Fresh Product: Dunlop’s Trailmax Mission Tyre

7 months ago

According to Dunlop, the design and construction of its new Trailmax Mission represents a complete reinvention of the 50/50 tyre, and was one of the most comprehensive tyre projects they’ve ever undertaken.

“Customer input was key”, explains Dunlop’s PR about its all-new Trailmax Mission. “Engineers and researchers attended consumer shows, rallies and various events for years gathering data, and more than 10 rider surveys were conducted among a vast audience. The result of the research showed Dunlop that the existing offerings in the 50/50 tyre category presented riders with the ultimate compromise. You can have ‘this’, but you will give up ‘that’. The challenge to the Dunlop team was to create a tyre that didn’t force customers to compromise between street performance, dirt performance, ruggedness, or longevity. Meeting the performance of modern adventure bikes called for a whole new approach to tyre design and construction. Thus the Trailmax Mission was born: One of the most versatile tyres Dunlop has ever made,” Dunlop’s PR goes on to say.


  • Staggered Step – These steps give the side knobs more rigidity, and create more biting edges for increased off-road grip.
  • Aggressive Upper Sidewall – Wrap-around side lugs add rigidity and durability in rocky terrain, and improve steering in sand, mud and gravel.
  • Improved Tread Grooves – Deep tread grooves help the Mission deliver unyielding grip in a wide variety of terrain.


From $220 (fronts); from $290 (rears) // Ficeda Accessories
