STI added Kevlar® belts to Roctane XD one year ago, and the tire quickly became a favorite of rock crawlers and riders looking for the ultimate in durability. Now that same traction and toughness is available in a 26-inch tire.
Kevlar®, a lightweight synthetic fiber with five times the tensile strength of steel, has a bulletproof reputation that matches its application.With dual Kevlar® belts engineered in a cross-weave pattern running shoulder to shoulder on the new Roctane XD-K tires, STI Tire & Wheel triples the puncture resistance of this nearly impenetrable tire. The new Roctane XD-K also features a stiffened tread/sidewall compound that enhances the strength of the Kevlar®, making this tire’s 8-ply-rated radial carcass even more robust. The new construction gives the XD-K the pinnacle of Roctane “Xtreme Duty” performance.
This Roctane keeps the family’s unique, non-directional tread design and wide profile footprint that delivers smooth, quiet operation and precise control. Like other Roctane XDs, the XD-K uses a specially formulated tread compound that helps extend its life and lets it grip the slickest rocks like a dedicated wall-crawler. The Roctane XD-K tires are available in four sizes at authorized STI retailers, distributed exclusively in the U.S. by MTA Distributing and throughout Canada by Motovan.
