mrjoek I'm not a hoarder, but have kept some silly shit over the years. Packages from my bmx parts from 2001 until today. Primo Wall grips were the shit.

mrjoek Eventually these grips will be installed on first run ody lumberjack bars, and then put on the gb barcode. They look so good with the seat. #terribleone #revengeindustries #dakine 5h

t1stagram We are very stoked to have tires starting to show up in all parts of the world. I did however want to share a few thoughts about their width and how they are sized, as it differs a bit from what we are used to. BMX has a sizing system that everyone is familiar with. 2.1", 2.2", 2.3", 2.4", 2.5"... These are all numbers we associate with the width of tires. However, due to the shape of our tires, there is a bit of difference to this, even though the overall width corresponds with those numbers. The goal with these tires was for them to grip like a beast. And with that in mind, came both the dual compound rubber, as well as the shape we designated the profile of the tire to have. What we came up with creates more of a "lip" at the outer edge of the tire, and that lip plays a big role with how well they grip. However, the lip sits right in the area where your tire needs to clear the frame/fork. So it's possible that you may have to run a narrower tire by number, than you usually would. As far as T-1 frames go, they roughly have 2.52 inches of clearance in the back with the tire slammed. So the 2.4" is a bit too big to run in the back comfortably, as it's actually 2.44" wide when it's fully inflated. So 8 hundredths of an inch doesn't allow for much room on the sides. The 2.2" however fits perfectly. I have included an image to help explain the area I am talking about. The dotted blue line shows the profile of a more commonly found tire profile. You can see the difference that the lip on our tires create. But once again, it was for the purpose of grip. Some other frames have plenty of clearance to fit both sized tires, but I just wanted to mention this, so if you run a 2.4" tire in the back usually, double check your frame's clearance in this area first. Thanks for taking the time to read this!

  •   t1stagram As of now, there has been no talk of tan walls thus far. @ridegold_matt_ross @ 2h
  •   t1stagram Haven't noticed any slowing down during grinding. The very most outer edge of the tire is the same hardness as the middle. The softer compound is in between the 2. @rattman_bmx_187 2h
  •   rattman_bmx_187 Sounds good. Gonna get one of theses as soon as they come out. Thanks for the info. @t1stagram 2h
  •   t1stagram I'd love to see a 2.1 down the road ! Hopefully people like the tires enough to where the costs of doing another size could be afforded. @randle_t1 2h

t1stagram We are very fortunate to receive a lot of support from die-hard T-1 supporters in Greece. Dimitris Tsetsilas recently went under the needle in order to show his support permanently on his body. Thanks! "Fresh tattoo with love... T-1 for ever."

t1stagram The Animal x T-1 Ursa Major (2.4") and Ursa Minor (2.2") tires have arrived at Animal and will be available in shops around the states shortly. We'll post more info about the width/shape of the tires later today.
"This special handling, dual compound tire is a collaboration with the legendary Terrible One. This proprietary blend of compounds provides for the fastest and grippiest tire out there. The hard compound on top provides a lower rolling resistance while the soft compound on the outside provides increased corner grip. Whether you are on the street, park or pool this tire has you covered."

t1stagram Animal x T-1 tires now available in Australia at @backbonebmx Thanks! "Here they are, the long awaited Animal x T-1 tire in stock now! Now they are here, we can see that these are made to roast. These are limited as, so don't sleep if you're chasin'. Joe Rich at Terrible One wanted a tire that was for 'riding tranny and roasting concrete' - he set to work with Animal Bikes to create a truly unique tire for just such a purpose. The result is the Ursa Major (2.4" width) & Ursa Minor (2.2") Animal x T-1 collaboration tire.

There are a few things that make this tire unique, so we'll list them below. We'll be sure to update it with a description from Joe as it comes.

Square edged shape: This tire isn't rounded, as you may be able to see from the photos, it has a flat centre, with two angled edges, that then lead to a flat side. When you lean over into the corner, you can see that there is more surface area to hold you where you need to be.

Center groove around the whole tire: This would be to help grip if you are to slide from turning on flat.

Super soft surface compound: Feels really tacky to help wit grip. This is the only tire that feels this grippy in your hands brand new.

Thin sidewall: Actually provides a faster ride, as the tire is able to absorb more. Also makes the tire less 'boggy' and less weight!"
