“I‘m really psyched on the Odyssey Plyte Mike Aitken street tires because they’re good for everything and they can hold 100 psi if I want to ride fast at cement parks” - Matt Beringer Mike Aitken has designed a few different versions of tires, and is one of the most popular among professional and non-professional riders. The first version is designed specifically with dirt in mind. Based off the classic knobby front tire, the 2.125 Aitken is available in a foldable kevlar beaded version (Klyte) or a non foldable steel beaded version. Dirt tires don’t usually see the sidewall wear that street tires do, so to keep the weight down, the knobby 2.125 is only available in single ply, and is rated at 80 psi.
With all this talk about dirt, Mike and Chase Hawk use this tire on the front at all times, on street, park and everything they ride. Mike also knows not everyone uses an aggressive knobby like He and Chase so he has the “semi-knobby” version also. Based loosely on the Path tire, the 2.25 and 1.9 versions have deeper treads that the Path, but are still designed for all around use, and high speeds. The 2.25 is our biggest tire and typically used as a front, but is also used in “monster truck” set ups, where you use the 2.25 front and back. The 2.25 is available is Plyte and Klyte versions. Plyte being our special lightweight dual ply. The 1.9 version is typically a rear tire and available in Plyte, Klyte, and heavy duty dual ply.
