For its part, the “trail” mode helps maintain circulation and advancement on soft surfaces such as sand by adjusting anti-lock braking to allow for greater slippage of the wheels; The traction control is also configured to allow a greater rotation of the wheels that clean sand, snow or mud from the tires, providing a more passive accelerator response in parallel.
