Choosing a safari tyre

E-07 and E-08: These are rugged, versatile cross-ply tyres with exceptional lifespan and superb highway manners for such hardwearing tyres. Both are designed to perform well on sealed and unsealed roads, tracks and light to intermediate off-road terrain. The E-07 is easily our most popular safari tyre, performing and lasting equally well on a wide mix of terrains, with a good mix of highway grip and self-clearing ability in softer terrains. The E08 improves road handling by having more rubber in contact with the road, but it is less adventurous off-road.

E-09 'Adventure' and E-09 'Dakar': The E09 is something of a legend among hard-core adventure riders. Tough cross-ply construction and an aggressive block tread make it supremely capable in difficult terrains like sand, mud and loose rock. Already a superb high-performance off-road rally tyre, Mitas recently reinforced the carcass and upgraded the compound to produce the (almost indestructible) Dakar version. Choose the regular ('Adventure') version where easy fitting & removal or minimal unsprung weight are important, while the beefier 'Dakar' version offers improved puncture and chip resistance and is a better choice for serious riding in Australian off-road conditions. To help reduce confusion, we use the designations E09A and E09D to differentiate between the two. Telling them apart when new is easy: the Dakar version has a yellow stripe on the tread.

E-10 (belted bias): You cannot beat traditional cross-ply tyres for sheer rugged toughness and low construction cost. However, the advent of large, powerful adventure-tourers has created a need for an offroad tyre with better traction, higher load capacity and improved high-speed handling. The flexible, surface-hugging nature of radial construction makes it the logical choice, but a radial's softer sidewalls are more vulnerable to damage when taken off the beaten track. The answer? A hybrid, belted-bias construction that cleverly combines the sidewall strength of a cross-ply with the enhanced traction and stability of a radial. Enter the Mitas E-10, the culmination of almost a century of experience in making the world's best off-road motorcycle tyres. The large, open tread pattern means it chomps its way through mud, sand and rock as effortlessly and as securely as it eats up the highway. There is simply no better tyre to fit to your modern adventure bike. NOW AVAILABLE IN REINFORCED DAKAR VERSION.

All Mitas safari tyres are DOT-approved and have an S (180km/h) or T (190km/h) speed rating.

 
         

 

 

 


Frequently asked questions

My current tyres are (are not) tubeless. Can I fit a tubed (tubeless) tyre?

A tubeless tyre features a modified bead profile designed to be airtight when mated with the corresponding profile on a tubeless rim. The tyre can be used on a regular (tube type) rim, but it will not be airtight and so a tube must be fitted. Similarly, a tube-type tyre lacks this modified bead profile and will not form an airtight seal even if fitted to a tubeless rim. To run without tubes, you must have tubeless tyres and tubeless rims.

If you intend to use a tube, it makes no difference whether you buy a tubeless or tube-type tyre.
