JConcepts Scorpios 2.2″ crawler tyre

JConcepts Scorpios 2.2" crawler tyre

JConcepts have unveiled the new Scorpios 2.2″ all-terrain crawling and rock racing tyre. Ideal for vehicles like the Axial Yeti, the Scorpios scale looking tread, extra tall 152mm size and profile, jump out as the most obvious features. The padded arrangement of tread makes the tyre ideal for transitioning from the hard road to dirt and then into rocky and uneven terrain. Once power is applied to the vehicle, the tread spacing opens up which allows for some deep digging making it a great working tire in dirt and muddy conditions. The flexibility of the compound combined with the close arrangement gives the tyre a grippy feel but still maintains that all important look. The large overall height provides plenty of ground clearance for an abundance of terrain and internal grid ribbing help maintain its upright structure during hard loads and on power bursts. The tyres include a soft open cell foam insert capable of standing up the super soft compound but flexible enough for sharp terrain.
