Suffolk, UK − Maxxis International has “enhanced its high performance” tire portfolio with the launch of the Victra Sport VS01.
The company said it received “unprecedented” demands from people driving high performance vehicles, and so has developed its latest addition in order to meet these requests and ensure that it remains at the “forefront” of the tire industry.
Grip has been improved due to the vertical ribs embedded in the centre of the tread, which are designed to enhance strength and improve traction, whilst also delivering “outstanding” wet and dry handling in all weather conditions. “Excellent” high speed sport performance and driving stability provides drivers with control and manoeuvrability. Strengthened shoulder blocks and streamlined transverse grooves ensure better grip and precision when steering and are designed to reduce the deformation of the blocks during sharp turns, enhance wet handling and minimise the chances of hydroplaning.
The entire range of VS01 comes with the new summer asymmetric pattern, an “attractive” appearance, and rim protector design. High strength steel belts and high rigidity bead filler guarantee “excellent” sport performance with unequal pitch ranking and finite element analysis controls noise emissions effectively giving drivers a quieter ride.
The launch of the VS01 is one of Maxxis’ most significant product launches in years, as Derek McMartin confirms: “Our research and development teams work around the clock to ensure that we continue to provide our customers with the very latest in technological innovation.
“Not only do we have our own test track dedicated to providing data that is used to develop our tires, we have a team of professional engineers that test our tires with national and world-class champions to ensure that they are confident we are producing the best product we can for our customers.”
