Intro

20 years ago, when Adventure bikes were in their infancy. Bikes like the Yamaha XTZ750, Suzuki DR650, Honda Africa Twin and KTM 660 Adventure paved the way for the modern Adventure bikes that are so popular today. Tyre choice was limited to Enduro tyres that were made for mud-pluggers or naff road tyres that were available in the less conventional 18″, 19″ and 21″ wheel sizes.

Two decades on and it’s all changed.

Think adventure bike and you’re probably picturing an R1200GS, or perhaps the wide-eyed and beaky R1150GS that came before. Perhaps you’ve had both and you’re now on an R1250GS? You can’t avoid BMW, they have redefined the Adventure bike sector. KTM too have transferred their off-road expertise to the more road-going Adventure range. Bikes like the 1190 and 1290 Adventure are potent road bikes, with off-road pretentions.

Then there’s the re-purposing of the cult names of yesteryear. From Honda’s CRF1000 Africa Twin, to Yamaha’s 1200 Super Ténéré and now the awesome-looking Ténéré 700 which isn’t too far off the wild-looking T7 concept bike. Not forgetting Ducati’s Multistrada range (20 years ago, who would have thought Ducati would be interested in the ADV sector?), which, with the 950 is a genuine off-road capable bike. Then there’s the soft-roader bikes, like Suzuki’s V-Strom 1000, Triumph’s Tiger 800 and even Kawasaki’s Versys which all have an Adventure-style.

So it’s no surprise, with such a huge range of Adventure bikes – spanning from off-road questionable to off-road capable – that there is a bewildering range of tyres to suit.

How to choose the best adventure motorcycle tyre

It’s all about the tread pattern.

Well, it’s ALMOST all about the tread pattern. It’s a little bit about looks too, if we’re being honest.

The tread pattern is the most obvious reference point when you’re looking at picking a new tyre.

If it has huge tread blocks on it, it’s going to be great off-road and not that good on the road. That bit is obvious.

But for a lot of Adventure riders, looks are important. While there aren’t many road-riding Adventure bikers vain enough to fit ultra-knobbly tyres like Continental’s TKC80 to their bike, there are a lot of Adventure-bike riders who like a knobbly-ish tyre because they look good and in some cases, they came with the bike. Michelin’s Anakee Adventure is a good example. The trouble is, many aren’t aware of the compromise that these off-road-ready tyres force road riders to make.

Tyre manufacturers know that rugged-looking tyres sell, so they offer a growing range of road tyres with an edgy-looking tread pattern. Take the Continental Trail Attack 3 as an example, it’s the tyre being used in the image above. It’s essentially a RoadAttack tyre with a crazy-paving tread pattern. It’s a brilliant tyre for road-riding Adventure bikers and it can handle loose trails without getting in a flap. But most bikers opt for a tyre like a Continental TKC70 because it looks much more raw. The trouble is, the TKC70 is no where near as good on the road. It won’t hold a line as well as a road-focused tyre, it won’t be as comfortable to ride on and it won’t last as long. It’s just not a sensible option.

A little tip for you. Tyres like the TKC70 are designed to be 70% unpaved roads and 30% paved roads, while the TKC80 is 80% unpaved and 20% paved. Not all tyre manufacturers make their product as easy to understand as Continental do with their numbering system but if, like most Adventure bike riders, 99% of your miles are on the road, then you don’t want a tyre with knobbly bits on them, even though they do look cool.

Road vs. Soft Road vs. Off Road

Pictured above are two typical Adventure-bike ranges from two of the big players, Michelin and Continental.

On the left you have Michelin and the tyres are the Road 5 Trail, Anakee Adventure and the Anakee Wild. On the right you have Continental and the tyres are the Trail Attack 3, TKC 70 and TKC80.

When a customer comes to our workshop for a new pair of tyres for their Adventure bike, but they don’t know what they want to fit next, we’ll show them a manufacturer’s range as it’s the best way to understand how different the tyres are.

Only when they’re pictured side-by-side, can you see how extreme the off-road orientated tyres are. Seeing them like this helps a customer understand that while the big block tyres look cool, they’re not a good road option.

