The Gato was designed for maximum grip and control in wet and loose conditions. The larger volume version features the same aggressive tread pattern, but with size specific, tall, widely spaced, siped knobs that ensure excellent shedding characteristics and increased traction through a range of elements. Reinforcements at the base of the central ridge reduce rolling resistance while similar reinforcements on the side knobs ensures knob stiffness and penetration when cornering. The new Gato, despite its infancy, is a sure choice for adverse All Mountain applications.
Sticky Soft compound on side knobs and ARAMID RACING 3D on the central ones. That’s the best compromise you can get from both the compounds: cornering grip and braking performances keeping low the rolling resistance. Soft side knobs guarantee a strong bite in turns and excellent grip in all situations whilst the central (harder) compounds with aramidic particels makes for lower rolling resistance reducing wear and tear to acceptable levels. It’s the ideal solution for racing tyres.
