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.

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 -35 F (-37 C).
