Fast Traction Compounding
Roll fast, grip well and last a long time. That’s the three-headed dog that tire designers wrestle with in formulating tire compounding. It used to be that you had to sacrifice in one area to gain in another, i.e. tires that gripped well generally wore out quickly. But with the ability to apply rubbers of differing durometers (a measure of hardness) and characteristics it’s possible to create custom rubber compounds that roll fast, grip well and have excellent durability. We call our custom compounding Fast Traction and we worked closely with riders of every discipline in multiple regions to find compounds and tread patterns that excel in their given category. Wether it’s fast training rides and urban commutes, muddy technical trails or desert sand and rocks, there’s a Fast Traction option to match where and how you ride.
• Road tires with Fast Traction feature compounding specific to racing, training or urban commuting.
• MTB tires with Fast Traction feature compounding specific to all mountain or cross country riding.
• Fast Traction offered in single, double (2d) and triple (3d) compounding configurations to exactly match where and how you ride.
