According to Maxxis, the VR-1 tire is deployed with a rubber compound that warms as per the operating temperature, very quickly and offers a resolute dry traction on the street as well as on the racing tracks.

The latest tread pattern was designed to maximize tire performance in dry weather, while minimizing obstacles in wet weather. The reinforced casing design of the new tire by Maxxis allows a comfortable manoeuvrability to the driver of the vehicle.
