At SEMA 2019 show, which took place November 5–8 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Atturo Tire officially introduced the Trail Blade MTS, an extension of Atturo’s popular Trail Blade M/T tire, and the first model in the tire maker’s Trail Blade Sport line.
Unlike the basic model, Atturo Trail Blade MTS (MT Sport) has a number of additional sizes and features a tread block that’s modeled after the OTR-5 karambit knife designed by Quartermaster Knives, with whom the Atturo designers are continuing to collaborate. The new tire is designed for full-size 4×4 vehicles.
According to the manufacturer’s statement, the self-cleaning ability of the MTS is enhanced with the built-in stone ejectors. The shoulder blocks feature a pattern embossed into the side of the tread, which helps distort sound waves, and the sidewall tread blades alternate into full integration with the shoulder tread blocks, creating a serrated edge that greatly improves traction in loose surfaces.
The MTS features a heavy-duty 12 ply-rated construction, and the MTS size range is focused on aftermarket applications. The rim diameters will range from 15- to 24-inches. Currently, the Trail Blade MTS is available in limited sizing for immediate orders, with more sizes to be released during 2020.
