JConcepts Ellipse 2.2” 2WD & 4WD front tyres

JConcepts have introduced the 2.2” 2WD and 4WD front tyre variants of their popular Ellipse tread. The Ellipse, named after the centre bar built into the tread, is a compliment to successful tyres such as the Dirt Webs and Space Bars. The “web” style tyre was built to compete on smooth high-grip indoor and outdoor surfaces which require a finely detailed connected bar pattern. The centre section of the tire is a home run utilising a diamond “home plate” footprint to provide massive surface area for better footprint and increased longevity. The web of extensions are unique and have a directional touch giving the racer the ultimate tune-ability. Jason Ruona explains, “The Ellipse front tire has a slightly wider carcass, it allows the driver to attack high-speed sections with more comfort and smooths the steering of a 2WD buggy. The “home plate” and connected web of tread has a large footprint and 1000’s of edges to produce steering connection. Connected tread wears together which is useful racing indoors where a racer requires surface area to produce steering.” The Ellipse tyres are available in a huge selection of compounds such as blue, green, aqua, gold and the ROAR National Champion, silver compound. Included in each package, the Dirt-Tech closed cell inserts known for their durable nature and grey colour complete the race tuned package.
