Following two years of MX and offroad testing, STI introduces Tech 2 Pro high-performance intermediate MX tires. STI tire engineers and professional racers teamed up to produce pro-level tires that combine holeshot-grabbing traction with race-winning durability. The new Tech 2 Pro tires use a varied-pitch tread in a pattern with fewer center knobs and a concentrated shoulder formation to maximize performance in both loose and packed terrain conditions. Engineers strategically tuned the Pro’s lightweight carcass for the optimum balance of stiffness and flex. This maximizes the contact patch for best traction, and preserves bump-absorption characteristics, keeping the tires planted for performance.
The newly developed compound helps the tire hook up on hard-terrain MX conditions, and lets the tire excel in harsh offroad conditions. The Tech 2 Pro features a four-ply carcass tuned for best balance of stiffness (traction) and flex (bump absorption). It has an intermediate compound that also excels in hard-pack and harsh conditions. The tread pattern has varied itch knobs and a concentrated shoulder tread for max performance in loose …
