Here at Wethepeople, Rubber is something we’ve always taken seriously. Not only is it the connecting point between your bike and what you’re riding, it also makes a huge difference as to how your bike feels. After the success of the Grippin and Feelin tires we wanted to work with the team on a fresh new design based around the needs of the modern street rider. After a long process of testing compounds and refining the tread design we came up with something quite special. The Stickin Tire is the successful end result of over a year of blood, sweat and tears. Using a specially designed shape and specific rubber compound allowing it to stick to literally anything, yet enable you to grind endlessly without getting your tire stuck on the side of the rail or ledge, this street slick beast was designed to grind and slide like nothing else.
When designing the Stickin tire, we carefully listened to the team about what they really needed in a tire. Although personal tastes change from rider to rider, the general consensus was the same. They wanted a fast rolling, long lasting tire which wouldn't blow out on the sidewalls during grinds. To combat this, we used a high quality 120 TPI casing, which firmly holds together the carcass of the tire, even when the tire wants to deform on big impacts or when caught on a ledge or rail. The tread of the tire, flows smoothly into the sidewall with no unnecessary material, giving you plenty of rubber where you need it for traction, but the slick tread prevents anything from getting caught and ripped off and damaged if you are grinding on uneven surfaces.
Wethepople PRO Ed Zunda was a major part in the development of the Stickin tire, and was involved with the testing form the very first sample. When you do as many hardway 360's as Ed, you're going to have experienced a blow-out or two over the years. Ed swears by the Stickin tire and rides them in the 2.30" size front and rear for that bit of extra clearance during grinds.
Whilst Ed rides the 2,30" Stickin tires, many riders prefer their tires as wide as possible to absorb impacts and drops, so we decide to open up our first 2.40" size tire mould for the Stickin. Wethepople team member and Ice hardway champion Jordan Godwin also helped us with the development and testing of the Stickin tire, and prefers the wider 2,40" size in the NEW Dark Gum colourway.
