The Ellipse, named after the center bar built into the tread, is a compliment to successful tires such as the Dirt Webs and Bar Codes. The “Web” style tire was built to compete on smooth high-grip indoor and outdoor surfaces which require a finely detailed connected bar pattern. The center section of the tire is a home run utilizing a diamond “home plate” footprint to provide massive forward bite and increased longevity. The web of extensions are unique and have a directional touch giving the racer the ultimate tune-ability. The Dirt Webs have been an industry leader for indoor performance and often chosen as a control tire for performance, reliability and consistency.
Jason Ruona explains, “The Ellipse has a compact carcass, it allows the driver to attack high-speed sections with more comfort. The “home plate” and connected web of tread has more stability high-speed and holds the tire together for today’s high-powered vehicles. Connected tread wears significantly better which is useful racing indoors where a racer can break-in and race with the same pair all weekend.”
The Ellipse has already shown success in the hands of Ryan Maifield taking TQ and 1st place in the 1/8th buggy class at the 2018 and 2019 ROAR 1/8th E-Nationals. The compound of choice for most indoor events, the exclusive gold and silver compound, has shown to produce consistent results for racers week after week. Included in each package, the Dirt-Tech closed cell inserts known for their durable nature and gray color complete the race tuned package.
