The Sprinter tire is designed to bridge a gap between the popular Double Dees and other pin tire options from JConcepts. The Sprinter tire has square, angled pins that are stacked vertically to flex and fold evenly across the tire. Typically, a stacked tread will wear less and provide more forward bite while the aligned space helps rotation in the turns and gives a snappy release to square up quickly. Starting with the tread, the JConcepts team focused on durability and performance to bring a rear tire option to market that competes on loose surfaces which are wet or dusty.
With the popularity of dirt-oval racing, vehicles being designed with either mid-motor or laydown transmission options, a new generation pin style, and carcass/outer tread design was needed. The outer sidewall of the tire has angled pins incorporated into the design to help provide the rotation not only needed in dirt off-road, but specifically in dirt-oval racing. The blended tread to is supported by a generous radius which promotes “pin snap” and resists tearing or separation.
Horizontal traction bars connect several pins near the center of the tire, which bonds a critical area for increased push at high-speed. The sidewall area blends nicely into a step-spike feature which helps smooth the transition in bumpy sections and create side-bite. The Sprinters are built on the conventional and popular 2.2″ bead and carcass design making them interchangeable. The interior ribbing features the double-hatch pattern that helps maintain a comfy ride while each set of tires includes the Dirt-Tech closed cell inserts.
