GoTreads Features

Self Aligning

Self Aligning

The arched grooves help pull GoTreads into the center of travel. This keeps the traction in the middle of your tire where it provides the greatest aid.

Self Feeding

The first two sections are grooved on one side and smooth on the other. This allows the tire to grip the top while the bottom slides along the ground and under the tire. No more digging to wedge a solid board under your tire!

Self Feeding
Opposing Grip

Opposing Grip

GoTreads feature opposing grooves across the entire surface. Top and bottom. This grabs your tire and the ground in opposite directions creating optimal traction. GoTreads utilize the full surface area on both sides of the traction board for grip.

Arched Strength

This incredibly strong shape is utilized in GoTreads not only for traction but also for re-structuring the ground you are stuck in. Forming a series of arches in the surface of the ground creates a stronger gripping surface.

Arched Strength for traction
Rigid Lattice

Rigid Lattice

The opposing groove pattern of GoTreads creates an incredibly strong lattice structure. This makes them extremely rigid side to side while still allowing flex lengthwise.

Designed to Flex

The patented design of GoTreads combined with our polymer formulation allows them to flex lengthwise and conform to a tire even down to -37 C (-35 F).

Terrain Following

The articulating design of GoTreads allows them to slide into tight spaces other, rigid traction boards won’t fit without extensive digging. This design also prevents your traction device from slamming against the vehicle.

Extreme Duty

The latest iteration of GoTreads were designed for military and fleet use. They are engineered to sustain weights of up to 22,700 kg (although many have pushed the boundaries well past that).

Recommended Sizing by Vehicle

Sizing by vehicle

The weight rating for GoTreads XL and the GoTreads Standard is the same. Sizing is determined by optimal length. Larger vehicles typically means larger diameter tires. Either version of GoTreads is interchangeable across all vehicle sizes as far as weigh rating is concerned.

GoTreads double as leveling blocks.

Great for rooftop tents, camping trailers, or RVs.
