In our last post, we learned that Scott Matual was testing the new 22″S&M Speedball tire.
Designed for dirt or park, the tires look like they’re going to be a solid tire choice once testing is complete.
And Matual is not pulling out any stops in his testing.
S&M shared on their Facebook page today that Scott Matual took home a 2nd and a 4th in 46 and over Expert this past weekend at the Great NW Nationals on his 22″ (with the prototype tires presumably)!

Even with the momentum of more and more bike brands entering the 22″ market, one of the sticking points in the adoption of this wheel/bike size is the dearth of quality tire options.
Thankfully, this looks like it is starting to change.
Much in the same way that S&M was one of the first big companies to jump into the 22″ scene (after Faction pioneered it) with a 22″ frame kit and tires…S&M is again trying to fill the gap of tire options with some new choices.
Case in point, this week we heard the news that Scott Matual is currently testing some prototype SPEEDBALL 22″ tires for S&M.
The tires sport a broken up center tread from the TRACKMARK tire but in a normal casing with wire bead. Designed for dirt or park, they will come in 2.25″ and 2.4″ sizes.
Nice to see some more 22″ tire choices on the horizon.
