The Kenda K776f Gauntlet is the front of the rear of the K779 Gauntlet. It is road approved and designed for use on hard, rocky ground. It may have taken a long time, but Michelin has certainly worked on its next-generation enduro tyre. Simplified to “Enduro”, the range is also boldly simple with only two front mixes and only one rear option (at the time of writing). Deserted road homologated racing tire, perfect for your Honda Africa Twin or the new Yamaha Tenere 700, they will take you through the Atlas Mountains without breaking a sweat. FIM Enduro approved Dunlop`s EN91 meets all the boxes if Offroad Enduro is your thing.

It`s a quality tyre. I`ve been having more and more dirty thoughts lately, and now I`m turning them into action! The weather has become wetter and cooler, and it`s time to sink deeper into the earth. While some sit inside, looking wistfully at the gray sky and lamenting about summer, I banish the winter blues by pulling my enduro bike through, over and around the landscape at every opportunity. From a technical point of view, a foam is therefore not legal on the road. However, we haven`t heard of anyone in the MOT running a mouse, nor did we mention any customer issues with the law. Foams are a popular addition for enduro motorcyclists and many of our customers drive them on the road. However, you should know that they are not designed for high-speed use. When used on the road at road speeds, they heat up very quickly and are susceptible to breakdown. It is a combination of Enduro, MX and trail tires. It`s also road legal, so if you drive your CRF250 like one on Clapham High Road, at least you won`t be nodding your head for your tires! The new rules are even simpler.

To be approved for road use, a tyre must comply with UNECE Regulation 30, which stipulates that a tyre must bear an “E” mark on the sidewall. Just look for an E11 marking and it means that the tire is legal for road use. Yes, a motocross tire that is legal on the road! This is a road-approved motocross tire that is also manufactured in a useful 19-inch narrow rear. The key to the new tire is silica. This is the first time Michelin has used silica instead of soot in an off-road tire. It may not seem too high on the scale of exciting things you`ll ever hear, but it`s a big technological step for off-road tires. We tested the middle front and rear (not the hard front) on different terrains, including an Enduro GP support race at Hawkstone Park in the UK with a mix of MX track with a hard base, soft sand and mould from silty leaves, rocks and roots in the trees. Not all tyres are road homologated and it`s almost impossible to ride on trails in the UK without venturing out onto the road, so how do you know if your Enduro motorcycle`s tyres are road legal? A: Well, the answer is that the tyre meets FIM specifications at a tread block height of 13mm when new, but FIM guidelines actually allow that if the competition does not include a public road open to the public, there is no need for road approval. The crucial point is the maximum height of the profile block of 13 mm if it is new. For this reason, the FIM has had no problems with the homologation of the super-soft extreme tyres, which are all NHS tyres without road homologation, even for international extreme events. Be aware that if your Enduro event includes a section of an open public road such as a BEC round in the UK, your bike and tyres must be road legal and the Enduro Medium will remain the best tyre for you. Obviously, the Xtreme is super soft and therefore should not be used in a situation involving roadwork/fireworks.

Michelin has just released a brand new range of enduro tyres and after seeing the great progress they have made with sports tyres with the Power RS, they are now raising the bar for enduro. The previous series has certainly stood the test of time, the Enduro Comp III has been around since the 90s and still wins races and championships year after year, it is a favorite among professionals and amateurs alike. They are replaced by the Medium Enduro rear and a choice of front Medium Enduro or a Hard Front Enduro for tougher and dustier conditions. There is no confusing choice of compounds or alternatives, these tires will do it all. If you want to take the risk and drive on your local paved road to enter your preferred greenway, proceed with caution. A bypass or right-of-way is a highway because roads do not legally require asphalt. So if you`re pulled by an off-road motorcycle on a green trail — when they`re on — you could find yourself in hot water. Therefore, it makes sense to install tires marked for on-road use.

A: The Michelin 90/100/21 front medium tire is indeed excellent on hard ground, a new “hard” version of it is planned for spring 2020 so we will have both 90/90-21 and 90/100-21 hard options, this could be a more durable front tire on large enduro bikes in dry conditions, even an alternative to the desert front for rally racers! For enduro riders accustomed to Michelin`s Competition range, this range may seem simplified, but this is all due to improvements in tire technology that allow for a wider rear than older models. Please note that this is a ONE Extreme EVENT ONLY tire due to the super soft compound of Michelin Xtrem. For all Fast Forestry Enduro FIM / BEC / Club Enduro / progressive greenway. Stay with Enduro Medium The Pirelli Scorpion Pro F.I.M is one of the first choices when you need a very powerful all-rounder tire. We only stock some of the most popular sizes, if you need any of the other blends available from Pirelli, give us a call. The body has new layers of polyester and is more flexible for better cushioning; This is especially noticeable at slower speeds. Part of the improvement in grip is due to the new tread design, but it is facilitated by the flexible housing, which provides an extended contact surface to the pipe holding pressure. Radiated tread blocks help avoid the piece, not that the old series would have suffered, but any feature that preserves tire life should be welcome.

And welcome to Silica Mix tread compounds for the off-road world, a first for Michelin. The off-road benefits reflect the advantages of road tires made of silica compounds, wet grip immediately improves in all areas, as does tire life, a 15% improvement in life compared to the Comp III, a tire that has already been praised for its endurance. A directional design of the rear tread ensures the best performance, but the tires are also reversible. Once these sharp, cool edges of the tread are rounded and grip fades, turning the tire on the rim provides sharp new edges to cut into the ground. Julian Oakes was unable to overcome the lack of wear on his Michelin rear medium tyre after winning the over-50 class on his KTM 350 in the first round of the British Enduro Championship in Warren Heath`s highly abrasive gravel box. The Bridgestone Battlecross E50 is an F.I.M. road-approved enduro tyre, perfect for Welsh rallies where asphalt is used between stages. The E50 Extreme is only produced in a rear trim and has an extra soft compound to handle more extreme terrain (but that`s not road legal). A: Yes, of course! We offer robust original Michelin tubes or 4 mm thick Ultra Heavy Duty (UHD) hoses as an alternative to Bib Mousse. On medium Enduro tires, the use of normal inner tubes is acceptable, but on the new Xtrem tires, we recommend using the appropriate Bib foam.

New foams are being developed for this tyre – they should now be available with different compounds for hard, medium and extreme conditions. The slightly larger foam (larger than the old BIB foam) in the medium mixture should be around 13.5/14 psi to better fit the new tire. Technically, the front tracks are good, turn quickly and confidently and cut well above the ruts, the fins are controllable and the grip of both ends is welcome on difficult climbs and smooth grass and roots. There is a choice of two front sizes, a narrow tire to cut the rough and allow very fast and accurate spinning in the traditional 90/90-21, alternatively the 90/100-21 absorbs rough things and ensures less tiring exits, with a huge flat footprint when the front brake is hard.
