SOYO Track and Road Racing Tires

Soyo Gold Star track tires have been used in Keirin for good reason; silk seamless design and supple as hell. At $270 they are not a cheap date by any means, but I bet they're worth every penny. We are waiting for the pump chucks that will work with the Woods (Dunlop) valve; will be included with purchase of every pair.

If you think that THOSE are ridiculous...Just take a looksee at Soyo's CR $500 road racing tire.

Exerpt from Soyo's Brochure-

The road race version of the seamless tire is finally coming out from SOYO, the "Japanese only-one brand" for keirin tires.

The highest Japanese craftsmanship crystallized in the skills making this tire totally seamless.

It realized incomparable light weight for smooth acceleration.

The round section gives better attachment to the rim and the supple finish enhances the grip.

It secures the stable cornering at high speed to lead the racers to the best ride for the decisive battle.

I love how the Japanese language is so descriptive. Thanks Kay!

I have to say...

...even though there are enough CRAZY moves in this video to make your head spin, 3:04 has to be my favorite. Notice what's on his head.

Looky...Looky...NOS 75 Disc Wheel!

Now this is a find! The feeling when pulling this out of the original box/packaging was something one doesn't get on a regular basis.

Ever wonder what 50 lbs. of Chris King headsets look like?
