Saw some other Onza (I think) skinwalls in my lbs a while back. From memory they were about £30 each.

This is onza tyres and not the Onza that is here in the UK that did the reproduction porcelain and grips of old onza.

hence the logo is different?

bandwagon ... yep but hope others get in on the act with decent tyres


Does look to be different from Onza / SuperCycles.

...is it me or does the skinwall look a little wide?



Yes.

Also very 'canvasy'...

Wonder how long the sidewalls will hold up...?

Apparently Evans are the official Onza tyres UK distributor so have popped them an email asking if they're going to be stocking them.


I emailed Dave at Onza about these a few months ago , he said they were meant to be in stock at Evans mid November. Hopefully they'll get them in stock soon. They look like a good tyre to me and should look really cool on the bike.

Was just checking the German distributors website and from the looks of things, they aren't stocking them.

If they brought back the Rip and Rail combo, I'd be a very happy boy!
