Achilles Desert Hawk AT Review
The Achilles Desert Hawk AT is a capable off-road tire that offers solid on-road performance at a budget price.
- Solid off-road grip
- Decent on-road manners
- Limited warranty
- Not great in colder/wintry conditions
- Limited sizes
Making use of a four row tread design, the center tread rows are more tightly packed for better on-road driving feel and responsiveness. Larger gaps between these rows and the exterior/shoulder treads allows plenty of biting edges with lots of void space to grip loose surfaces. Plus, on-road these large grooves work to evacuate water easily, increasing its overall braking performance in the wet and significantly reducing the opportunities for hydroplaning.
The shoulder tread blocks make use of an alternating pattern to help give more grip in off-road driving, while added length and width make for solid handling characteristics on-road.
Perhaps the tire’s biggest drawback is its lack of resistance to hardening in colder temperatures, meaning it’s not very effective in colder climates.
A 45,000 mile tread life guarantee is something, and not altogether terrible considering the price, but it’s hardly a highlight.
