New Features of the Mickey Thompson Baja Legend MTZ

The Mickey Thompson Baja Legend MTZ is part rebranding, part performance upgrades. If you're even a little bit familiar with Mickey Thompson then you're already familiar with their MTZ, running with P3 technology. P3 is a bit older, so Mickey Thompson came out with the new Legend MTZ as an upgrade over its predecessor. So what are the biggest differences on this new model?

One of the biggest differences you'll find is the new proprietary silica compound used to make the Baja Legend MTZ. This compound is designed to be a bit quieter on the road, and offer more traction both on and off the road. This tire also improves chip and cut resistance, so you're really getting a more improved tire with the tread compound all the way around with the Baja Legend MTZ.

Upgraded Design and Performance of the Mickey Thompson Baja Legend MTZ

Along with the redesigned silica tread compound, you're also getting a slightly redesigned sidewall tread pattern and sidebiters on the Baja Legend MTZ. Every other sidebiter on here has a four degree angle of pitch to help not only forward momentum and traction, but reverse traction as well. When you're trying to get out of precarious situations on the trails, or the ruts, or anything like that, this tire is much better-equipped than many others in the industry to help you out.

As far as the tread design on the Baja Legend MTZ goes, the shoulder lags are a bit more aggressive than P3 MTZs - you still get a closely-compacted tread design as you would on a hybrid tire to reduce road noise, but you also get open, large, and aggressive shoulder lags that help with mud and snow evacuation. Along with the hybrid-looking tread design on here, each individual tread block does have one sip on or in the tread block. That helps with driving on wet surfaces and helps with traction when you're in the rocks while off the road.
