Franklin, TN – April 10, 2017 – The Carlstar Group announced today the release of the new Carlisle branded Black Rock M/S (Mud and Snow) tire. As the first Carlisle branded mud-specific UTV tire, the Black Rock M/S is equipped with a unique tread, designed for increased traction control in loose and muddy terrain.
“We are excited to be able to provide a mud tire geared specifically for our UTV riders,” stated Laren Harmon, Executive Vice President of Sales at The Carlstar Group. “Our engineering team has been working hard to produce a tire that exceeds enthusiast expectations. With a rounded shoulder profile and overlapping lugs, the Black Rock M/S maintains an incredibly smooth and comfortable ride on hard-packed terrain.”
The Black Rock M/S incorporates “mud spikes” tattooed in the void area of the tire design. The mud spikes break the suction often associated with deep, soupy mud. The mud spikes work in conjunction with the V shaped dimples of the uniquely designed lugs to evacuate mud from the tire. These features allow the massive 1.2 inch tread depth to provide the bite needed to maintain forward motion in extremely muddy conditions. A proprietary tread formulation balances maximum wear properties with excellent chip and tear resistance, providing enthusiasts with compelling value for their investment.
Available in dealers in April 2017, MSRP ranges from $102 to $140 with sizes available in 25×8-12 to 28×11-14. The all-new Black Rock M/S tire will dominate over the biggest mud holes and lead riders on their next outdoor exploration.
