Traction while climbing loose steep inclines is on par with the KM2. Spin out and breakaways are minimal when the differentials are both open in 4-low and non-existent when the differentials are both locked on the loosest and most angled terrain. The quality of traction the KO2 tires provide in these difficult conditions rival that of the knobbiest mud terrains on the market—a big statement for an all-terrain tire. The extensive siping found throughout the KO2’s iconic interlocking tread block pattern provide enhanced traction beyond the aggressive treads themselves. While the tread edges remain sharp and unphased after 15,000 miles of hard use, the sipes edges themselves display slight rounding—this indicates that the sipes are working hard and essential to the tread pattern’s performance.
