Duluth, Georgia – June 3rd, 2022. The Baja 500 takes place this week in Ensenada, Mexico and Team Black Hills UTV is prepped and ready to conquer the grueling Mexico desert. OBOR Tires has been testing and developing a high-speed desert UTV race tire in collaboration with Mike Cafro and Jamie Kirkpatrick. The new Polaris Pro R has plenty of power to turn the 33×9.5R15 DAEMON UTV race tire.
The DAEMON has a rounded profile and is one of the lightest UTV tires on the market, coming in at 39 lb. With an 8-ply-rated radial construction, this tire is as durable and puncture-resistant as any tire on the market. “The design of the DAEMON Tire initially came from the popular OBOR PREDATOR Tire and with small modifications we were able to develop a UTV tire specifically for high-speed desert racing,” said marketing manager, Bruce Nyland.
There is no better place to launch an UTV tire than at the SCORE INTERNATIONAL Baja 500. Mike Cafro and Jamie Kirkpatrick will be debuting the new OBOR DAEMON tire at Tech and Contingency on June 3, 2022. Team BlackHills UTV has had a lot of success over the past few years at the Baja 500 and now running the new DAEMON, we are excited to see how this tire will perform in the toughest conditions in the world.
