Mitas extends the TERRA FORCE-R range with additional sizes for large adventure motorcycles

Kranj, 1 October 2018 – Mitas, part of the Trelleborg Group, is adding new sizes to its existing TERRA FORCE-R range. Visitors to this year’s Intermot Fair in Cologne will be able to see these new sizes, on display from 2 to 7 October 2018, in hall 6, at stand D-049.

Mitas TERRA FORCE-R 120/70ZR19 and 170/60ZR17 sizes are especially designed for large adventure motorcycles. The rear tire (170/60ZR17)   features completely new Mitas technology, named MCTT (Multi Compound Tread Technology), with different compounds—advanced elastomers, such as S-SBR, highly active fillers, and silica—on the central and shoulder parts. With MCTT, the central tread provides increased mileage, and the shoulder tread ensures superior grip at lean angles.

This different compound distribution offers riders optimal and safe riding experiences in all conditions, including optimum balanced wear rate throughout the tire’s lifetime.

The combination of TERRA FORCE-R tread design and specially developed compounds gives riders an outstanding performance, as both front and rear tires work together, in perfect harmony.

Ksenija Bitenc, Director of Motorcycle Tires and Tubes at Mitas, says: “With the addition of the TERRA FORCE-R range, we can provide more road tread design for the growing segment of large adventure motorcycles.” Being more road oriented, the new range’s tread design ensures greater riding properties on asphalt, and more confidence on light, off-road terrain.

Ksenija Bitenc, concludes: “Besides the abovementioned sizes, a new 150/70R18 size will be launched in the first quarter of 2019. With the addition of these three new sizes, the TERRA FORCE-R range will offer 11 sizes in total.”
