Hoyt St is committed to elevating the quality, performance and reliability of every component we source and offer to the community. When we explored getting into pneumatics, we realized that the vast majority of tires were co-opted from other low speed industries (wheelchairs, wheel barrows, scooters, etc). One commonly used tire was speed rated to only 10kph; we determined to address that and worked with a reputable vendor willing to take on the challenge. We're extremely pleased with the results.
Similarly, we're moving all urethane wheels over to US sources as we believe they best understand the end use and are committed to both performance and the community.
