Troy wanted a “unicorn” of a tyre – a center tread design that carried speed easily but with edge blocks worthy of world-class cornering speed. Using our Rekon, Minon DHF, and High Roller II tread patterns as a starting point, Troy and our engineering team began development on the Dissector during the 2018 World Cup season.
The center knobs are all heavily ramped to minimize drag, but retain sharp, flat edges along their backs to provide strong braking traction. Small sipes give the knobs additional flexion, increasing their surface area during braking and aiding the transition to the edge blocks when cornering. C-shaped edge blocks alternate between being closer and farther away from the center line of the tire. This pattern reduces vagueness when transferring from the center tread to the cornering tread. A distinct channel along either side of the center knobs – along with ample spacing between all lugs – helps to clear debris.
DoubleDown (DD) is the next step in the evolution of the dual-ply tire casing for enduro racing. Two 120 TPI casing layers reinforced with a butyl insert provide the enduro racer with the support and protection of a downhill tire, but in a lighter package.
3C MaxxGrip uses the softest rubbercompounds to offer the ultimate ingrip and slow rebound properties forunparalleled traction in downhill applications.
