Track junkies: Tire warmers choice?

Hi folks,

Simple question: What tire warmer solution have you opted for your V4 and why?

Moto D, Chicken Hawk or Woodcraft. Cap it if you can afford them.

Moto D because I know owner Scott and he rides. Warmers are consistent and thin so they won't get snagged on fenders or chain. Probably one of the best for accurate and consistent even heating of the tire.

Woodcraft because I also know Owner Eric who designs his products from a racer's standpoint. Bulkier than Moto D but stay much warmer unplugged. Better quilting.

Chicken Hawk because they have been around forever. They do little else other than concentrate on warmers. Most popular in the paddock. Pitbull stand of tire warmers.

Cap it supposed to be superior quality and craftsmanship to the others mentioned, but pricey. I have no experience with them other than some customers swearing by them.

Just my .02 cents����

I used STG(s) warmers they are a single temp set of warmers for a very good price. I've used them at three track days this year with no issues.

Anyone will work. Your looking for 80 degrees C
Use tyre blankets so rim also warms up. I stay on warmers for 1hour minimum before a race with blankets.

A track day is nice as you get a two lap easy pace to get to temps.

Not sure what the price is on these, but they are digital and there is an inside flap that goes over the rim to heat it up/keep it warm as well. I might give these a go for my next set. The LEDs are a nice touch to see where you are at temperature wise from a glance.

A lot of the GP teams use these warmers and seem to be more prevalent across the pond.

Chicken Hawk professional line for me. I like that I can control the temp to the degree.

Those Evo Tri Zone warmers are looking hot and seem apex predators! And I was thinking Capits to be premium and pricey! Wonder what's the advantage of having the rim also warmed up?!
