JConcepts revealed new tires for the carpet and astroturf racing world: Nessi and Twin Pins. The Nessi tire shares styling cues from its successful brother, the Lockness. Racing on artificial surfaces require a lot of stability and forward-bite and the design team created a tire that brings a new 3D blended pin-size, pin-separation and a light-weight and incredibly low-profile carcass.
Designed in the industry standard 2.2” bead mounting size, the Nessi is very versatile and has shown to work in many natural and artificial conditions. The semi-circle protrusions, unique to the Lockness and now the Nessi are included in the center section of the tire and on the sidewall area. These details are important and the low semi-circles improves side-bite but also minimize grip-rolling instances associated with normal pins.
The pink compound marked with 2 pink dots on the tire represents a new compound for JConcepts, a medium soft material with good wear characteristics. The rear tires include open cell inserts making them a complete set ready to mount, straight out of the package.
The Twin Pins are a new ground-breaking design which have not only, turned some heads, but have the competition, scratching their heads. The Twin Pins feature a dual spike which is connected together to form a mini-mountain like silhouette. The Twins are rotated throughout the design to form a solid, pin rich environment so surface area is maximized. The tire carcass itself has been refined, slammed to low-profile, high-speed standards and slimmed out to reduce weight in all possible areas.
The center section of the tire is connected at the base by an ultra-low, winding “river walk” which strengthens pins near the base. The “river walk” can also extend the longevity of the tire once the pins are gone, the “walk” retains some height for emergency long distance main events. The outside of a tire can make or break side-bite, too much pin and the tire can be somewhat tippy, while not enough yields a squirrely vehicle. The very outside of the Twin Pins have legs which extend out to micro pins giving the racer all-important support turning high-speed corners.
