Check out Chase Hawk (and Ryan Nyquist) in this X Games commercial, along with other notable people. X is coming up!
Everybody loves Chase Hawk. His style is fast, stylish and smooth. The same can be said about his signature tires.
Chase’s tire is the first slick we’ve ever done, and the final product came directly from lots of discussions with the Hawk man himself. Already a fan of our Aitken tires, Chase wanted to add more variety to our line-up by doing something completely different for his design. He mentioned that we didn’t have a slick, so we went from there. The Hawk tire has a fast, low-profile tread that is grippy, simple, and visually unique. This tread sticks to cement while still catering to Chase’s style at the trails as well. These things look great on a bike and can be seen on many, so it’s no surprise that lots of newer tires now have similar design cues. In some cases you will find that these look-a-likes are very heavy by comparison, so beware of the faux-Hawks out there.

Chase Hawk shows Kriss Kyle a good time around Austin, and get some sweet clips while doing so.
Chase has been on Etnies for a while now but they’ve been taking their time putting together his official “Welcome to the Team” video and it was definitely worth the wait. The first 3 and half minutes of this was cool enough on its own but then they follow it up with a full on video part. Hit play and get psyched.
The dirt portion of Texas Toast is kind of a lawless land. We get dudes hitting the jumps backwards, random rebel runs and Chase Hawk and Chad Osburn running trains for ALL their final runs. Here’s Chase cranking a 360 locomotive with Chad in tow. Hit up Dig BMX for more photos.
the age-old question which has vexed philosopher kings since the dawn of man: what really is best in life? is it to crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women? or is it, as I believe, best to shred the gnar on a backyard ramp with your bros? you already know!
