The new Black Rock M/S from Carlstar Group LLC is the first Carlisle-branded mud and snow tire designed for the all-terrain vehicle (ATV) and utility terrain vehicle (UTV) market.
The company says the Black Rock M /S is equipped with a unique tread, designed for increased traction control in loose and muddy terrain.
“We are excited to be able to provide a mud tire geared specifically for our UTV riders,” says Laren Harmon, executive vice president of sales at Carlstar Group. “With a rounded shoulder profile and overlapping lugs, the Black Rock M/S maintains an incredibly smooth and comfortable ride on hard -packed terrain.”
The Black Rock M/S incorporates “mud spikes” tattooed in the void area of the tire design. The company says the mud spikes break the suction often associated with deep, soupy mud. The mud spikes work in conjunction with the V-shaped dimples of the uniquely designed lugs to evacuate mud from the tire. These features allow the massive 1.2 inch tread depth to provide the bite needed to maintain forward motion in extremely muddy conditions, according to the company.
A proprietary tread formulation balances maximum wear properties with excellent chip and tear resistance.
Available to dealers in April 2017, MSRP ranges from $102 to $140 with sizes available in 25x8-12 to 28x11-14.
