Motiv / Exhilarating adventure tire

Motiv
Motiv

The design motiv is a futuristic off-road tire that maximizes the grip through movements of individual block units, veering away from the concept of inflation and tread block of the existing tire. The tilting concept of the shaft was applied for free movement from left to right when the tire comes in contact with the bumpy ground. Each block unit, which has its own shaft, can independently react to the shape of the ground, allowing free driving in all types of ground. Moreover, it does not need inflation -- no need to worry about a flat tire. Each block can be separately replaced; thus extending the life of this environment-friendly tire.
