When creating tread profiles for the first Ritchey tires, Tom looked at the way tires wore down to identify where they needed tread the most. The result of this observation is Vector Force Analysis, an approach that had been used in car tire design, but never before with bicycles. From VFA, Tom designed some of the more iconic Ritchey tires, including the Olympic- and world championship-proven SpeedMax and Z-Max treads. Now with robust Stronghold casing and tubeless-ready beads, Ritchey tires are some of the most engaging tires on the market today.
