JConcepts jumped out with a new aggressive tread pattern for the 1.9” crawling enthusiast. The Hold was designed from the ground-up as a carved and chiseled design to handle a variety of scale off-road terrain. The large horizontal traction bars put a “Hold” on ranging features from dirt, asphalt, grass, mud, rock and clay. At the tip of the tread, the downward progression starts and reveals another flat bar of gripping pattern to provide offset traction controlling attributes. During the bar transitions, an angular segment stabilises and gives edginess to terrain at another direction to help the lift and cut through even more environments. The 4.75” size remains a standard size in the successful fleet of tires which have size, detail, and still look girth appropriate for 1/10th scale off-road crawling machines. The sidewall lugging on The Hold is a thing of beauty starting with peaks set at the outer most constraints of the design. An alternating pattern of finely detailed tread steps in and out allowing a multitude of edging to stand out from the design.
Perhaps the greatest detail of all, the mimicked hand cutting details completely cover The Hold. The horizontal traction bars are back cut and steps down to the carcass and wrap around the sidewall in a forward progressing pattern. On top of the carcass itself, more surface removal is shown to bring out intensity. Beautiful lettering is bossed along the bead area placing name, sizing and authentic logos in plain view but rested underneath the heavily modified tread. The Hold comes standard in the grippy green compound and includes firm open cell inserts for plenty of inner carcass support.
