Elements Trekker Rally Cross tyre

Elements Trekker Rally Cross tyre

New from Elements for 2008 is the Elements Trekker Rally Cross tyre, developed by top UK and EU racers with the goal of creating massive forwards traction, awesome side bite and more acceleration. To complete these objectives the tread design has been optimized with the triangular central section being able to cut into the surface for unparalleled forwards traction, while the outer edge of the tyre has also been worked on to give excellent cornering characteristics by stiffening up the side wall under load with the bars. The final stage was to reduce the overall diameter of the tyre to reduce weight and gain more acceleration. The compound was then optimized for all conditions which resulted in the all round S-Medium compound. This tyre proved to work on every surface from astro to clay to grass in every condition possible. Not happy with just an awesome all round tyre the developing racers wanted something a little softer for that little edge when they need it, we found the R-Soft compound! This compound gives excellent traction in all conditions. The Elements Trekker tyres come packaged in pairs with the proven Edit Black Soft Inserts.
