Mitas is adding junior motorcycle tires to its extreme enduro range

Kranj, 5th November 2020 – Mitas, part of the Trelleborg Group, is adding junior motorcycle tires to its extreme enduro range, with new sizes designed for motorcycles from 50cc to 85cc engine displacement.

Gustavo Pinto Teixeira, Vice President Two Wheels and Specialty Tires, explains: “We have always been at the forefront of extreme enduro and we’re the first manufacturer to add junior sizes to this type of tire range. For the first time, young riders will have a chance to use tires designed for extreme enduro from the beginning of their racing careers. I’m convinced that this addition will help many young talents grow to become successful riders.” 

The development of these sizes was possible thanks to the knowledge Mitas has acquired over decades combined with constant field testing with numerous top riders in extreme enduro. Mitas test rider Tristan Hedgcock from South Africa, says: “What really impressed me the most is the versatility of the tire across all terrains. From mud to rock and forest, junior hard enduro riders from around the world now have the tire to take them wherever they want.”

Mitas extreme enduro junior tires ensure incredible grip and stability in all conditions the rider can face in extreme enduro. Due to their excellent handling characteristics and grip, they can be used from novice to competitive riders.
