It offers drivers a tread pattern for the most challenging track conditions while maintaining incredible grip across a wide variety of track surfaces before layout starts compacting and cleaning up and also consistent handling on loose dirt outdoor race tracks. With the centre bars you can expect this tyre to deliver the power to the ground. It provides awesome forward traction, fantastic response as well as quick corner speeds. The H-BLOCK is a specialty tyre that when matched to the appropriate track conditions can provide amazing results. It features the XL insert and the new wider and larger structure that improves the overall performance with more consistent handling in the bumps, effortless jumping and an easy to drive feeling.
