Press Release from JConcepts:
The Ellipse, named after the center bar built into the tread, is a compliment to successful tires such as the Dirt Webs and Bar Codes. The “Web” style tire was built to compete on smooth high-grip indoor and outdoor surfaces which require a finely detailed connected bar pattern. The center section of the tire is a home run utilizing a diamond “home plate” footprint to provide massive forward bite and increased longevity. The web of extensions are unique and have a directional touch giving the racer the ultimate tune-ability.
The Dirt Web tire was originally released during the 2013 racing season and debuted in spectacular fashion with a win at the CRCRC Midwest Championships. Since that time, the Dirt Webs have been an industry leader for indoor performance and often chosen as a control tire for performance, reliability and consistency.
Jason Ruona explains, “The Ellipse has a compact carcass, it allows the driver to attack high-speed sections with more comfort. The “home plate” and connected web of tread has more stability high-speed and holds the tire together for today’s high-powered vehicles. Connected tread wears significantly better which is useful racing indoors where a racer can break-in and race with the same pair all weekend.”
The Ellipse has already shown success in the hands of Ryan Maifield taking TQ and 1st place in the 1/8th buggy class at the 2018 ROAR 1/8th E-Nationals. The compound of choice for most indoor events, the exclusive gold compound, has shown to produce consistent results for racers week after week. Included in each package, the Dirt-Tech closed cell inserts known for their durable nature and gray color complete the race tuned package.
