The Shadow Conspiracy have released another sneak preview of what they will be releasing in their March drop. Above is their new Contender Tire that we got a preview of back in September during Interbike 2015. The Contender tire will be available in two versions; Featherweight and Welterweight. The Featherweight version will feature a folding kevlar bead and a 120 TPI (Threads Per Inch) thread count making for a lighter weight tire that is more ideal for park and dirt riders. The Welterweight features a wire bead and a 60 TPI and is more ideal for street because it has a sturdier construction with the thicker threads. Both tires will feature the same multi-surface tread pattern with deeper grooves and thick lines to provide plenty of traction without sacrificing a smooth rolling tire, a 110 PSI rating and sizes of 2.20″ and 2.30″. No color options have been announced yet, but we would imagine we’ll be seeing a splash of color on these at some point.
The Featherweight version will weigh in at 18 oz. (2.20″) and 20 oz. (2.35″)
The Welterweight version will weigh in at 22 oz. (2.20″) and 24 oz. (2.35″)
Both versions of the tire will be hitting BMX shops and mail-orders that carry The Shadow Conspiracy worldwide in March!
