Ulti 01A & G5 traction compounds

Coming from Ulti are two traction compounds for rubber and foam tyres. First up is 01A, a mild tyre sauce that only moderately softens the tyre while keeping the front-to-rear balance and being gently on the rubber, preventing excessive tyre wear. The second new tyre compound is G5 that, from what is understood, is about two to four times as strong as 01A. Both oil-based traction compounds are made in Japan and they come in metal cans for convenient and secure transportation and storage.
