I must admit this tyre caught my attention, and not because it was new or yet another buggy tyre.
It caught my attention because it was designed not to grip the best, look the coolest or work in one specific set of conditions, but because it was designed to last longer than any other tyre that proline has produced before. Available in a range of compounds, as well as pre mounted, this is what Proline have to say about them:
Pro-Line is putting the competition on the Run with the all-new Fugitive race tire! The Fugitive was developed to be the longest lasting race tire ever produced while still being quick and agile. In the past, the prevailing knowledge for creating a new tire that lasted throughout the long A-Mains in extreme wear conditions was to design a big and tall tire tread that was spaced out. While this was effective for the day, the tall and stiff tread numbed out the handling and didn’t have the speed of the smaller pin race tires.
Pro-Line’s all-new Fugitive tires set the standard for wear and performance with a whole new design philosophy – small, tightly packed pins that can handle the abuse of being run on concrete. When combined with Pro-Line’s incredible X-Compounds, the Fugitive easily has the best performance to cost ratio of any Pro-Line tire making it perfect for many European style tracks.
Be the first one outrunning the competition with the Fugitive!
