JConcepts have announced the release of their SCT Octagons tyres in the Aqua A2 compound. Developed for high-bite, slick tyre racing, the beauty of the Octagons lay just beneath the surface where the designers have removed a little surface area in the geometry based pattern. The carcass is new, slightly rounder and lower profile than JConcepts slick tyres of the past and it incorporates heavy X-pattern style inner ribbing for increased support. The continuous thickness carcass is light-weight and utilises the industry standard 3.0” x 2.2” mounting bead. Like the name suggests, the embossed tread which is Octagon shaped is repeated and overlapped to form a subculture of grippy surface edges for dry or abrasive surfaces. The package includes the Dirt-Tech inserts for best possible sidewall and thread support.
