The profiles of the KAROO™ Street are directly derived from those of the TOURANCE™ NEXT, with the precise aim to increase the on-road behaviour.
It features a multi-radius profile with an increased width and overall length of the contour to increase the surface of the footprint area and
KAROO™ Street features a high silica compound with a balanced proportion of carbon-black and resins to achieve a high level of grip on road, both on dry and wet conditions.
A relevant percentage of carbon black increase knobs resistance to ‘tearing’ and premature wear when
The tread design of the KAROO™ Street is delivered from the disruptive layout of KAROO™ 3 and its uniquely shaped knobs with the precise objective to provide great on-road performance, wear regularity and a high level of stability combined with a cross-country appeal.
Extra-large central blocks create a wide and solid contact patch which ensures high speed stability on-road.
When riding off-road, the V-shaped knob layout with its multiple operating edges of blocks ensure acceleration, traction and braking grip; on-road, the multi-pitch knob layout is able to reduce contact vibrations, and it contributes to maximize wear uniformity and deliver effective mileage.
Longitudinal grooves in the middle of the central blocks provide water evacuation and self-cleaning ability form dirt.
Wide transversal grooves contribute to make central blocks to dig the soil, providing off-road traction especially on dirt and hard-packed clay soils.
The variable shape of the block, together with their V-shaped layout ensures multiple operating edges that enhance off-road traction.
Big lateral blocks ensure a large contact patch when leaning, providing cornering grip and stability even at high speed.
KAROO™ Street’s ensure an optimal integration with electronic rider aids such as ABS and traction control.
The combination of the extra-large blocks with their V-shaped layout and the high stiffness of the tyre structure enables a high level of stability, traction and smooth rolling, providing a clean signal and information transmitted to the ABS, Traction Control and other rider electronic aids, not interfered by tread patter vibrations or deformations typically found with other knobbly tyres.
