JConcepts Scorpios 1.9″ all-terrain scaling tyre

JConcepts Scorpios 1.9" all-terrain scaling tyre

Following the Ruptures 1.9″ performance scaling tyre JConcepts also introduce the Scorpios, an all-terrain variant. It features scale looks and extra tall size and profile with a closely knit tread resembling a 1:1 scale tyre. 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 tyre in dirt and muddy conditions. Each tread block has finely cut edges with a healthy radius where the block meets the tyre body. Each block features slight cuts on top to open up and create some sling space while the outer most lug extends down the sidewall to stiffen the upper carcass and increase the pinch grip. The flexibility of the compound combined with the close arrangement gives the tire 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.
