Selecting the right tyre for your adventure bike is one of the most crucial decisions to make when setting up your dual sport machine. The decision of what front tyre or rear tyre to install comes down to a wide range of factors, with the installer having to weigh up the type of adventure motorcycle they are riding, the intended amount of off road/on road use as well as the general riding terrain on which their ride will take them. The adventure tyre category is well stocked by a large range of well known motorcycle tyre manufacturers offering adventure focused dual purpose tyres. Motocross tyre makers Dunlop, Michelin, Bridgestone and Pirelli all manufacture DOT approved street legal offerings, with many offering a mix of tread patterns, depths and tyre compounds. By varying these features, tyre makers have tailored their product to suit differing conditions and usages, and allow them to offer a tyre that performs better when subject to extended periods of road use, or one at the other end of the scale that perform better when the enduro and off road elements take priority. As well as these larger brands just mentioned, there are a significant number of smaller specialized manufacturers that tend to focus on this segment of the market. Shinko, Heidenau, Metzeler, Mitas and Continental have delivered high performing and long lasting adventure off road tyres to riders all over Australia.
