JConcepts’ new Chasers 1/8th buggy tyres rely on hefty, medium lugs which are angular in multiple directions. The horizontal type tread has a striking similarity to the trusty Crossbow tyre but the Chasers have a lower, closer lug arrangement which gives improved responsiveness and bites in medium, high and low grip conditions. The wet and dry condition tyre has small recessed cuts in the top of the tread for extra edges and increased formability over terrain. The centre overlapping bar treatment increases durability in the highest wear region of the tyre. Included come JConcepts’ latest Dirt-Tech inserts and the tyre will become available in blue, green and red compound.
