Noss impressed with ITP's new QuadCross XC tires
Justin Noss gave ITP’s new QuadCross XC tires another important victory by capturing the 2010 Adelanto Grand Prix, an hour-long, rough, demanding test of endurance.
Noss put his Golden West Cycles-backed Yamaha YFZ450R into the lead of the Pro Quad class shortly after the dead-engine start and led for the entire four laps on a cool, windy mid-February day in the high desert northeast of Los Angeles.
“I felt these tires worked great for the high-speed, choppy track,” says Noss. ”I’m pleased to say everything worked perfect.”
This was the 30th anniversary for the event, drawing over 1,800 entries. Unfortunately, the promoting club Desert Vipers have said that 2010 will be the final year for the legendary race.
The QuadCross XC incorporates a 6-ply carcass for higher puncture resistance and exceptional overall durability. This advanced carcass design, according to ITP, has been proven to stiffen the sidewall during side loads without compromising ride quality. Along with reducing the bounce that’s common on most cross country knobbies, this design is said to benefit acceleration, braking, cornering and overall balance as well, reducing fatigue and lap times. An aggressive, dimpled tread pattern using a high-tech, long-wearing tread compound further enhances traction, feel and trail handling characteristics. Sizing is 20×11-9 for the rear and 22×7-10 in front.
