Nitto Tire USA launches its first ever powersports tyre

Nitto Tire USA introduced its first-ever tyre for side-by-side vehicles, the Nitto Trail Grappler SXS.

Sharing technology and design details with the popular Nitto Trail Grappler light truck tyres, the Trail Grappler SXS now brings Nitto performance and reliability to the powersports market. The Trail Grappler SXS is first launching in the popular 30×9.5R15 and 32×9.5R15 size in June 2019.

 

FEATURES AND BENEFITS

Tread Block Arrangement

 #Using 3D computer simulation, Nitto’s engineers were able to adopt the iconic Trail Grappler M/T pattern specifically for a Side-by-Side use.

Uniform Construction

# Nitto’s proprietary, automated manufacturing system produces extraordinarily uniform tires. This creates an easy to balance tire and a smooth ride.

 Durability

#Developed for the King of the Hammers UTV class race, and tested by the Hammers champions, the Trail Grappler SxS carries on the reputation for durability just like its 40” big brother.

 Mud Evacuation

#The balanced void ratio efficiently removes mud and dirt from the tread to provide continuous off-road traction.

 

The Nitto Trail Grappler SXS utilises proprietary Nitto technologies from the Trail Grappler light truck tyres. Some of these innovations include reinforced shoulder groove for greater off-road handling performance without sacrificing tread block stiffness and computer-designed tread blocks for optimised mud and dirt evacuation from the tread.

“Nitto Tire is excited to enter the booming powersports market with the Trail Grappler SXS,” said Angelo Naval, Nitto Tire USA’s Senior Director of Product Planning and Business Development. “We’ve drawn on our years of experience in race-winning and proven off-road tyre construction to bring signature Nitto performance to an entirely new market segment.”

The Trail Grappler SXS was first teased at the 2019 SEMA Show and then put through its paces at the 2019 Can-Am UTV King of the Hammers Presented by HCR race where it took three of the top ten finishes. Team Nitto drivers proved the new tyres’s performance and off-road reliability in the harshest possible conditions through both high speed desert running and technical rock crawling, said the company.
