People that drive big honking SUVs take a lot of flack from environmentalists for driving big honking (polluting) SUVs. The next time your Prius-owning neighbor says you own a tank, you can respond “Yes I do” with confidence. Mattracks may not be the most innovative invention to date, but it certainly is interesting. The product replaces your standard wheel and rubber combination for a trank-like tread that’ll be able to climb up and over just about any kind of terrain.
The “conversion”, if you can call it that, is said to take “as little as 30 minutes”, considering that it is essentially the same as just changing a set of wheels. Except, well, you’re not exactly gaining a set of winter wheels. These Mattracks are about as all-weather as they get. And because the center hub doesn’t move all that much, it almost looks like you’re gliding.
