Fireball returns

Almost…

I have sourced some very simmilar tyres to fireball and will hopefully be getting some in the new year as they’re being specially produced for a 2003 bike, I think they’ll be 26’s but perhaps 24 will be available.

I’ll post a photo as soon as I get my hands on one.

Re: Fireball returns

I heard that another company has now patented the flamed tread pattern. Dyno
had not done it. I heard the tire should be available soon as well.

As cool as the fire patern is, it was not the primary attribute that made it attractive as an urban uni tyre. In addition to high volume at relatively low weight, the tall side walls terminate in a thick ridge at the tread, presenting a square, slick profile.

Although my Fireball slumbers in the closet, Tommy Thompson, The Human Dynamo, The Tominator, The Tomster, reports that the ridged edge is all that has to grip a target to go to rubber.

There are several manufacturers of flame treaded tyres, one of which was actualy designed by the same dude that did the Dyno- but, I believe, bairs little resembalance where it maters most -in the ride.
