THE CLASH

ROCK MACHINE × TATRA

PLAY

The third oldest car manufacturer, Tatra has been known for its original truck solutions, ability to work in the most extreme conditions, multiple Dakar victories and most recently for its defense industry program. For our products to go head to head first looked a bit crazy but since our factory resides next to Tatra‘s plant it was eventually quite a natural idea.

We took a brand new Blizzard ERZ to see what would happen when we put it against the T-815 cargo/troop carrier on Tatra‘s home soil - the factory polygon. Shimano Steps E8000 equipped Blizzard with Rock Machine factory rider Vojta Bláha behind the bars vs. 10,500 kg all-wheel drive dirt monster on a track that reveals all the weaknesses. 45 degrees ascent, wet surface, irregular bumps, you name it. Well, it was a hell of a battle indeed.
