tires & plan to give back/support the riding community with various initiatives. YT or Canyon are great examples, you can buy a "big brand" for the same price but it's a base model with lower grade components.

We'd love for you to try our tires but no big deal if they're not for you, there's other great options. We just want people to be out, riding bikes & having fun.

They're supposed to be the same, we weighed a random sampling of the first production that the factory sent.
Could've just been because they were made on different days. Folding bead is supposed to be around ~1030g

Can anyone comment to why the splatter version of the tire is 100g less than standard? I believe it’s the same casing. Seems like quite a big difference

Looks good for the price! I hope they have early success and are able to release more casing/compound combinations, as right now neither of these tires appeal to me solely off not having the right combos. Soft, sticky fast wearing rear and hard, less grippy front? No thanks.

I’d love to see more splatter colors for ultimate matchey matchey.

Great to read Matt Fisher's reviews. He's a smart dude and an extraordinarily great rider. Mega credibility.

$65-ish is the base price for a single tire.
Buy mutliples (2/4/6) for discount.
Buy at events for discount.
Frequent buyer/referral program
Plus more stuff/perks to be announced when we actually launch in a couple weeks.

YT sells for 35% discount over other brands by shaving margin from every part on the bike, we only make tires.

We chose not to cut every corner & make the least expensive tire possible. Instead, we chose to make a high-quality tire that we sell at a really good price, if they're not for you, no big deal, we just want people to have fun riding bikes.

$65-ish is the base price for a single tire. If you were to buy 6 tires at once (for yourself or a group of friends, or if you buy a set at an event, it'll be pretty close to $50 per tire.

Unfortunately, tires cost a lot to make, making good tires costs more & shipping adds to that equation. Direct bike companies can shave the margin of every part in the bike to add up to a larger saving, but we only make one product.

We have a pretty feature-rich offering for 15-30% less than the competition, with perks they can't / won't do (or, flat out aren't interested in doing). If you sign up for our mailing list, you'll get a notification email with early access & discount code to use.

$65-ish is the price for a single tire, shipped.
If you buy 2/4/6 tires, there's a discount.
Whenever events open again, we'll be there with special pricing (and tacos).
We'll also have a frequent buyer/referral program & some other stuff, as well.

We ride. We know how annoying it is explaining how expensive bikes are or how bikes cost more than a car.
We can't solve all the problems but we're trying to offer a better answer for one of them.

Hrmm... I was one of the riders who used to keep my levers way closer to vertical than horizontal. But I never really suffered much from arm pump. But then I'm kind of a freak at 6'7" with size 13 hands. I could stay low with a flat back and still reach my levers just...more
