Description
 
Complete unit includes fork, hub, tube, and tire. Order spare or individual parts here.

Upgrade your RV tailwheel to a smooth-riding, low noise pneumatic tire with our Condor2 system. This listing is for a complete retrofit unit and includes the Condor2 Fork, Talon aluminum hub, 200x50 6-ply Aero Classic Tire and Tost Aero tube.

Please note: though it looks similar, the Condor2 fork has different dimensions than the Doug Bell tailwheel. The Bell fork, and other forks designed for the standard 6" wheel, are not large enough to accommodate the 200x50 tire.

In addition to the benefits of the pneumatic tire, the 200x50 tire is nearly 8 inches in diameter, lending your airplane maximum tailwheel obstacle clearance and raising the tailwheel for improved visibility over-the-nose. Using the same 3/8" axle bolt that is standard on Van's equipment allows you to easily swap out to a solid tire in the event of a flat.

Please be aware that pneumatic tires can and do go flat, and a smaller tire is somewhat more prone to this problem than your larger main tires. Even with the best tires and tubes available, you should expect and be prepared for the occasional flat. We recommend purchasing extra tubes and/or keeping a solid or foam-filled spare on hand in case it is needed. We cannot be responsible for tires that go flat. We recommend running these tires at 50psi and checking the pressure regularly. Tires that get low on pressure fail much faster.

The whole Condor2 assembly (fork, tube, tire, hub) weighs in at 3 lbs, 13 oz.

Please note: as of 21 November, 2019, we are backordered on our primed and white powder coat finishes. We will have more as soon as we can get them made. If you would like to be notified when these items are back in stock, send us an email at blake@flyboyaccessories.com
