Dunlop has revealed its new 50/50 trail tire, the Trailmax Raid. Designed for use on and off road, the tire delivers excellent wet-weather capabilities and long-distance touring performance for mid-size dual sports and large adventure motorbikes.
The tire’s design was inspired by Dunlop’s D908 RR, a purely off-road rally raid tire with pronounced tread blocks. These characteristics were chosen to deliver enhanced off-road performance and provide a key part of the Trailmax Raid’s profile.
The Trailmax Raid will be available in three front sizes ranging from 19in to 21in fitments, and six rear sizes for 17in and 18in wheels. The first sizes will be available from March 1, 2023, with additional sizes being released in Q2 2023.
“We are excited to launch Trailmax Raid, which further strengthens our trail offering,” said Luca Davide Andreoni, marketing manager at Dunlop Motorcycle Europe. “By combining our expertise and technologies from the off-road, adventure touring and sports touring segments, we have created a true 50/50 tire that excels for a wide range of bikes in varied conditions. Furthermore, Trailmax Raid gives riders particularly reassuring performance on wet roads, unlocking even more versatility than they might expect from a tire that also delivers excellent off-road braking and traction.”