On the road, the best tyres are the ones on the left. They have a higher silica content, which makes them faster to warm up and better in the wet, they’ll hold the road better and wear better too.

On the far left is the Michelin Road 5 which is a very popular tyre for all bikes, not just Adventure bikes, because it’s such a good all-conditions tyre and brilliant in the wet. The tyres on the right will have the highest wear and therefore will return the least mileage on tarmac.

For off-road adventures, all the tyres pictured above will work on light, dry trails and it’s the rider who will make the difference here. If you’re riding a fair amount on trails or gravel roads, through all conditions, then the tyres in the middle are great options. They’re not bad on the road either, they’re just not the best choice.

If you’re planning on getting muddy, getting lost and generally trying to go places you shouldn’t then the tyres on the right, which are off-road biased, are the ones to fit.

Examples of popular Adventure bike tyres and their Road / Off-Road bias

Michelin Anakee Adventure: 80% Road, 20% Off Road

Continental Trail Attack 3: 90% Road, 10% Off Road

Bridgestone A41: 90% Road, 10% Off Road

Kenda K784 Big Block: 15% Road, 85% Off Road

Metzeler Karoo Street: 75% Road, 25% Off Road

Anlas Winter Grip Plus: 85% Road, 15% Off Road

Do I need knobbly tyres?

Proper knobbly tyres, like the ones we’ve pictured above, are designed for loose surfaces and they’re not a great road option.

On display are some of the gnarliest options from the main players when it comes to off-road rubber. From left to right, you have the Continental TKC80, Michelin Anakee Wild, Kenda K784 ‘Big Block’, Anlas Capra X and the Anlas Winter Grip Plus.

All the tyres pictured here are M&S rated, which means they’re designed for Mud & Snow, which is a legal requirement for tyres in some countries, like Germany for example but not here in the UK.

Here in the UK, we’re not that big on ‘winter tyres’ for cars, let alone bikes, so these aren’t a hugely popular choice. However if you are commuting on your Adventure-bike through winter, especially if there’s slush or snow on the ground, the Winter Grip Plus – pictured on the far right – is a great option. But for ‘normal’ winter conditions, where it’s cold and wet, a road-focused tyre like a Michelin Road 5 or a Metzeler Roadtec 01 is a better bet than all of the above.

Knobblies look cool. So why wouldn’t you fit them for road riding?

Knobblies will wear far faster than a road tyre, the bike won’t handle as well, nor have as much grip. The tread blocks are so tall they flex when in contact with the road, which gives the bike a feeling like it’s wandering, even in a straight line.

Even though they look like they could handle wet roads, knobbly tyres aren’t that good in the wet either. They create a lot of road noise at speed and they’re not as comfortable as a road tyre.

Despite all this, some riders fit them because they love the look – and that’s fine but we don’t advise you fit knobblies if you’re not heading seriously off-road.

But, do you know what? If you don’t care about wear, ride quality or outright grip and you want your Adventure bike to look rock hard, then stick a set of Michelin Anakee Wilds on, get out there and enjoy yourself.

Motorcycle tyre load index

The tyre’s load index is a code that is stamped on the rim of every tyre. It corresponds to the maximum weight a single tyre can support. Therefore you should combined the load rating of both tyres and ensure it covers the gross single axle load of your vehicle. To determine your load index, locate the number on your tyre’s sidewall and compare it with the table below. There are over 80 different motorcycle load index ratings, and we have listed a sample to give you an idea.

Load Index/ Weight (kg)

20 / 80
30 / 106
40/ 136
50 / 190
60 / 250
70 / 335
80 / 450
120 / 1400

Motorcycle tyre Speed Ratings

The tyre Speed Rating (sometimes referred to as the Speed Symbol) indicates the maximum speed at which the tyre can carry the load indicated on it’s Load Index. These speeds apply to tyres that are in good condition and are inflated to the correct pressure and fitted to the correctly sized rim.

The speed stated is the maximum speed the tyre is capable of and not a cruising speed.

Adventure bike tyres tend to have a speed rating of VR but the road-focused tyres will have a speed rating of ZR.

