If you’re into 22″ bikes, we have some good news. The guys at QBMX dropped a sneak preview of a new 22″ BMX tire that Wethepeople will be releasing soon. Not much for information on the tire yet, but we have a feeling that there will be more for a 22″ bike beyond just the tires coming from Wethepeople. I mean, why would they only release a 22″ tire? We’ve been seeing more brands release 22″ products since the guys at Faction kicked things off a few years ago, and it seems like things are starting to pick up for that particular size of BMX bike. We’ll keep you posted once we hear more about these tires from Wethepeoeple. We can’t imagine it’ll be too long if they were down to let this drop online!

The Devon Smillie signature Fuego Tire from Flybikes is hitting BMX shops and mail-orders around the world. Today, Flybikes gave us the full details on this tire and it looks like a good amount of technology went into this one. The tire features a similar tread pattern as the classic Ruben tire, but more geared toward street riding with a smoother center tread. Inside you can find a “HPPR” layer, which is a High Pressure & Puncture Resistant layer, below that is a High Pressure casing and then there is a pinch resistant layer at the bottom. The tire also has a harder rubber on the sidewall to help resist grab while grinding. Here’s some words from Flybikes about the tire…
“The main goal for the “Fuego” tire was to create the most durable tire possible while still keeping the weight to a minimum, we searched the latest technologies to help achieve these three key features.
1. Although chances are slim that the “Fuego” tire will ever see 120 PSI in its lifetime, by using a new unique technology the tire can accept extremely high pressures, but also, due to its heavy-duty construction remain extremely stiff at the lower pressures that Devon runs.
2. Another feature that’s often overlooked is the addition of reinforcement at the tires bead contact surface area to help avoid pinch-flats. Devon’s “Fuego” tire has this.
3. And finally, the surface on a street tire that gets the most abuse, “the sidewall”. First up, we used a significantly harder compound rubber that has the perfect combination of properties for superior strength, unmatched durability, while still remaining flexible and lite. Last but not least, we brought back our original “protection line”, featured on Rubens first signature tire, which helps protect the tires sidewall during grinds and other street abuse.” – Flybikes
“I’m really hyped with how the “Fuego” tire came out, its exactly what I want in a tire. I love how we took the O.G. Ruben tire and transformed it into a street version. The smooth compact tread gives it a buttery feel when cruising and is super grippy in the streets. We also added the “protection line” that was on the original Ruben tire to help keep a distance off the tires sidewall while grinding, giving the tire a better chance of lasting longer.” – Devon Smillie
The Fuego Tire is available through Flybikes dealers in 2.30″ only with colors of black, Dark blue, tan and white for $32.99 (black) – $35.99 (blue, tan, white).
