Pro-Line Slide Lock & Electroshot VTR pre-mounted tyres

See: Pro-Line

Pro-Line have introduced pre-mounted Slide Lock tyres for 1/8 buggy and pre-mounted ElectroShot VTR for Truggy. The Slide Lock is a unique tyre design that is made specifically for smooth, low grip tracks. The Slide Lock features a pattern of small, tightly packed hexagon and triangle shaped pins so you can lay down as much rubber as possible. The tread on the new Slide Lock is laid out wider across the tyre carcass for a flatter profile overall compared to other Pro-Line 1/8 tyres. Each hexagon pin has a deep sipe down the middle of the tread for added flex and grip on even the slickest of surfaces. The built-in tread flex means you can run harder compounds for longer wear and still have good traction when you need it. The large and stiff side pins reach far down the sidewall to reduce edginess as much as possible. The Slide Lock tyres is mounted on Velocity V2 wheels.
