New Tomahawk T3 Tyre

(Clacton, U.K./Tyres & Accessories) Tomahawk, the U.K. manufacturer of retread radial motorcycle tyres, has launched a new pattern tyre for the 2006 season.

The company’s new T3 tyre is said to be sport biased “with a large contact patch that puts more rubber on the road.” The tyre offers Z-rated performance in a choice of three compounds; Road, for every day use and good rates of wear; Sport, for spirited riding on road or track; and Sprint, for track day use.

Retreading motorcycle tyres is a highly specialised technique and Tomahawk claims to have unrivalled experience of taking an existing tyre carcass and re-vulcanising new “virgin” rubber back on. Tomahawk understands that riders rarely replace front and rear tyres simultaneously and so they clearly identify the make and model of the original carcass on all of their products so that customers may mix and match.

Production is centred in a 37,000-squar- foot factory at Rhayader in Mid Wales, which is accredited to ISO9001:2000. Every tyre can be traced from when it entered the premises as a carcass to the time it left as a new re-treaded tyre.

In May 2003, Dave Coates established a new world record for ‘donuts’ on a pair of Tomahawk tyres.
