MXA PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT: ALL-NEW STI TECH 2 PRO D TIRES

STI has announced the all-new Tech 2 PRO D tires. These high-performance off-road tires were tested and developed in the grueling conditions of Baja with the help of Team SLR Honda racers. Designed with the same race-winning mindset behind the Tech 2 PRO motocross tires, the off-road focused PRO D models feature a stronger and stiffer carcass, wider tread blocks, and tighter tread-block spacing. The result is exceptional off-road handling, improved performance on hardpack terrain and better high-speed stability.  The tire size offerings in the Tech 2 PRO D line fit the needs of today’s performance-minded off-road, desert racing and dual-sport enthusiasts. Thousands of miles of off-road and desert testing proved the DOT-marked Tech 2 PRO D tires are durable high-performance products designed for tough conditions. Retail prices range from $70 to $104.
