“Control and confidence is what this tire was designed to inspire—all while pushing personal limits,” says Broste. “From a design standpoint, I wanted to make the transition time from center to edge shorter and give more support to the outer edges by increasing the block size and support to give confidence in cornering at speed. The center knobs were also beefed up to increase braking and acceleration.”

    What’s the point of making this announcement if you can’t buy the product? I need some new 2.5/6 tires, and I’d love to run something new to market. How about some Goodyear’s or Terrene’s. Nope. Pre-order only. Oh well. I need tires now, Maybe next year. Oh right by then I’ll have forgotten Terrene even exists.