Speed Symbol / Max Speed (mph)

L / 75
P / 93
S / 112
T / 118
H / 130
V / 149
(V) / > 149 @ 85% of the load rating
W / 169
(W) / > 161 @ 85% of the load rating
ZR / 149

What are the best adventure tyres for wet roads?

It’s a common misconception that knobbly tyres are good in the wet. They’re good on loose surfaces as they can break through the top layer of mud or gravel and dig into the firm ground underneath, giving you traction.

However on tarmac, knobbly tyres can’t shift water like a good road tyre can. The tread blocks of a knobbly tyre act in a similar way to a slick tyre on wet tarmac. The edges of the tread block cut through the water to some extent but the flat bit of rubber on the road will lose traction and as anyone who has ridden on knobbly tyres on wet tarmac can tell you, the bike will wriggle around.

The grooves in a a road-focused tyre are designed to ‘pick up’ the water and channel it away from the tyre, which means the following rubber can get a better contact patch with the road. Tread blocks and water removal don’t go hand-in-hand, so the more knobbly-looking the tyre, the lower its ability to channel water away.

Pretty much all of the manufacturers premium ‘road’ adventure tyres offer excellent wet weather performance but if you like to really push on when things get torrential we’d go for one out of these: and in no particular order Metzeler’s Roadtec 01, Michelin’s Road 5 Trail or Continental’s Road Attack 3.

 

How long should my adventure tyres last?

This all depends on the type of tyre. A more road-orientated tyre will last longer on the tarmac.

A Michelin Road 5, for instance, tends to get between 4000 and 7000 miles, depending on the bike, the rider and where it’s being used. Long motorway miles actually tend to see a better tyre life as there’s less force working the tyre. At the other end of the scale, if you run Continental TKC80 tyres predominantly on the tarmac, you’d be lucky if that tyre survived 1500 miles.

Riding on gravel tracks and trail roads, a typical adventure tyre like a Bridgestone AX41 or Metzeler Karoo 3 ought to last well over 1,500 miles – and 1,500 miles of trail riding is a long way!

What pressures should I run my adventure tyres at?

We always recommend what the tyre manufacturer states. Most of the big Adventure bikes run 36psi front and 42psi rear for road. When riding off-road we recommend dropping the pressure a bit to help spread the load and give better traction. However tyres like the Metzeler Karoo 3, Michelin Anakee Wild and Pirelli Scorpion Rally are a new generation of Adventure tyre and you really don’t need you to drop the pressures while riding off-road.

The general idea with lower pressures is that you drop them in line with how soft the terrain is. But don’t go so low that you get pinch flats or damage the rims. I wouldn’t go any lower than 18psi rear and 20psi front on the big Adventure bikes out there.

Can I repair a puncture in my Adventure bike’s tyres?

This depends on a few factors: Where the puncture is, the angle the nail/screw has gone in at and the diameter of it. If these factors are all OK the answer is normally yes it can be permanently repaired. However we don’t repair punctures in the front tyre, as a failure here can be fatal. Fortunately more than 95% of the punctures we see are to the rear tyre, which can often be repaired. This rear puncture bias is due to the fact the front tyre tends to fling the offending item into your back tyre.

Every Adventure motorcycle tyre you can buy

We’ve put together this list of all the tyres you can buy in the UK that are either designed specifically for Adventure bikes or available in Adventure bike wheel sizes.

SPORTS / GETTING IT RIGHT OVER

If you want the stickiest rubber on your GS for fast road riding or for trackdays (we’ve had a few customers fit them), then you have two great choices of tyre that wouldn’t look out of place on a 200bhp Superbike. They’re not a common choice – because most GS riders don’t buy the bike for its apex-hunting ability – but they are both brilliant tyres that will give you the maximum outright grip on the road, or indeed track, when conditions allow.

Dunlop Sportsmart TT

This one from Dunlop is the closest thing to a slick you’ll get to fit on your GS. Using Dunlop’s NTEC technology allows these beauties to have the pressure dropped significantly on track creating a huge foot print and unbelievable grip. If 19″ tyre warmers were available for the front you wouldn’t need them as these heat up really quick and Dunlop suggests you don’t need to use them on this tyre.

