Carpet offroad racing at one time was primarily seen in the UK and across Europe, however, over the past several years an influx of carpet offroad racing facilities have opened up all around the globe (including the United States). With that being said, more and more tire manufacturer’s are pushing new carpet offroad tire designs, compounds, and availability. Schumacher has announced today two new carpet offroad racing tires; 4wd Front Stagger and Mini Pin 2 Rear tire.
Schumacher says, “Shown for the first time last week on our booth at the world famous Nürnberg Toy Fair these tyres were getting great attention!
Firstly the new 4WD wide front stagger, this tyre has been developed for high grip astro and carpet surfaces. Aimed at providing more grip whilst keeping great stability associated with the staggered rib tyre. 2.2 inch diameter, suitable for 4WD and 2WD medium wheels. It is available in the legendary Schumacher yellow compound for dry conditions and also the softer Silver for damp and wet conditions. The yellow is also available pre-glued on the 4WD Flexlite 12mm hex wheel.
Secondly the new Mini Pin 2 rear tyre, this is a tyre for high grip astro and carpet racing. The new tyre has a thinner wall thickness which is aimed at providing more traction and improved bump handling. The pins have been designed to have more of a radius edge as opposed to the square edge on the previous and hugely popular Mini Pin tyre. This allows the tyre to work perfectly straight from the packet, without the need for bedding in. The Mini Pin 2 is available in Yellow, Silver and hard wearing Blue compound, the Yellow is available pre-glued on the Flexlite 12mm hex wheel.”
