Gardena, CA – February 4, 2019 – MILESTAR, a leader of high value performance tires is pleased to announce the PATAGONIA SXT UTV tire completing its first-ever professional race. Milestar’s first foray into UTV off-road competition came in the form of arguably the most grueling single-day race in North America. To showcase the toughness of the new Patagonia SXT, Milestar partnered with Savvy Off Road, FOX Shocks, and Dan Fresh Racing, to compete at the 2019 Ultra4 Can Am UTV Race Presented by HCR. Starting in 47th, Dan Fresh plowed his way forward in his Can Am Maverick X3 to finish 12th overall. With only 28 of the starting 112 finishing; it is a testament to this race and the toll it takes on man and machine.
Dan Fresh of Orange County, California; a veteran in off road racing has competed in several classes over his 20-year career; securing four Baja 1000 wins, two SCORE Championships, and the overall victory of the King of The Hammers Everyman Challenge in 2018. For 2019, Fresh partnered with Savvy Off Road to help prepare his Can Am Maverick X3, equipped with 32×10.00R15 Patagonia SXT tires. No stranger to harsh desert, rock-racing, Savvy Off Road has eight class wins at King of the Hammers, including six overall victories.
Launched in late 2018, the PATAGONIA SXT is a UTV and Side By Side specific off-road tire designed to conquer the harshest desert and rock conditions. It is constructed with a Kevlar® belt package to enhance strength while keeping the tire’s carcass weight as light as possible. Formulated with a cut and chip resistant, silica-enriched tread compound, the SXT is capable of providing competent traction in the silt, sand and rocks. Deep, wide grooves with stone ejectors help disperse dirt and debris, while overlapping wide tread blocks maintain stability and improve sure-footed control during rapid acceleration and braking. The Patagonia SXT is now available for both factory direct and warehouse shipments.
“Entering the recreational and competition UTV segment is an evolution of our Patagonia family of tires and shows our commitment to the light truck and off-roading community,” stated Andrew Hoit, Tireco’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “We’re excited to be partnered with Dan Fresh Racing and being able to showcase what the SXT can do during one of the toughest races in the world.”