Metzeler M9RR

The replacement for the much-loved M7RR, the M9RR is a sports tyre that’s more than good enough for fast group trackday pace. Its 100% silica compound gives it a very fast warm up in cold and wet conditions and even though it’s a sporty tyre, it’s also a great tyre in the wet.

 


TOURING / HIGH MILEAGE

If you’re heading off on a European adventure or if you’re commuting or clocking up motorway miles, a modern Touring tyre is the answer. They’re give you great handling, due to the fact the majority are dual compound, with a hard-wearing central belt and softer shoulders for more edge grip. They’re also excellent in the wet and offer a fast warm up in all conditions.

Anlas Winter Grip +

The Anlas Winter Grip + is quite possibly the best all round motorcycle winter tyre available. A very stable and predictable M+S rated tyre it’s also made in sizes suitable for both street and adventure bikes. This one is a great choice if you need a pair in the Autumn.

Bridgestone T31

The T31 made it’s predecessor (the T30 EVO) feel very outdated. This tyre has great mileage, superb wet weather performance and incredible sports bike tyre handling.

Avon Spirit ST

The Spirit ST is a high performance Sports Touring tyre from British firm Avon. Using a high silica content and a tread pattern that disperses water superbly, these are made for the UK’s unpredictable weather.

Pirelli Angel GT2

Pirelli’s latest touring tyre, takes over from where the popular Angel GT left off. A dual compound rear, with softer shoulders for more edge grip but a harder central compound for maximum mileage. Borrows from Pirelli’s track rain tyre tread pattern for better wet-weather grip.

Metzeler Roadtec 01

MCN’s tyre of the year in 2016 and 2017. A new generation of tyre that can do it all, the Roadtec 01 is one of those tyres that’s at home on pretty much any bike, from superbikes to tourers. It is a fantastic road tyre, thanks to it quick warm-up and long life.

Continental Road Attack 3

The Conti Road Attack 3 replaced the Conti Road Attack 2. This one won Motorrad’s sports touring tyre test against five of the other leading brands. It uses their TractionSkin technology which allows the tyre not to need a release agent in production and allowing a very quick run in period.

Michelin Road 5 Trail

The Road 5 but in Trail bike sizes. Michelin’s most popular road tyre is an excellent choice for Adventure bikers who rarely stray off the black stuff. They don’t have that knobbly adventure-ready look but they do have bags of grip, wet weather performance and durability.

Michelin Road 4 Trail

All the great qualities of the Pilot Road 4 but made in the sizes suitable for the big Adventure bikes. Excellent mileage and wet weather grip make this one a winner. Replaced by the Road 5 Trail in 2018.

Dunlop Roadsmart 3

Released in 2016 the Dunlop Roadsmart 3 has become very popular over the last few years. It replaced the Roadsmart 2, it offers class leading agility, wet weather performance and a claimed 44% increase in mileage over it’s predecessor.


ADVENTURE / I LIKE THE OFF-ROAD LOOK

Anlas Capra R

The Anlas Capra R is the ‘does it all’ choice sitting between the Capra RD and the Capra X. It can handle tarmac and unpaved equally well. A very well priced Adventure spec tyre in sizes suitable for the smaller capacity bikes as well as the big continent crunchers.

Avon Trailrider AV53 + AV54

Avon’s Trailrider, an 85% road and 15% off-road based tyre. Lot’s of silica for the wet and M+S rated for the winter. These are the replacement for the Avon Gripster.

Bridgestone A40

The Bridgestone A40 replaced the Battlewing BW510 & BW502, it’s design was more road based than the Battlewing. A good value for money option on Adventure bikes but now superceded by the A41.

Bridgestone A41

New for 2018 the Bridgestone A41 replaced the A40. With a huge choice of sizes and OE fitments available in sizes suitable for bikes as diverse as the 3 wheeled Yamaha Niken to Ducati’s Scrambler with its unusual 18″ front fitment along with all the common Adventure sizes. A great road/trail tyre.

Continental Trail Attack 3

Continental’s Trail Attack 3 replaced the popular Trail Attack 2. A tyre made for the tarmac but also capable of a little bit of dry off road action. Lot’s of choice in the sizes available including ones to fit 17″ wheeled bikes.

