The tightly-spaced, straight-stacked centre knobs provide low surface resistance without reducing traction in heavy braking or climbing situations. Angled sipes soften the side knobs for predictable traction, without allowing the tire to "squirm" or roll under heavy cornering. Finally, directional sipes benefit braking and cornering, without sacrificing durability.
E13 LG1 tires carry over the same tread pattern as the TRS tyres and also use tapered Apex inserts, which dramatically improve grip under cornering and braking, decrease rolling resistance, and dramatically increase the tyre’s puncture resistance.
RACE compounds feature soft, tacky cornering knobs and with a longer-wearing centre-tread compound. On Race tires, there is an added layer of woven aramid reinforcement that not only maximizes air retention but better protects against sidewall cuts and punctures.
