It’s undoubtedly crazy how dialed parts are for kids these days on 20 inch bikes–and now even 16 and 18 inch bikes are getting some serious attention from companies as well. United just dropped info on their new 18″ Direct tires–take a look at the tires above and their statement about ‘em below. You can also click through to the United website to see a few more images.

The United Direct tyre is our ultra fast high pressure tyre that was designed and developed with input from our team riders. It is now also available in an 18″ size for the smaller riders out there.The directional pattern features a wider centre for improved balance and stability and the whole tyre is covered with a fine micro knurling which will grip all surfaces at speed. Look no further if you want something fast and grippy which is perfect for street, park and even at the trails when used on the rear.
