  • Greater fuel economy
  • Track-suspension system diminished by 25%
  • Increased mission effectiveness and driving performance
  • Reduced braking distance on ice, sand, mud and roads
  • Ability to withstand high speeds for longer durations

Compared to traditional steel tracks, Soucy Defense's rubber band tracks cut down on weight by 50%. This means troops can add more mission-critical components and essential survivability enhancements, such as armour and other protective equipment, without impacting vehicle performance in hostile environments. Added protection is critical to the survival of personnel as well as the vehicle itself. Unlike steel tracks, rubber band tracks require no replacement segments. Soldiers carry less equipment, obtain superior survivability, and are better protected.
