King of the Hammers

KOH: Origins

King of the Hammers is one of the hardest off road races on the planet. Johnson Valley in the huge Navajo desert is the home to 70 miles circle the drivers must make twice! King of the Hammers is really challenging with long gravel and sand stretches and rock crawling up some big boulder canyons.

You need strong hardware, great suspension and tires that can handle the rocks as well as speed racing through the desert.
