Tread Pattern of New Kanati Terra Master Provides Two Mounting Options
The new Kanati Terra Master from Greenball Corp.’s GBC Motorsports subsidiary features two mounting options to best suit a vehicle’s application.
GBC Motorsports says the Kanati Terra Master is the industry’s first utility terrain vehicle (UTV) tire with an asymmetrical, non-directional tread pattern.
The tread pattern on the Kanati Terra Master is specially designed to offer the benefits of two tires in one. With two distinctive sides to choose from, UTV owners can customize their tire setup to best suit their vehicle application, driving style, and terrain conditions.
One mounting option is recommended for use in soft to intermediate terrain, while the other is best for intermediate to hard terrain.
GBC Motorsports says it made sure to prioritize performance and durability above all else in the development of the Kanati Terra Master. The 10-ply rated radial tire is built to withstand even the roughest conditions, thanks in part to its rugged light weight steel belt design which is built specifically for UTVs. And for UTV owners in areas that allow for usage on city roads, the Terra Master was designed to meet and exceed DOT standards.
“The Kanati Terra Master was many years in the making,” explains Randy Tsai, director of GBC Motorsports. “Our tire development practices have always been centered around thorough research and testing, and we are excited to share our results with UTV racers and enthusiasts alike.”
The bar was raised in 2012 with the launch of the Mongrel, according to Kory Ellis, GBC brand coordinator. “The tire market has tried its best to come up with their version of the Mongrel since then,” says Ellis. “We took consumer feedback on the Mongrel, along with some new innovations, and incorporated it all into the Terra Master. Now with the launch of the Terra Master, the bar has been raised once again to keep up with the demands of today's and tomorrow's performance UTVs.”
The Kanati Terra Master will be offered in ten popular sizes. Initial sizes are expected to arrive this winter, with remaining sizes due in early 2018.
