Onza has decades of experience in producing cycling rubber but following its 2008 relaunch more and more riders have switched to the brand thanks to Onza's continued development and high performance tread patterns. 2015 sees the brand push the gravity bar even further with the introduction of their latest rubber, VISCO GRP40 which is the culmination of 4 years of development work and is designed to meet the needs of the world's fastest racers.

Creating a tyre which performs out on the trail sees manufacturers carefully adjust tyre casing, sidewalls thickness, TPI, tread pattern and also rubber compound to construct a tyre which is best suited to the application it is intended for. XC riders demand ultra-light weight, fast rolling tyres while gravity fuelled riders look for a strong sidewall construction and ultimate grip. With this in mind Onza set about creating a specific rubber compound for their gravity application tyres where grip is key to staying on line, beating the clock or sticking that drop. To create their latest rubber compound Onza worked with Switzerland based rubber development company VISCO Labs to manufacture a new rubber compound which would give riders more grip on even the harshest of trails.

Taking 4 years to develop GRP40 is a high performance GRIP 40 (close to 40a) compound the delivers great dampening control for increased traction when in use and offers a slower rebound for a more consistent feel out on the trail. Designed specifically for gravity applications the compound is perfect for everything from downhill racing through to enduro.

Due in stock next month in the IBEX, Citius and Greina tread patterns.
