McLaren’s heavy-duty rubber tracks have five layers of rubber compounds. The exterior layer provides traction and cut resistance and the next two layers are softer to maintain flexibility, absorb shocks and prevent cracking and weathering. The final two layers help bond the core metal components of the tracks to the rubber to protect against water and oxidation. The company offers the tracks in three types, designed for friction-, positive- and gear-driven systems.
