It’s all about durability.
That’s what CST USA’s Rick Emmert, manager of specialty tires, says that most of the company’s UTV consumers are looking for today.
“Whether it’s tread life or puncture resistance or carrying capacity, durability is really what consumers are looking for,” he says. “And that’s one thing that we’re providing, especially with our Behemoth line.”
Emmert says the Behemoth is aimed toward the Utility Side-by-Side consumer who is also value conscious and is looking for a durable tire that performs well but won’t break the bank.
“The Behemoth has been out a couple of years, but we’ve expanded the lineup to include a pretty broad range of sizes,” Emmert says. “It ranges from a general utility ATV with 12-inch wheels to a smaller SxS.”
The Behemoth is available in 25×8, 12×25 and 10×12 combinations and then also in 14- and 15-inch size wheels, which are a little bit more of a standard width for 800cc and larger UTVs. Plus, if somebody wants to go with an aftermarket wheel with a little bit different sizing, CST has a fitment for it.
The Behemoth features an aggressive tread pattern for hard-hitting grip when accelerating and massive shoulder treads for control in ruts. The tire employs a lower rolling resistance for hardpack conditions and gives confidence at high speeds on the trail or in deep mud. Deep, ridged shoulder lugs provide cornering traction, predictable sliding and extra sidewall protection while the 8-ply-rating ensures durability and reliability on any terrain.
