HomeRubber Track BenefitsMobility and PerformanceIncreased Travel Time

Increased Travel Time

  • Ability to withstand higher speeds for longer periods
  • Maximum speed: +/- 80 km/h
  • Top speed increased by 8 to 10 km/h
  • Acceleration increased by 15 to 25%
  • Braking distance reduced by up to 30%
  • Higher overall rolling resistance –> 0-20 km/h
  • Lower overall rolling resistance –> 35-50 km/h

Rubber band tracks increase troops' travel time from operational to tactical level thanks to fuel savings of up to 30%. Soucy tracks can withstand high speeds for longer periods while increasing the very top speed of a vehicle by 8 to 10 km/h with the use of specific rubber track drive sprockets. Acceleration is increased by 15 to 25% depending on the type of soil. Braking distance is greatly reduced on all kinds of ground (ice, sand, mud, and road) compared to steel tracks—up to 30%. With rubber tracks, armoured vehicle drivers experience easier movement on paved roads without damaging the pavement. Rubber tracks' weight reduction of nearly 50% compared to steel tracks makes for a reduced overall gross vehicle weight.
