The RBCC rubber compound was developed by IRC and its performance has been proved in numerous races. Its shoulders are layered in with RBCC compound for high grip performance that functions at the microscopic level like numerous studs, and the center tread is composed of Hard Compound, which strikes a balance between wear-resistance, grip, and rolling resistance.

RICE BRAN CERAMIC COMPOUNDRice Bran Ceramic is, as its moniker suggests, derived from simple, ordinary, everyday rice. What we do to it, however is anything but. Rice bran (or the outer husk of an individual rice grain) is ground to a fine powder, mixed with a thermosetting resin, and super-heated. When cooled, the block is pulverized to create millions of porous, ball-shaped structures with semi-rigid fingers extending in all directions. These Rice Bran Ceramic "balls" are then kneaded with the rubber and molded into tires. The spikes which extend from the RBC reach out and grab the uneven road surface for increased traction while the pores will wick water from the road surface to create a larger tire-to-road contact patch.
