1. Atturo’s New Hybrid Tire
On this product review of the week, we’re here to talk to you about Atturo’s TrailBlade XT, the newest edition to their hybrid tire line up. Hybrid tires have compacted center lugs and less aggressive tread patterns that provide quieter and smoother on-road experience while maintaining a considerable amount of off-road capability, unlike more aggressive treads that are typically associated with pure mud-terrain tires.
2. What Makes The TrailBlade XTs Different?
The TrailBlade XTs are designed with protruding shoulder lugs that allow for more grab on the outer edges of the tire, especially when aired down on tougher terrains such as mud or snow. Shoulder lugs give the Atturo XTs a major off-road performance advantage over standard road tires without the super aggressive overall tread that mud-terrains come with. The integration of these lugs put these tires in a league of their own considering their daily-drivable center tread pattern and the tough shoulder lugs of a pure mud-terrain tire. Whether it be driving to the office during the week or hitting the trails on the weekend, these tires have you covered.
Atturo has also integrated a notable amount of siping into these tires, ensuring that each individual lug has been siped at least once; As opposed to other brands that have tendencies to only sipe every other lug or no lugs at all. The extra siping gives these tires extra grip in rough terrains such as heavy rain, snow, and ice. If you live up north in the snow or down south in the mud, these hybrid tires from Atturo are a great option for all types of on-road and off-road use.
3. Why Atturo
Atturo has been doing an excellent job with their tire development and production. As the brand proceeds to come out with new products they continue to leave a lasting impression of quality on the off-road tire industry. Overall we were genuinely impressed by the TrailBlade XTs and believe that they’ll make a great fit for anyone in the market for a hybrid style off-road tire.
4. Wrap Up
As mentioned above what stood out to us the most on the TrailBlade XTs included:
- Protruding shoulder lugs that allow for more grab on the outer edges of the tire
- Tough yet smooth center-tread pattern that makes for great daily-driving
- Siping of each individual center lug, improving capability while maintaining daily-drivability
We are looking forward to what Atturo brings to the table next.
