One of the best moves a racer can make is increasing tire pin size for deep or long shag turf conditions. The Drop Step tire is an ole school, step pin type tire but with large hexagon shaped base features doubled up and offset to create more edges and surfaces to bite and grip in deep conditions. Long pins extend off the hex designs and reach into the depths of racing surfaces. The drafted pin angle has a stout base and increases flexibility near the peak for delicate bite. Designed in the industry standard 2.2” bead mounting size, the Drop Step is very versatile and has shown to work in many artificial conditions.
The semi-circle protrusions, unique to the Lockness, Nessi, and now, Drop Step are included in the sidewall area of the tire to help hold turns at high-speeds. A unique feature on the Drop Step is the scalloped tire bead which removes a lot of weight from a normally beefy area. The tips of the bead touch off on the inner beads on the wheel which lead to a great alignment but now with reduced rotating weight. The JConcepts tires include open cell, medium inserts for plush control. The 2.2” bead mounting diameter fits to popular wheels like the #3348 Mono wheels available in bright white and florescent yellow.