Continental Trail Attack 2

The Continental Trail Attack 2 is a great value for money Adventure touring tyre. Replaced now by the Trail Attack 3. Extremely quick scrub in due to Continentals innovative Traction skin technology.

Dunlop Trailsmart Max

Now replaced by the Trailmax Meridian, the Trailsmart Max was the second version of the original Trailsmart. Dunlop stated it a 90% road 10% off road tyre but lot’s of owners have praised it’s off road capabilities and even going as far as saying it’s a more 80% road 20% off road tyre.

Dunlop Trailmax Meridian

The Trailmax Meridian was released in 2020 as the replacement for the Trailsmart Max. It has a very unusual tread design named the ‘ice axe’ which gives it a 10% off road and 90% road bias. Initial reports are a nice turning tyre with very stable handling.

Dunlop Mutant Hybrid

The new for 2020 Mutant, like a love child from the meeting of a Race Wet, Supermoto and dirt track tyre. A great choice if you want to attempt to get your knee down in the wet on your R1 at your local roundabout.

Metzeler Tourance

The Tourance must surely be called a ‘classic’ after all this time. Some would say the original Adventure tyre. A 70% road 30% off road tread design these are still incredible popular with the GS guys and girls out there.

Metzeler Tourance Next

The Tourance Next was the replacement for the Tourance EXP which superseded the classic original Tourance. These have never had the appeal of the original, we think partly because of the more road oriented tread pattern.

Metzeler Karoo Street

A good choice if you do a little bit of dry green laning, the Karoo Street is so much better on road than the more blocky deeper treaded alternatives whilst also looking the part.

Michelin Anakee Adventure

The Anakee Adventure was released in 2019 to replace the Anakee 3. A more off road looking tyre then the Anakee 3, still retaining superb tarmac grip due to it’s high silica content and 2CT dual compounds on the rear tyre. This one will make your Adventure bike look and also feel the part.

Michelin Anakee 3

Original fitment of the BMW R1200GS the Michelin Anakee 3 replaced the Anakee 2. Very interesting tread design using beveled edges and 3D serrations which help with both dry tarmac use and mud clearance when off road.

Pirelli Scorpion Trail 2

Replacing the original Scorpion in 2015 the Pirelli Scorpion Trail 2 comes with dual compound rear giving great mileage. Nice steering and turn in make this a good choice if you enjoy ‘getting it over’. BMW, KTM and Ducati all have bikes using this one as an original fitment.


ADVENTURE / I RIDE THE ODD TRAIL ON THE WEEKEND

 

Avon Trekrider AV84 + AV85

The Trekrider is Avon’s 50/50 road/offroad tyre, like a Range Rover equally as good in the mud as on the tarmac. These are M+S rated if you ever find yourself in Germany and it’s starting to snow.

Continental TKC70

If you need a tyre capable of a bit of mud bashing and tarmac mile munching the TKC70 could be the one for you. 70% street and 30% off road bias this could be the perfect choice for your R1250GS.

Continental TKC70 Rocks (Rear tyre only)

New for 2020 the TKC70 Rocks comes in a rear fitment only for now, designed with improved off-road capabilities without sacrificing on road grip over the original TKC70 rear. Mix it with a TKC 80 front if mud is your thing!

Bridgestone AX41S

Do you want your bike to look like a flat tracker or classic Scrambler? If the answer is yes the Bridgestone AX41S is what you need. With sizes to fit Suzuki’s tiny Van Van up to BMW’s latest R1250GS. Fantastic wet weather performance and excellent mileage due to the rears 3LC dual compounds.

Pirelli Scorpion Rally STR

Used by Ducati as original equipment on it’s Desert Sled. The Pirelli Rally STR is great going from upright to right over. There is a bit of block movement but not a massive amount, a very good tyre if you like the look of knobblies but also enjoy riding hard on the tarmac.


OFF-ROAD / I’M GENUINELY GOING TO GET LOST

Anlas Capra X

The Capra X is real Adventure Bike tyre, capable of the most extreme off-road routes. Mileage is very good for such a blocky tyre, we’ve heard users on big GS’s get around 5k on the rear and a little more on the front with mixed usage.

