That'd be a fair bet. Their website appears to make no reference to a "Mark 1".

Also have a look in BCF they have three different maxtrax type recovery things, different makes but the same thing / idea.

I only use Maxtrax but here are alternatives - BCF can be expensive

And the only difference between the Mk1s and Mk2s is the shape of the holes for mounting on roof racks - everything else is the same.

No! the design is different there are more studs running up a few raised channels and made a bit sturdier so they shouldn't break (unless you try very very hard)
Maxtrax obviously decided to remodel to perfect their product after a few years of feedback from their customers.

If you have the choice & don't care about an extra few dollars go the MK 2 especially if you put yourself in the situation where you need them often.

If you can get the MK 1 as they're still good just not as good so the question is how much cheaper are they for old stock?
There's a trade off.

As per Nigel there are a lot of differences apart from the hole. You can not stack old with MK11 neatly.

mk1 do crack more easily in the ramp areas but are still a great recovery item & they do not stack mk1 & mk2 together neatly & a tip spray the back of them with pure & simple, cooking oil etc so when in sticky mud they don't fill up & weigh 20kgs
