What’s the best way to choose a tyre for my motorcycle?
We have a pretty simple selection – Ask yourself these questions.
Will I be riding in Soft? Hard? or bit of everything? The answer will mean S/T, H/T or I/T.
Will I be riding off road or on a closed circuit / MX track? The answer will mean Tractionator or Terrapactor.
Will I be riding extreme, like enduro cross or slow speed technical terrain a bit like trials riding on my off road bike? Then the answer might be Hybrid.
Then choose the right size (consult your dealer or the bike owner’s manual for recommendation).
What S/T, H/T, I/T means?
S/T = Soft terrain (loose, sandy loam, pine forest, clay) great traction, shorter wear life. I/T = Intermediate (mix of everything) all round traction, medium wear life. H/T = Hard Terrain (gravel roads, rocky fire trails, hard pack desert and sand). Extreme.
In other words, Soft, Middle, Hard Terrain application (it doesn’t mean Soft, Middle or hard rubber compound).
