Click on images to enlarge
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 dirt.
These new Tech 2 Pro tires provide durability that will be appreciated by top racers at a price that trail riders will admire. STI makes the Tech 2 Pro in two 18-inch sizes (110 and 1209 widths), and three 19-inch sizes (100, 110 and 120 widths). The front ire is a 80/100-21.Suggested retail pricing ranges from $57.00 to $84.00 depending on sizes.. STI Tech 2 Pro tires are distributed to powersports retailers through MTA Distributing and Motovan. For more info on the STI Tech 2 Pro tires click here.
