Introducing the AKA Diamante 1/8 Buggy race tire! AKA's next generation tire has been engineered for hard-packed, dusty, blown-out track conditions.
Diamante development started by looking at the key factors to designing a winning tire for today's racetracks: bump handling, longevity, and grip. To combat the bumps and ruts, AKA used their latest carcass design found on the race-winning Component 2AB; this carcass design has been optimized for bumpy track conditions. Additionally, micro-pins at the outer edges reduce edginess in the bumps. The Diamante is AKA's most dense tread pattern tire to date ensuring maximum runtime for bashers and racers alike. Two key design factors contribute to overall grip. The rectangular lugs have been positioned with the short side facing the direction of the tire's rotation. Thus, giving the lugs maximum support under load for increased forward bite. A diamond like pattern between the lugs give the Diamante unmatched grip in slightly dusty conditions which usually occurs towards the end of a long main event. Competitors can expect the AKA Diamante tire to be the next "go-to" tire in their arsenal.
The Diamante is currently available in AKA's three popular winter rubber compounds (Ultra Soft & Super Soft for watered tracks, Super Soft Long Wear for more abrasive dry tracks) and includes our latest generation closed cell foam insert.
