Merritt FT1 Brian Foster Signature Tires Available Now

bmx trails dirt jumping dirtjumping

Merritt’s very highly anticipated FT1 tires are finally available! For those of you not in the know, the FT1 is Brian Foster’s brand new signature tire. Merritt just got them in and they are on their way to dealers as we speak. They come in 2.25″ and in either black or blue. A whole lot of thought went into these tires and I would be doing them a huge injustice by not letting the man who designed them explain it in his words. Check out some more pics and what Sean Curran had to say about them after the jump!

“Trails nowadays are nothing like they used to be, very little pedaling and/or braking and the dirt is usually rock hard, it doesn’t make sense to mimic MX tires (that have to accelerate, brake and turn in soft dirt) with big knobs anymore. That lead to giving the FT1 a relatively smooth center section, to make the tire fast. Turning is when an increase in grip (instead of outright speed) is needed, lean the bike over in a turn and the micro-knobs come into play. The micro-knobs provide a perfect balance of surface area, stability and space in between for when the dirt might be a little soft still. The micro-knobs actually stick up above the main surface a super small amount, this allows them to sink into that slightly soft dirt and give an increase in surface area contact, but the amount they are raised isn’t enough to affect stability or grip on hard surfaces. At the edges of the tread pattern are smooth tread blocks that help protect the sidewall on ramps and street, you’d have to lean over more than a moto GP rider to get that part of tire on the ground, so anything in that area of a tire is about how it contacts ledges, rails, etc. Will be available in black or blue in 2.25, with more sizes in the works. The FT1 tire is designed for the way things are now, not how they used to be.”
