Why is Flex Trax 30 MPH Speed Limit?

Reduce your speed !

Drivers should always exercise caution and be observant of adverse driving conditions. The use of these products are not a substitute for safe driving or proper judgment by the vehicle driver.  Use common sense!

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!"

Black Ice

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!

Road Icing: Safety Tips to Remember

  • The #1 icy road driving tip: Reduce your speed.
    Slowing down is the most important thing to do when driving on ice and snow. High speeds make it both easy to lose control and difficult to stop. You should never be driving faster than 45mph in any vehicle when roads are icy - not even on highways! In many cases, much slower speeds are necessary. You can slide off of the road on certain types of more treacherous icing - like black ice - at 10mph or less! If you're fishtailing or sliding at all, it means you are going too fast for the conditions.

    You don't have the skill to drive at normal speeds on icy roads.

    A factor in many of the serious and fatal crashes is overconfidence in one's abilities and/or equipment (traction control, antilock brakes, stability control, winter tires). Some feel that they have sufficient experience in winter driving, and can therefore continue normally (at or above the speed limit). But a fishtail on ice that occurs at highway speeds is usually unrecoverable by even the most quick-witted and experienced drivers. Practicing slow-speed slides in parking lots is useless for what happens to a vehicle at highway speed. A person who enters a high-speed slide will quickly learn that it is something they can't handle - but all too late.
     

  • The #2 icy road driving tip: Don't drive on icy roads.
    The best way to avoid an accident on an icy road is to simply stay off the roads until the threat passes. Nothing can inconvenience you more than a wreck or getting stuck!
     
  • Wear your seat belt!
    Even though wearing your seat belt should already be a no-brainer at all times, during the winter it's even more critical. An alarming number of road ice fatalities occur with minor accidents where the vehicle occupants were not wearing seat belts.
     
  • Pay attention to the weather.
    Make the weather forecast part of your daily routine during the winter. Awareness of conditions will help you be more prepared. Read more about warning signs to watch for.
     
  • Go easy on your brakes
    Brake application is a common trigger of slides that result in a loss of vehicle control. ABS (antilock brakes) do not work well on ice and snow, and often will lock up your wheels regardless. Sliding wheels are uncontrollable, that is, steering input will not change the vehicle's direction if the wheels are sliding.
     
  • Turn into a slide
    If you're fishtailing or sliding, it usually means you are going too fast. Reduce your speed so you won't need to worry about this! Most high-speed slides are difficult to correct successfully. If you're caught off guard and begin sliding, turn your wheels in the direction that the rear of your car is sliding. It helps to look with your eyes where you want the car to go, and turn the steering wheel in that direction. It is easy to steer too far, causing the car to slide in the other direction. If this happens (called overcorrecting), you'll need to turn in the opposite direction. Read more about correcting a slide.
     
  • Icy road accidents happen in multiples
    Your own accident is sometimes not the greatest threat to you - additional out-of-control vehicles often are. Read about what to do if you are in an accident on an icy road.
     
  • Don't stop for accidents or stranded vehicles along an icy roadway.
    Being a Good Samaritan is a noble thing, but on an icy road, it can cause more problems than it solves. Parking on the side of an icy highway can cause passing drivers to brake and lose control, putting the lives of everyone involved in danger. Unless the stranded driver is in immediate danger, the best thing you can do is contact the authorities (call 911), who are equipped to safely block the road or divert traffic while a tow truck can do the job properly.
     
  • Avoid hills or other dangerous roads during icy conditions.
    The laws of physics are unforgiving! If you attempt to tackle a steep enough incline, there is nothing you can do to stop gravity from taking its toll.
