JConcepts Ellipse Short Course Tires are named after the center bar built into the tread. 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 surface area for better footprint and increased longevity. The web of extensions are unique and have a directional touch giving the racer the ultimate tune-ability.
Jason Ruona explains, “The Ellipse front tire has a slightly rounder carcass, it allows the driver to attack high-speed sections with more comfort and smooths the steering of an SCT truck. The “home plate” and connected web of tread has a large footprint and 1000’s of edges to produce a traction connection. Connected tread wears together which is useful when racing indoors where a racer requires surface area to produce grip.”
The Ellipse tires are available in a selection of compounds such as green, aqua and the ROAR National Champion, silver compound. As a rule of thumb, green compound is conditioned to perform outdoors while aqua and silver remain the favorites indoors. Included in each package, the Dirt-Tech closed cell inserts known for their durable nature and gray color complete the race tuned package.
