Everybody loves Chase Hawk. His style is fast, stylish and smooth. The same can be said about his signature tires.
Chase’s tire is the first slick we’ve ever done, and the final product came directly from lots of discussions with the Hawk man himself. Already a fan of our Aitken tires, Chase wanted to add more variety to our line-up by doing something completely different for his design. He mentioned that we didn’t have a slick, so we went from there. The Hawk tire has a fast, low-profile tread that is grippy, simple, and visually unique. This tread sticks to cement while still catering to Chase’s style at the trails as well. These things look great on a bike and can be seen on many, so it’s no surprise that lots of newer tires now have similar design cues. In some cases you will find that these look-a-likes are very heavy by comparison, so beware of the faux-Hawks out there.
Now available in:

After hanging out at a contest deep in the jungles of Ecuador, Broc Raiford and Hoang Tran headed to Quito, a massive city almost 10,000 feet above sea level. Check out part two of this two-part series that focuses on the street riding they did while in Quito.
Broc Raiford and Hoang Tran got the invite to Ecuador to hang out at El Coca Extremo, a contest a remote jungle town deep in the Amazon rainforest. That sounded awesome, so we jumped on the opportunity and afterwards headed to Quito, Ecuador’s capital and thriving metropolis, for some street riding. Check out part one of this two-part series that focuses on our journey to Coca and our time at the contest, and stay tuned for the street riding edit on Monday.
