Lightweight, wide, and functional. What more could kids ask for these days?

Tread Pattern: Keyboard Key Blocks

Sizes: 20 x 2.10, 20 x 2.35
Color / Sidewall Options: All Black, Black with Tan Walls, Orange with Tan Walls
Max PSI: 100
Weight: 1lb 9oz-1lb 6oz

Other Info & Details: This tire is full of Aaron-isms like his grips and seat. Some were straight from the Bossman’s mouth, some were relayed from fans and riders. The center tread is even backwards to write on the ground in the perfect conditions.
The different versions can get confusing.
Dual Ply = Most durable and most affordable version.
Plyte = Lightweight dual ply version.
Foldable tan wall = Dual Ply Construction, but Kevlar beads to save weight.
Klyte = Plyte construction combined with Kevlar beads to be the ultimate in weight saving. Also, the most expensive.

What were your goals when designing this product?
While the tread pattern and the compound have everything to do with function, this tire was also made to look cool and be fun. It’s based on a previous tire with Aaron’s tweaks to make it better. The 2.35 is our biggest tire to date.

Why are your tires better than others, or what makes them different from others on the market?
Who else has random sentences and gibberish from the Boss?

Foldable tan wall = Dual Ply Construction, but Kevlar beads to save weight.
Klyte = Plyte construction combined with Kevlar beads to be the ultimate in weight saving. Also, the most expensive.

This tire was also designed from our older tires, but updated as per Mike’s suggestions. They have been around for a while, so if it ain’t broke…New sizes coming soon.

Why are your tires better than others, or what makes them different from others on the market?
They say Aitken on the sidewall. Is there a better name that says “Awesome?” I doubt it.

– Foldable Kevlar beaded
– Improved traction
– Special durable compound

What were your goals when designing this product?
To create the first foldable, lightweight tire.

Why are your tires better than others, or what makes them different from others on the market?
The MAC tire is the "World’s First Freestyle Folding Tire!" It changes the weight of the complete bike dramatically because it’s less rotating mass at the end of the frame, and at the same time it strengthens a lot by using Kevlar material. Most tires blow up with big pressure, and they get bigger than labeled. The Kevlar strips hold everything in original shape and make the tire really, really light. This new tire is made of hard rubber and holds up to 120psi.
– Markus Reich

The StreetBlock is not a "jack-of-all-trades" tire. Its focus is acceleration. With its less-rounded profile and very low rolling resistant tread, the StreetBlock picks up speed—fast. Rows of small shoulder knobs angled to provide smooth and confident cornering at higher speeds.

Why are your tires better than others, or what makes them different from others on the market?
Most tires wear flat after months of abuse. The control keeps it shape when the tread wears down, even after skidding on it for months. It has more threads per inch in the tire making it tuff and light weight.

Why are your tires better than others, or what makes them different from others on the market?
We didn't call it the command for nothing. This tire is perfect for the person looking for high speed cornering at the trails. The wire bead gives stability to hold up, and the aggressive tread gives it grip in loose dirt.

There is a higher thread count in these tires. This gives you a better surface area and a stronger tire. This tire doesn't wear flat form sticking your foot in your back tire to stop like most. It holds it roundness.
