GBC Afterburn

2010 Can-Am Renegade 800R Xxc

Test Platform

  • Top Speed runs were done this fall using the off road GBC Afterburn tires on this almost stock Can-Am Renegade 800R Xxc.
  • The only modification is our air-box vents.
  • Our results were recorded on the gps below at 81.2 mph.
  • We will be conducting top speed runs again with the Street Force Tires installed this spring! That I look forward too!

My Impressions:

Pros:

High performance radial ATV tire with aggressive tread design.

Delivers great traction in both mixed and hard packed terrains.

Excellent straight line and high speed cornering while delivering a smooth ride.

Cons:

None yet.

Bottom Line:

This new Afterburn tire from GBC not only looks good out of the box bit it also rides like a radial tire should, smooth and predictable.

So far I am very impressed with the ride qualities of this radial tire. Traction is right up there and it delivers a very smooth ride at the same time.

Extended trail riding will determine where this tire fits with us, but I am predicting it will do just fine in trail tests.
