Volcon and BF Goodrich tires are collaborating on an electric UTV that will race in the upcoming Mint 400. As part of the collaboration, Volcon has been working with BFGoodrich tries to integrate the ActivAir suspension technology.
ActivAIr makes real time adjustments to the tires to enhance performance. Volcon aims to increase the battery range of its products. Eventually the system will be integrated into the Stag UTV, soon to be available for sale to the public.
“We’re thrilled to be taking on this exciting new challenge,” said Jordan Davis, CEO of Volcon ePowersports. “Off-road racing is a demanding sport that requires not only speed and agility, but also toughness and durability. We believe that our electric vehicles are more than up to the task, and we can’t wait to prove it on track. It also serves as the perfect test bench for our vehicles and partner technologies to be pushed in the most challenging environments, so we know we’ve done due diligence before customers take delivery.”
