Dear Mr Onza, please bring back the Rip and Rail 8)

The only tyres that seemed to work on wet clay and chalk.


Are they that good? I've got a very good set of kevlar beaded ones - just waiting for the right bike to put them on! :wink:

They need to get the ratio of amber to black down.
To me it looks as though they are aiming to the Dugast fans rather than us retro geezers.

Anyone tried these new Onza tyres yet? I was considering the Canis skinwall on my modern bike.

They are probably quite good. Their Ibex freeride/DH tyre is great although very pricy (in Australia at least).

It would be great to see Rip and Rail, Porcs come back.

Actually Panaracer did just that a little while ago. Unfortunately most of us missed it completely and they were all sold by the time we noticed.



I contacted the Panaracer importers and they agreed to order some for me. So I've got a batch of Smoke Classic 2.1 amber walls coming in at the end of May. As soon as they are available I will post a For Sale thread.

Nice work! I will be keeping an eye out for your sale thread.

Tyres have landed. They are up in the For Sale section.

Thanks,

I'm waiting a pair of Onza Cannis 2.25.

Looks so beautiful, and a technology of a actual tyre and light

Also the Ibex for more heavy terrain

Can we have something new in 1.9 or 2.0 please, most of these are too large for old frames. The Onzas look really good too. I'd have a set of Canis in 2.0.

Carl.
