When thinking of Off-Highway tires, the first thing that actually comes into our minds are specialised vehicles of big dimensions such as tractors or dumpers. Stephen Fontenot, a guy from Texas who loves off-road ATV sport, shows us how Off-Highwaytires not only suit for heavy operations, but that they can also become a source of fun and new adventures. With his ATVs in a futuristic design equipped with BKT tires, Stephen reveals us the secrets of off-road vehicles.
Stephen approached BKT tires one year ago, whilst his passion for off-road sports and vehicles started in childhood: “It all began when I was a child. My uncle always took me to off-road races, and I have really gone mad for them, since I was a little boy.”Nonetheless, just while Stephen was growing up also this sport gained popularity: “My passion and enthusiasm have flourished over the time just as concurrently this sport has been able to captivate an increasing number of fans. Nowadays, there is a growing number of products available on the market – just like the BKT tires – and they are becoming always more specific and more technological. This shows how this sport is booming,”Stephen says.
When asked why he prefers BKT tires to those of a different manufacturer, Stephen comes up with several reasons: “The main advantage of my BKT tires is their versatility: They are soft on the hardest surfaces. Yet, their compound mix is quite soft allowing a comfortable ride, on the other hand it is hard enough to offer best grip on an even terrain. These tires provide great traction on any kind of surface. They are extraordinarily resistant against wear, have a nice design with deep grooves enabling easy cleaning even from sticky mud. I would recommend them for all of these reasons. If you are looking for a really versatile tire, then you must go for BKT.”
In particular, Stephen Fontenot uses AT 171, a tire providing excellent traction on wet and muddy, or sandy terrains. Its outstanding resistance and robustness make it the ideal product for all ATV challenges.
Stephen’s passion for off-road sports has not remained unnoticed. On his Instagram profile @canamwhisperer, Fontenot tells his followers about his challenges. From Stephen, the extreme off-roadfan community can actually expect extreme trials under toughest conditions on vehicles that are blocked in the mud.
