Mounted up on those new Ritchey P-29er mountain bikes were these almost-in-production Syncros FLavor 29er tires. Word is their first shipment of production samples lands in a couple weeks, and we’re on the list for a set to check out as soon as they do. Basics: 29×2.25, dual compound casing and tubeless ready construction. Judging by the “FL” caps in the name – code for Freakin’ Light in Syncros parlance – and the low profile tread pattern, we’re thinking this could be a real XC killer!

Given Ritchey’s just-now entry to the 29er market with a bike and the fact that Syncros (which they own) has been more geared toward the bigger, rougher side of mountain biking, this kinda, sorta helps explain why Tom’s new tires were 26″only.

Hit ‘more’ for full straight-on tread shot…
