Tread life will last longer due to a new tread design comprising of an evenly interlocking pattern which provides better wear over time and incorporate stone ejectors to stop drilling effects. A new rubber compound development has made the tyre harder wearing on tarmac and reduces chipping and cuts on gravels.
Traction is more aggressive thanks to the new tread pattern which includes Side-Bite lugs in the sidewall improve traction in mud, snow and on rocks. Raised bars in the shoulder help release compacted mud for better traction in soft soil. 3-D steps create a biting edge for improved snow traction.