Bridgestone AX41

The AX41 is Bridgestone’s Adventure off-road tyre. Suitable for even the muddiest conditions and having excellent block rigidity which is what you want when riding on the tarmac to get to the mud! Lot’s of sizes available suitable to fit 50cc bikes up to the 1260cc beast that is the Ducati Multistrada Enduro.

Heidenau K60 Scout

A Mud & Snow rated Adventure bike tyre, that curiously features a different tread pattern depending on the tyre size and profile. A tubeless fitment, it’s a good option for road-riding Adventure bikers who like the rugged off-road look.

Kenda K784 Big Block

The K784 Big Block is designed to take you to the places you didn’t think possible on a motorbike. This one is a great alternative to the more well known and costlier mud movers.

Metzeler Karoo 3

One of the most popular Adventure bike tyres, the Karoo 3 is used by the BMW Off-Road school and is a popular choice for Adventure bike riders who like to take on the odd trail or green lane.

Michelin Anakee Wild

The knobbliest Michelins you’ll get this side of a Dakar bike, the Anakee Wild is the next step up from the Anakee Adventure and has deep tread blocks. It’s a tyre with a huge off-road bias and not a recommended fit for road riding. Available in tubed and tubeless sizes and they’re Mud & Snow rated.

 


Adventure Motorcycle Tyre FAQs

Do knobbly tyres need scrubbing in?
Yes. All tyres need scrubbing in but it’s the bedding in that’s equally as important. Recommendations vary from manufacturer to manufacturer and tyre shop to tyre shop.

Some industry guidelines state you should ride 200 miles on a new tyre but we don’t think that’s practical. Which is why we recommend you ride at least 10 miles on your new tyres as if it were raining. That means gentle throttle inputs, no harsh braking and minimum lean angles.

This gives the tyre time to seat on the rim and for the tyre’s carcass to bed in. Of course, the outer surface of the tyre matters too, which is why 10 miles of gentle riding is a good target for any new rubber as it will rough up the surface and at the same time ‘clean’ off any chemicals used in the release agent or the soap used to get the tyre on the rim during the fitting process.

Are Off-Road tyres road legal?
In most cases they aren’t but it will state on the tyre whether they are. For big adventure bikes, this won’t be an issue, as the vast majority of tyres made in larger sizes are road legal. However some motocross and enduro tyres will fit on smaller dual-sport and trail bikes and so it is important to check that your tyre is road legal. It’s worth remembering that green lanes and byways are classed the same as roads and so your bike must be road-legal, taxed, have a valid MOT and be insured. If you fit motocross tyres to your green-laner, you might end up in hot water.

Does my adventure bike have tubed or tubeless tyres?

If you have cast wheels you can use tubeless (TL) tyres. Spoked wheels normally use tube type (TT) tyres.  Exceptions are BMW’s big GS wheels which have the spoke nipples running to the outside edge of the rim (a fantastic bit of engineering). The other tubeless spoked rims are fitted on the higher end KTM’s which use a rubber gasket which covers the top of the spokes creating an air tight seal. Care must be taken when fitting tyres to these rims as it’s possible to damage this gasket with your tyre levers and then spend hours working out why it’s slowly deflating!

Can I use Risemousse on my adventure bike tyres?

If you ride on the tarmac no! mousses are designed to run at really low pressures which will heat up incredibly quickly and then fall apart. You’ll also find no mousses available in the correct sizes at the time of writing.

Can I repair an inner tube?
Yes you can but we advise you to change the inner tube and not repair it. The trouble with a repair is that it won’t be as strong and failures are common. With all the hassle involved in removing the tyre to repair the tube, you might as well stick a new one in there. Just make sure you check the inner surface of the tyre for anything that might have punctured through the tyre and the tube in the first instance. Then remove any debris before you fit your new tube.

When I change my tyre should I replace the inner tube?
Yes, it’s a good idea to change your inner tube at the same time, even if it looks in good condition. Inner tubes will perish over time and they’re especially susceptible around the valve. The cost of a new inner tube versus the hassle and cost of removing the tyre again to fix or replace the inner tube means it’s a sensible idea to change it when you change your tyre. Your tyre shop will be able to advise you of the condition of your inner tub when you change your tyres.
