Knob resistant to tear and wear
The compound formulation of the KAROO™ Extreme combines both natural rubber for mechanical resistance and synthetic rubber for wear and knob tearing resistance.
The high percentage of carbon black increases resistance to every kind of stress, even at high temperature, typical of the race in the desert and makes the knobs resistant to ‘tearing’ and premature wear.
When used on hard terrains the compound prevents the tire from overheating, thus reducing the risk to blow-up and blistering during the race.
Thanks to a better overall flexibility the structure provides excellent puncture resistance also with low pressures.
