As you can hopefully see from these images, the tread is unique, yet reminiscent of some tread designs we've seen in the past. There is a large continuous center rib block with large channels on both sides. This not only gives the tire excellent water displacement qualities at the contact patch, it also makes for great lateral traction. The tread lugs are not as tall as on some all-terrains, and while that may be a detractor for some looking for the biggest bite possible, it benefits the on-road capabilities of this tire. You'll notice that the tread face comes out to almost the very edge of the tire, further enhancing handling.
