In some conditions in off-road racing, there is no denying that a slick tire is the fastest way around the track. Throughout the racing calendar year, there are several tracks where slicks in silver compound are the go-to tire. Indoor and occasionally outdoor clay surfaces become so tacky or free of dust and debris that a total slick tire is an advantage. For years drivers have sanded, ground and hand sculpted tires in search of that elusive slick carcass for racing, now, JConcepts has the Smoothie 2. Released as a 2.2” bead mounting diameter, the JConcepts Smoothie 2 mount straight to the latest generation wheels for that all important reactive feel. The carefully profiled slightly thickened tire carcass rolls through the turns with efficiency while the maximum smooth surface area grips the specialty surfaces like no other. The Smoothies include Dirt-Tech inserts which have made an immediate presence on the racing scene since their release. The identifiable grey colour with custom sculpted features, are blended into the insert material which provide racers a durable option capable of being used in medium to extremely high-traction conditions.
