Need More Grip Under Extreme Conditions ?

If you go off road regularly, or even ride your motorcycle in the snow, then you know what I mean. Often you'd just like to have more grip and traction, specially in sand or mud. It's not easy, unless you're a tank! So here's the solution.

Attrax

Attrax
Canadian company Attrax have developed a sort of half track for the rear wheel of your motorcycle.

They replace the rear tire of your motorcycle with a "mega sprocket". The swing arm is then extended with a set of 3 wheels. The sprocket is 5.5 inch wide, and 95 inches long, and made out of rubber and plastic.

No drilling is required, since they have kits for most popular motorcycles. You should be able to take off the kit and replace it with your normal tire.




Attrax
The new "rear tire" gives you so much grip you can easily ride through deep mud, or climb a steep and sandy hill. Imagine using this on the Dakar race, riding the dunes faster than the buggies. Check out the action photos on their website, in deep mud, sand and snow.

The addition adds some 20 pounds to your bike, a small penalty to pay for the added grip.

KTM
have shown interest in this technology and are in discussion with Attrax, so maybe you'll even see it as an option for their motorcycles.

Price of the kit retails at about US$ 1700. They are looking for dealers worldwide, so if you're interested, drop them a line.
