“We’ve been working with our latest Éclat PRO Felix Prangenberg on a signature tire ever since he joined our ranks late last year. One of the most productive and progressive riders in the game, Felix was always adamant that this tire would be able to withstand his 24/7 riding regime.
The CREATURE tire is nothing short of a technical masterpiece. Combining the advanced technology and materials of our MIRAGE tire and the aggressive tread and larger size of our MORROW tire we were able to create what is, in our minds, the most advanced all-round BMX tire to date.
Manufactured by the master tire makers at MAXXIS, the CREATURE uses the highest quality 120tpi casing and a unique fast-rolling and grippy dual compound tread design. A tire that is designed to kill it on all surfaces and one that will be loved by all kinds of riders.” – Eclat
