Insight: Shadow Conspiracy – Valor Tire

Shadow Conspiracy Valor BMX tire

There has been a lot of talk about tires lately. I don’t know what has lead to it, but it has, for the most part, been a good thing. Over the years, tires have changed quite a bit thanks to trends, riding styles and the use of different materials that stepped away from the traditional tires we saw for years. After 4 years, The Shadow Conspiracy decided it was time to take their popular Undertaker tire to the drawing board and give it a modern revamp. After a lot of research, design and testing… The Valor tire was released.

One of the biggest perks to working in the BMX industry is that there’s a good chance you will be riding a dialed bike with all the latest and greatest from the brands you represent. One of the perks of running your own brand is that you can ride a dialed bike with all the parts you spent months and months working on developing from idea to the final product. Ryan Sher has been riding some real nice bikes over his career and you better believe as brand manager for Subrosa he is keeping his bike running smooth with all the latest parts they’re cooking up down in Florida. Ryan just built himself up a brand new Villicus Prime II, so we figured it was more than a perfect chance to catch up and get a look at this unit he’s running these days! Let’s get to it!

If there’s one person who I’m always stoked to see something new from, it’s Ruben Alcantara. Between his riding and everything else he does, like the work he has been doing designing skateparks lately, it’s always something awesome.
We were lucky enough to catch up with him the other day to find out what is new in his life and find out what he has cooking up here in the near future. It sounds like we can expect a full video part, more riding and plenty of amazing parks popping up. Let’s take a look and see what he had to say!
