Anlas WINTER GRIP PLUS
The Anlas Winter Grip Plus is a tire designed for big Enduro and for snow. So, It is approved M+S and shows a wavy tread plate structure with carvings. They restrain the snow crystals, exploiting them to have a grip on the snowpack. Just like the winter tires for cars. Furthermore, along the tread are present diagonal grooves, which improve the water drainage in the case of wet.
Unlike the earlier model, the Anlas CapraX is not a real “snow tire”. But it is a knobbly tire homologated M+S. It is ready for the off-road and it is able to deal paved stretches (60% off, 40% road). Anlas declares that more than 10.000 km are served in the development of this tire using best available technology materials.
On asphalt, the Anlas CapraX is silent. The special design of the friction pads keeps the noise level very low. So, lower than that of similar tires from other manufacturers. Handlebar vibrations are minimal and only at speeds well in excess of those imposed by our motorway limits starts some slight sway of the front. The grip is good and although we are talking about a friction pad rubber quite marked. Four wheel drive CapraX you are defending very well.
