Mitas Conquers Sandy Motocross Terrains With All-New TERRA FORCE-MX SAND 2

The all-new SAND 2 pattern gives ultimate traction in deep sand.

Motocross riders will soon have a new tire to conquer deep sand with added traction and control when the new Mitas TERRA FORCE-MX SAND 2 comes off the line this October. Developed and tested with racers, this new rear tire was designed to give top traction in deep, soft sand. The new tread pattern will replace the current SAND pattern for rear wheels.

Gustavo Pinto Teixeira, vice president of two wheels and specialty tires at Yokohama TWS, remarked, “The TERRA FORCE-MX SAND 2 really takes tire performance on sandy terrain to a whole new level. We are always testing out new compounds and tread designs so racers can get optimal performance and control, even in the most challenging conditions. We’re pleased to see that our tire innovation pays off, too, with Mathis Valin (737 Performance GasGas Team) already winning the MX125 Junior World Championship and EMX125 race in Latvia, riding on the SAND 2.”

The new TERRA FORCE-MX SAND 2 brings a whole new tread pattern featuring a deep (19.7 millimeter) paddle design with wide voids for ultimate traction when accelerating, cornering and braking. Its high performance, hard rubber compound and specially designed carcass with increased lateral support give riders even more incredible control. 

Classified as NHS (Not for Highway Service), the SAND 2 is identified by its characteristic dual red stripes and comes only as a rear fitment. It can be used with the Mitas TERRA FORCE-MX SAND or TERRA FORCE-MX SM front tire.
