Pacific Powersports, the U.S. distributor of Motoz Tires brand, announced a multi-year sponsorship of the Backcountry Discovery Routes (BDR), with Motoz Tires named the Official Tire of the upcoming Wyoming Backcountry Discovery Route (WYBDR). The BDR expedition team will be putting the Motoz Tractionator RallZ tires to the test on multi-day, long-distance off-road trips while scouting and filming the 11th adventure motorcycle route, scheduled for release in January 2022.
“We are happy to partner with the Backcountry Discovery Routes because we support their mission to create and preserve off-highway riding opportunities which is great for our customers. We think that our Motoz RallZ Tires are a great fit because they offer 30% more thread depth than most competitors and are well regarded by adventure riders for their high off-road performance and longevity,” said Brian Cornelius, Pacific Powersports.
The Motoz RallZ tire is the most aggressive off-road adventure tire in the Motoz range – perfect for tackling BDR-type terrain. The tires have a unique tread block pattern offering both exceptional traction in the dirt, and also relatively long life span thanks to a self-protecting design. The tire’s carcass is tougher than most adventure tires which helps reduce the possibility of punctures on the trail. Currently available in a variety of tube and tubeless sizes for big and mid-range adventure bikes, the RallZ will also be available in a range of tube-type adventure sizes for light-weight adventure bikes through Pacific Powersports.
“The most common question we get from the community is about tire choices for our routes. We always recommend DOT approved knobby tires with an aggressive tread pattern for superior off-road traction and better grip in technical terrain. The BDR team will be putting the RallZ tires to the test during our upcoming 1,200-mile, 10-day filming expedition of the WYBDR,” said Inna Thorn, director of operations, BDR.
