Want to control your future outlook with a good grip on the road ahead?
Most of us spend our days confined to the small square footage of space that surrounds our desks. Sometimes we are momentarily transported by the posters of inspirational quotes we’ve put on our walls, the picturesque scenery on our screensaver – or if we’re lucky enough – the nice view outside our window. They say that in order to decrease stress, you must increase your visual vantage point. And the reality is that we were designed to stand and be outdoors. Our biology positively responds to the sun, and adventure gives us a feeling of being alive.
The new Landsail tire called the Stormblazer CLX20 was designed to get you back into nature, even if it’s through the vantage point of a suspended vehicle window! The focus of this product is to provide the bustling crossover market with a smartly engineered and high-quality hybrid tire. We were so excited about the Stormblazer CLX20 that we purchased a Subaru Outback to build out and use for the brand at outdoor and automotive events. Landsail named the 2023 Suby THE CROSSLAND. Our objective behind doing this was that we wanted to feel what you feel, we wanted our hands to be on the steering wheel of a properly-built overland crossover that’s after adventure.
About the Build: THE CROSSLAND
When it came to outfitting the vehicle, we partnered with some of the best in the industry: Ready Lift helped with giving the vehicle clearance and the ability to run a larger tire suspension. For the front, we used a Rally Innovations front bumper and a Primitive Racing skid plate. We finished it off with lighting by Baja Designs. All these tweaks helped with additional clearance, protection, and better nighttime visibility for safer explorations. For recovery, we used the 5th tire mount by RIGd Supply with the Maxtrax recovery board attachment and the Rhino USA recovery strap kit. To air down and air up we are used a Viair compressor. From Rokblokz, we are running their mud flaps that matched the recovery boards and overall color theme of the vehicle. For the fun stuff, a full kit by Yakima was used to thoughtfully take up the roof space. The system was fully modular with a basket to carry all the recovery gear including a Hobie Fishing Kayak from OEX in Sunset Beach. To finish off the build, we used ICON Journey wheels in 17x8 with a 38mm to offset on our new Landsail Stormblazer CLX20 245/65r17s.
