Why is Flex Trax 30 MPH Speed Limit?
Reduce your speed !
Drivers should always obey the law, exercise extreme caution, and be observant of adverse driving conditions.
The use of our traction products are not a substitute for safe driving or proper judgment by the vehicle driver.
Use common sense!
We have had many clients ask- "What is the speed limit of Flex Trax"?
Answer-We say 30 MPH and this does not mean that you can travel at this speed if it is unsafe to do so.
Destructive Testing-> (We have intentionally tried to push Flex Trax to its Extreme Limits with 55-60 MPH and over 800 miles of Hot Dry Pavement and the results of these very demanding test were very little wear to the Trax, and no issues at all with the Centrifugal Forces applied, but DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME! :)
Why is my Car giving me a rough ride in colder temps?
"You can't expect anything you strap on a tire to be quiet. Anyone that has ever used chains understands this. These are designed to get you out of a bad situation. Not to put on and go to the movies. Nothing you buy are going to be magical and install themselves,you may have to get down on your knees and get dirty. As for traction Flex-Trax work just fine, way better that 40lbs of chain beating the fender-well. I have used these on three different trucks to get me home. If you carry a spare tire in case of a flat, and live in the Midwest its a No-Brainer."
"Your product is the only reason I made it past the most difficult road conditions I have ever been on!"
"Coming down the mountain from Snow Shoe Mountain Resort, West Virginia. I did not have to put them on until I hit total black ice and snow...2012 Toyota Tundra Double Cab 2WD with a 400lbs+ ballast strapped down over the axle and a 4 adult passengers.
After initial install I did a quick test spin of the tires and the right side came off, so I realized that I did not properly seat the hardware and redid the installation double checking and triple checking all connections. Second test, no problem. Somewhat of a bumpy ride but immediate different level of confidence on the road. Your product is the only reason I made it past the most difficult road conditions I have ever been on! Nonetheless I had a line of cars and trucks follow my treads because the second they veered from them I could see fishtailing and instability.
I am totally sold on your product!"
First of all, It is very dangerous to travel on Ice & Snow.
If you must travel in adverse conditions, you really should be very careful and not be in any hurry to get to your destination.
It is not safe to travel on "Black Ice" at any speed! We tell our clients, should they encounter Black Ice, get out of the vehicle and put on your Ice Skates !
Safely Pull off the road if you ever feel that you are not in total control of your vehicle.
Do not become a statistic!
