We are today launching (the NEW) E-07 120/70B19 & 170/60B17
The new sizes (and pattern) of E-07 were developed especially for big adventure bikes.

Due to a slightly modified tread pattern E-07 delivers an improved off- and on-road riding performance.

A bigger knobbly design provides a plenty of open space between the tread blocks to displace sand, mud and water from the contact patch while keeping enough rubber in contact with the road as the tyres rotate.

Now in stock, ONLY these sizes (120 and 170 - OTHER sizes early in the new year...)

Tnx for these additional info Jyrki! I had the Mitas under the BMuu F800GS Adventure in South Africa and was pretty amazed by its performance. And a good buy too!

These look interesting.

I like the TKC70 rear, but the first tire, while good traction, has created problems for me the last two tires I have had on the bike. The previous one cracked longitudinally around the centre of the tire and its replacement, currently on the bike, is not of a regular shape. The wheel is balanced but it bounces because of a small difference of radius at one point!

I might try the Mitas on the front next time.

On Red, I have the Avon trekrider on the rear and I do like it. Was thinking of putting the TKC 80 on the front, but might try this tire on the front.

I'm going to try the E-07 Dakar on the rear and a Michelin Anakee Wild front this summer on my tour to Alaska. People have been raving about the E-07 and it's grip and longevity. I think the two will be a good combination.

I use standard 07, last easily over 10.000 km. Softer than Dakar...
