Compounds of Tires

Enduro dual EDC

Enduro Dual (EDC)

Unique combination of two compounds – well-proven CRX 2 compound in the base
and at the center of tread pattern and low-rebound compound DEAD 1 for side pattern figures.
Such blend providing high structural strength and enhanced resistance to abrasion in the center
as well as excellent adhesion and traction of side figures is optimal for extreme riding in harsh
and ragged terrain.
Grey line

Grey Line (GL)

Special combination of two compounds – 1 soft adhesive compound (SSC – Grey Line)

on side tire figures and 2 well-proven CRX compound both in tread center and base for side figures.

Combination of these two compounds predetermines the tire for racing purpose
providing low drag for fast riding and excellent grip and control in curves and traverse.

CARBON RACE EXTREME LIGHT (CRX)

Rubber compound on active carbon black basis. Such provides high structural strength, enhanced abrasion resistance, excellent adhesion, grip and low drag characteristics. Density – 1,02 g/ cm3 . Predetermined especially for racing purposes.

DOWNHILL EXTREME ADHESIVE (DEAD)

Special low-reflective compound with high structural strength and admixture of activated silica. With its excellent adhesive features is predestinated for extreme sport usage in demanding and rugged terrain.

OPTIMAL (OC)

Compound with higher resistance against abrasion. Optimal balance of abrasiveness and lifetime determines this compound for the tire of middle user’s level – amateur sport and training

SILICA MEDIUM (SMC)

Special tread compound with admixture of activated silica distinguishing itself by low drag, good adhesive properties, long durability. Intended for sportive usage in universal conditions. This compound shows very stable properties at lower temperatures.

BASIC (BC)

Standard tread black-carbon compound with a  long service life and good riding properties; it is calculated for daily usage in universal conditions.

ROAD (RC)

Special tread compound with higher adhesion developed for tarmac and urban surfaces.

SILICA WINTER COMPOUND (SWC)

Special tread compound developed for riding in winter conditions. By combining several types of rubber, an optimal ratio between long life and good adhesion was found. Active carbon black provides outstanding mechanical properties while Silica ensures ideal hardness at low temperatures. The use of antidegradants provide resistance to specific snow and salt conditions
