You are aware that BOWFIGHTERS describes running two different tires right? Crimefighters in front for more side bite for steering and bowties in the rear for more forward and less side bite. Combining the two on one tire tread would be innovative and may make for a good tread but would not serve the same purpose as running the two different tires.

I was pitting at the Proline booth for the SC race and they had the Bowfighter tire. It was good for the qualifiers but in the main a lot of people went with Holeshots.

well there it is, i wasnt expecting a picture lol. anyways i realize this tire mite not have the same feel as bowfighters we use today where its a combination between running crimefighters upfront n bowties in the rear but this tire none the less looked great. it almost reminded me of a tire that looked like a tire panther already has on the market but its proline n its a bowfighter, with that said i was jawdropped.

hmm seems a odd one... but i'm sure it will suit some tracks well.. I prefer the idea of Bow Fighter.. than running that.. -but with that being said, would be interesting to try them.... It will have less forward bite than bows.. and less side bite then crimes.. seems as though the option it could be is on the front sort of a semi crime.. if crime's are to edgy for that track.. -But then you always have the option of cutting the outer edge 45 degrees..

would be interesting to try.. but cant see it being much better than Bow Fighter combo..

They plan to release it for short course only on the 15th, and their short course line doesn't have a crimefighter or normal bowtie tread. I would compare it to AKA Enduros.
