Maxxis International is once again proving its position at the cutting edge of tyre design innovation, as it announces the launch of its new RazR 4x4 tyre range. Officially unveiled at 2015’s Sema Show in Las Vegas and taking pride of place at last month’s Autosport International at The Birmingham NEC, the RazR range, developed for short course racing, is already turning heads for all the right reasons.
The RazR tyre range consists of two designs, the RazR MT and the RazR Plus. The MT (mud terrain) has been designed to deliver better balance between on-road refinement and off road performance and boasts a new off-road compound for maximum tear resistance and increased tread life. It also features an armoured sidewall to protect against punctures. The Plus on the other hand, designed for ATVs and quads, features an aggressive tread pattern for extra traction and predictable sliding, and angled shoulder knobs for improved steering and braking. Both tyres are incredibly light, making them the perfect choice for short course racing.
Expected to be available to purchase via Stapleton’s in early summer 2016, the RazR 4x4 range is expected to become a Maxxis bestseller, as managing director of Maxxis, Derek McMartin, confirms: “Our 4x4 offering is already strong, with our off road Trepador Tyre becoming somewhat of a celebrity in its own right with appearances in three films last year, including the latest James Bond thriller, Spectre; The Man From U.N.C.L.E; and Mad Max, Fury Road.
“Adding to our already varied range of specialist 4x4 tyres with the launch of the short course racing RazR range just goes to demonstrate our continued commitment to quality and innovation. Put simply: the RazR tyre will offer unrivalled performance, comfort and endurance for 4x4 racing competitors and enthusiasts alike.”
