Discipline: Professional Concept

Various locations around the globe are undergoing desertification due to global warming. Boostrac is a future-oriented tire specifically designed for such environments. Under normal conditions, it is optimized for dry performance, and under desert conditions, the bending of the tread surface forms spaces between blocks in all directions, producing the highest traction. This also raises the vehicle's height allowing it to drive in sand without getting stuck. The module-base assembly structure not only reduces production costs but also consumer maintenance costs and ultimately reduces waste, which contributes to preserving the environment.
