JConcepts unveils an all new SCT all-terrain tire from their design department. The JConcepts Scorpios Short Course Tires, scale looking tread and tough realistic profile, jump out as the most obviously features. Starting by analyzing the tread, the design team focused on a closely knit tread arranging them in a pattern closely resembling a full scale tire. The padded arrangement of tread makes the tire ideal for transitioning from the hard road to dirt and then into rocky and uneven terrain. Once power is applied to the vehicle, the tread spacing opens up which allows for some deep digging making it a great working tire in dirt and muddy conditions.
Each Scorpios tread block has finely cut edges with a healthy radius where the block meets the tire body. Each block features slight cuts on top to open up and create some sling space while the outer most lug extends down the sidewall to stiffen the upper carcass and increase the pinch grip. The flexibility of the compound combined with the close arrangement gives the tire a grippy feel but still maintains that all important look.
The Scorpios height provides plenty of ground clearance for an abundance of terrain and internal grid ribbing help maintain its upright structure during hard loads and on power bursts. The short course tires include a closed cell insert capable of standing up the super soft compound but flexible enough for sharp terrain.
