Ride “R-1 High Grip Compound” F1 tire
Ride just released the latest evolution of its Formula 1 tire. Unlike the successful “H-1″ (medium compound) and “S-1″ (Soft Compound) rubber formulas, the “R-1″ recipe is based on the now famous Touring Car compound known as the “Re Series” as used during the latest Euro Touring Series season. The “R-1″ rubber formula has been slightly adapted for F1 applications and the tire inner profile/belt design is entirely new. Long track test on both high and low bite conditions revealed stunning stability, amazing cornering ability in both tiny or open tracks and a great ease of driving. The “R-1″ tire is available as a pair for Front and Rear including inner sponge but also available as pre-glued pairs on Tamiya F104 type front and rear wheels.
