    Arctic Trucks Managing Director, Peter Smith, said: “Basecamp really lived up to its name here! As the most extreme downhill mountain biking event of its kind, Red Bull Hardline presents a demanding challenge, not only for the riders and their bikes but also for the support vehicles.

    Our extensive re-engineering of the D-Max AT35s body, frame, suspension and drivetrain, combined with the additional equipment, ensured it tackled the mountainous terrain and changeable surface conditions with comfort and ease; providing a perfect base of operations for the entire event, wherever support was needed, up or down the mountain.”

These tires look fantastic on such a standout expedition vehicle!”

    The Isuzu D-Max Arctic Trucks AT35, which starts at £47,999 (P3.2 million) in the UK, has been expertly re-engineered with considerable improvements to the body, structure, gearbox, suspension, and tires.
