JConcepts Kosmos 1/8th buggy tyre

JConcepts have introduced the Kosmos 1/8th buggy tyre for dry, rutted and dusty Euro-style tracks. Developed with input of IFMAR World Champion, David Ronnefalk the JC design team took to a rectangular based pin which has the forward bite muscle to boost a 1/8th buggy. The staggered rows create a unique zig/zag affect at certain views giving it a 3D mind puzzle affect. In fact, the design is four rows deep of off-set and staggered sections when compared to some traditional tyres which rely on two. The tread also has connected several sections of pins with a V-feature to strengthen the base to make super soft compounds manageable even in high-speed conditions. The outer rows of pins have been clipped and held back for maximum cornering consistency on bumpy and chunky conditions. The inside of the carcass boasts the standard three radial ribs that help minimise tyre expansion under hard acceleration and cushions hard impacts. The tyre includes the Dirt-Tech closed cell inserts and it comes in a variety of compounds including blue, green, black, R2, O2 and Y2.
