Mattracks, a pioneer of the rubber track conversion systems, introduced its newest series in its already diverse track lineup, EZtracks. After years of development that included testing all around the globe, Mattracks has engineered this new series to be affordable and at the same time innovative and new.

“Perfection doesn’t have to come at a price,” said CEO Glen Brazier. “It’s the shape of things to come.”

The EZtracks system, with its unique shape due to its “Boa Con-Track-tion” system, allows an increased footprint that is centrally located under the vehicle’s axles to provide equal ground pressure over the entire system all while keeping the tracks within the confines of the vehicle’s overall length and providing extra clearance for fenders and body parts. In addition, the design provides greater sprocket engagement, according to the manufacturer.

The EZtrack system also allows for the use of multiple sprocket sizes and combinations to facilitate any vehicle size and drive train utilizing Mattracks Sprositive design. Its ease of steering, efficiency and smooth ride is accomplished by its wheel arrangement, track tread design and by using Mattracks rubber torsion anti-torque system to make full utilization of the vehicle’s own suspension.

EZtracks will be available in both ATV and UTV systems. The UTV model, EZ-UR has a MSRP of $3,795.

Mattracks, which was originally conceived in 1992 by Glen Brazier’s son Matt (thus the name) and was first introduced in 1994, currently has more than 100 different models that it manufactures and sells throughout the world in more than 100 different countries and on all seven continents. It also is involved in research and development contracts for the U.S. government on not only tracks; but manufacturing processes, unmanned ground vehicles, robotics, batteries, electric motors, controllers and autonomous navigation. Mattracks designs, engineers, manufactures, markets and distributes its track systems and all of its components out of its company’s headquarters based in Karlstad, Minn.
