Tires are an important pick when you race BMX. Over the years the knobby tires have gone as the tracks are now built ultra smooth with tarmac turns, and wooden or concrete starting hills. Minimum rolling resistence and maximum grip are still the key elements. Radio offers newly designed rubber that deserves looking into. Today we also present the rims that Radio developed together with their team riders. Read on to see what's new from Radio:
The Radio rims are very special, they are super light and almost all tubeless ready. They are all our own design also, no rebranding or open models here. We tested them all for 2 years with the team. In that time no one has broken them, which is are for such light rims.

BMX world champion Twan van Gendt now has his own replica of Tokyo's Olympic BMX track. In Ammerzoden, where he made his first meters on the BMX as a 4-year-old, Twan built an identical part of the Olympic track together with Red Bull. Twan van Gendt became world champion in Belgium last year, because he left all his competitors behind from the start. That was because he could often train on the track at the time. To have a chance to win a gold medal in Tokyo at the Olympic Games, Twan actually wanted this again: “I know I have to make the difference at the start and the first two jumps, that's my strength. And when Red Bull asked me how they could help me, I said: with my start. Together we came up with the idea of rebuilding this track, so that I can perfect that first part in the coming months. ”
