The Mirage tire is a new high-performance BMX tire designed over the course of the past year with the eclat PRO team. Many riders on the team were asking us for a while for a lighter tire, and for good reason too, to reduce rotational weight. Rotational weight is far more noticeable, and can really affect the way your bike feels and handles.
To create a tire that weighed significantly less than our current offering was not an easy task since reducing the weight of a tire if not done right can sacrifice the durability or performance. We took our time with this one, after a year in development and working with one of the best tire manufacturers in the industry, the “Mirage tire” was born.
