The second new BMX tire from Merritt is their Option tire. This tire features a unique tread pattern that is smooth in the center and has deeper grooves and knurling on the sides for extra traction. You can find a thicker rubber in the center to help with shock absorbtion and increase the life of the tire, then tapers on the sides to help reduce weight where the rubber doesn’t need to be thicker. The sidewalls also feature their new “Sidewall Technology” which uses a ultra-hard, low-friction rubber compound that reduces drag from grinds and helps to increase the life of the sidewall that can wear from grinding as well.
The Option tire is available in 20 x 2.35″ with color options of black, gum or blue and a weight of 27.4 oz.
