TECHNOLOGY

Carbide Aluminum Studs
Balancing high density with weight, our carbide-aluminum studs are assembled from two components: an aluminum base with a carbide tip pressed into it. Being the next dense material to diamonds, carbide resists wear from constant contact with asphalt. The aluminum bases that hold the carbide tip are half the weight of stainless steel, significantly reducing the constant rolling weight of the tire. The combination of super durable carbide and super lightweight aluminum provide the optimum balance of durability and performance.
Steel Carbide Studs
Using the same two-piece construction method as the Concave Aluminum Carbide product, the steel-carbide stud features a dome-shaped carbide tip with a steel base, making it a more economical stud for 45North’s 27tpi tire collection, while still providing excellent performance and longevity.
Siping
Tiny grooves on large tread lugs create more edges for grip. These grooves also give the tire more flexibility to move over surface undulations, providing enhanced acceleration, braking and cornering traction while also creating a more comfortable ride quality. Siping has been used in the automobile industry for years to augment the performance of tires in winter driving conditions.
