CORONA, Calif. (November 13, 2014) – The STI Outback is known as the leading all-conditions tire for UTVs and ATVs. Now STI introduces four wider Outback sizes: 26/10-12, 26/12-12, 27/10-12 and 27/12-12. The wider tire profile greatly increases flotation and traction in loose conditions while retaining a smooth ride on hard-pack surfaces. These new Outback XT tires feature unique lugs that are stepped on the outside and dimpled in the middle. The design provides aggressive grip and efficient clean-out capability, while maintaining ride comfort. Plus, each Outback uses a 6-ply bias carcass and a beefy rim guard for durability without adding weight.
Launched in 2013, the Outback tire line was created to deliver the comfort and durability needed for hard-pack trails with the bite and control required when riding in mud and loose terrain. The center “V” tread pattern gives that smooth ride on hard surfaces. The deep, dimpled lug design adds the aggressive traction component, and the lugs wrap around the shoulder to add side bite.
The new Outback XT uses 1 1/8-in. deep lugs; the lugs on the original Outback AT tires measure 3/4-in. deep. With the new wider sizing expanding the Outback lineup, STI continues to deliver a broad range of tire and wheel options to satisfy the needs of ATV and UTV owners across the United States.
STI Tire & Wheel designs and manufactures tires, wheels and tubes for owners of off-road motorcycles, UTVs and ATVs. Launched in 2010, STI is lead by powersports industry veterans with a deep understanding of the needs of off-road enthusiasts. STI Tire & Wheel products are available at motorcycle and ATV retailers nationwide, online and at select powersports events.
