Mitas, part of the Trelleborg Group, will reveal a new generation of Enduro and Extreme Enduro tires at Erzbergrodeo, the motorsport event held from May 30 to June 2, 2019, in Eisenerz, Austria.
Compared to the previous generation, Mitas TERRA FORCE-EF and TERRA FORCE-EH feature improved performance on a wide range of off-road surfaces than its predecessors. A larger footprint allows better grip in various riding conditions, while spaced knobs are designed to provide great clean out ability in mud or sand.
“Mitas TERRA FORCE-EF and TERRA FORCE-EH are successors to the popular and widely known Mitas Enduro and Extreme Enduro off-road tire ranges. The new generation was developed and tested in cooperation with many professional riders. Knowing that many riders are happy with our current Enduro and Extreme Enduro tires, these will remain part of the extended portfolio of Mitas off-road tires,” explains Ksenija Bitenc, director of the Mitas Motorcycle Tires division.
The Mitas TERRA FORCE- EF Super, marked with a yellow stripe, features a fibrous durable long-lasting rubber compound that ensures outstanding grip and very low abrasion even on hard terrain. It resists tearing and cutting, and is therefore suited to wide range of terrains, from soft and intermediate to rocky. Tread pattern knobs are designed to meet specific Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM) regulations.
Mitas TERRA FORCE-EF Super light, marked with a green stripe, is designed for harder enduro races. Compared to the Super version, it has a softer tread compound that ensures better adhesion and performance on hard and rocky terrain or in wet forest terrain on tree roots. Designed for the harder competitions, it complies with current FIM regulations for enduro competition tires.
Mitas TERRA FORCE- EH Super soft, marked with double green stripes features an extra soft sticky tread compound for extreme enduro races. The tire is best suited to extreme rocky, stony, wet and mud terrains. It is ideal for vertical climbs on hard enduro races and for all extreme terrains. TERRA FORCE-EH is not street legal and is only available as NHS (not for Highway Service).
