Benefits of Beadlock ATV Wheels

– Clamps the tire’s bead to the wheel rim using mechanical force rather than air pressure
– If a tire goes flat from a puncture or sidewall cut, it will not come off the bead, which usually will allow you to still maintain control of the vehicle and drive slowly to your destination
– Lowering the air pressure will allow the contact patch area to become wider and larger. This will provide you with better traction, floatation, control and a smoother ride
– A beadlock wheel can offer added assurance similar to a spare wheel and tire in the case of a flat tire.
– They will help keep the rim from spinning inside the tire and can stiffen up the sidewall of the tire while riding with low air pressure.

 



Maxxis Big Horn and Interco Reptile ATV Tires

Filed under: atv tires | Tags: , ,

We recently took a spring ride up the canyon to see how far we could get before getting stuck in the snow. Two of our machines are identical Honda Rubicon 500s one running the ever popular Maxxis Bighorn the other a set of Interco Reptile ATV Tires. We’ve run several sets of tires on these machines and so far these two are my favs. The Maxxis Big Horn have a cool look and seem to handle really well in all of  the conditions we’ve put them through. We’ve run a couple of sets of tires with a directional, somewhat paddle type tread designed for mud which I thought would handle better in snowy conditions, but side by side the Maxxis Big Horns seem to out perform in deeper snow. Of course there are many variables that come into play like the tuning of the machine, weight of the rider, experience of the rider, etc., but overall we’ve been pleased with their performance during the winter months.  The only complaint I might have about the big horns is that they slip a bit more on a muddy side slope than some atv tires – that, and everyone has them because they are a great tire. That’s not a bad thing, but if you like to have something a little different than all your buddies, you may want to check out this next tire I want to talk about.

Recently we put a set of 26/9/12 and 26/11/11 Interco Reptiles ATV Tires on one of our machines. We’ve run stock size, 10’s all around and 10’s front 12’s rear and the 9’s and 11’s interco is my favorite set up yet. The slightly larger size gave us the beefier look we wanted for the machine, feels more solid than stock, and of all the sets we’ve run, the interco reptile is the size that seems to handle the best without noticable loss in power due to larger tire size.  We have some rocky terrain where we live so a 6-8 ply atv tire is desirable so they will last on the sharp rocks. The downfall is the 6-8 ply atv tires often ride a bit rougher because of their stiff sidewalls. The Interco reptiles are a radial atv tire (also true of the bighorns) so despite their many plys, they are designed to ride smoother on our rocky roads.  I just like the way the radial tires handle better. Of course the radials cost more so if you use your machine so much or in conditions where the tires only last a season, maybe the radial isn’t right for you. Since we sometimes ride bikes, sometimes atv’s, our tires last a while so a good radial tire is worth the extra money. The Interco Reptiles have a cool aggressive tread pattern and so far have handled great in snow, mud and on the dirt road. I’m anxious to try them out in hot, dry rocky conditions to see how they fare on the rocks. The Reptile is similar to Interco’s Swamp Lite which from what I hear handle great on the rocks as the rubber is a bit softer compound than other atv tires so they tend to grip really well on the rocks. Overall, I’ve been really impressed with this tire and we love the look on our 4wheeler.

Board Meeting

Filed under: Trail Riding

Why hold a board meeting indoors when we can test our latest gear and discuss business at the same time? Some of us on the POR staff hit the hills Friday afternoon with the intent of parking up top to discuss challenges we face, how to address them and marketing plans for the future. Instead we found ourselves in an unexpected snowstorm and boulders falling off the cliffs around us. Of course it was still a good time, but since we were somewhat unprepared for the bitter cold storm we decided to relocate our meeting down to the truck.
