3 CLIMB TEST

Go! Camp & Drive - - Gear | All-Terrain Tyres -

We de­cided to de­flate the tyres to 1.5 bar and to climb the ob­sta­cle – a long, steep in­cline that starts at 30 de­grees and ends at about 40 de­grees – in first gear, low range. The test started at a pres­sure of 1.5 bars, af­ter which the tyre pres­sure was in­creased in­cre­men­tally. If a tyre could climb the slope at 2.2 bar with­out los­ing trac­tion, it was con­sid­ered a 100% pass mark. To our sur­prise, all the tyres got it right. Which only con­firms that most tyres have enough grip for most ap­pli­ca­tions.
