Dunlop Trailmax Mission Review with Bike Tyre Warehouse
Mission Accomplished! Living with the new Dunlop TrailMax Mission motorbike tyres
Off the mark, the Mission is a really good looking tyre and will sell lots, we imagine, just based on its looks. But, when you read our May 2020 edition you would have come across this tyre in our Tyre Tech Talk feature on pages 28 and 29 where Bruce gave us all the technical information on this tyre. Go have a read at www.motomedia.com, it really is extremely interesting and informative … and just based on that we were very keen to try the tyre out and we managed to get a set fitted to our Triumph Tiger 800 XCX.
The tyres on the Dirt and Trail magazine Tiger 800XCX were getting a little bit long in the tooth, so we decided to invest in some new rubber.
We have been checking out the new 50/50 Dunlop Trailmax missions for a while – the global hype around these tyres has been pretty impressive – and it seemed like a good choice. We actually ordered a set when we first heard about them, but lock down included some delays with supply.
We took the bike along to the famous Bike Tyre Warehouse in Midrand, where the team removed wheels, replaced tyres, checked brake pads and chain tension chop chop. In todays market, the tyres seemed to be really reasonably priced – we have just fitted another brand on our old faithful Husqvarna Terra, so we had a good idea of comparative costs.
