Sneak Peek: Colony Exon Tires
« on: September 21, 2017, 08:02:19 PM »

@flataustralia posted a photo of the new Colony Exon flatland tires. As you can clearly see the maximum pressure is 110 PSI and there was probably no way to write that even bigger ;-) They come as 20 x 1.75 and should be a great addition to the Colony Exon flatland range. More details are yet to be announced.

Looks great! Any idea the weight on these? Steel or Kevlar?

It not on Colony's website yet but it seems that this tire has already reached shops in Japan.

The tire has a Kevlar bead but it's heavy at 470g... that's because it has so much rubber thread, so it should last a long time.
