Mitas is launching all-new motocross competition tires TERRA FORCE-MX

Kranj, 26 March 2019 – Mitas, part of the Trelleborg Group, is launching the completely new Mitas TERRA FORCE-MX motocross competition line. The complete line will be available from April 2019.

“Mitas TERRA FORCE-MX line is intended for both professional and amateur riders seeking high performance. It replaces the previous motocross competition range and was developed in cooperation with many professional motocross riders on different tracks and various types of terrain. The new line is offered with three different tread patterns: TERRA FORCE-MX SAND, TERRA FORCE-MX SM and TERRA FORCE-MX MH to meet the requirements of all riders and terrain types,” explains Ksenija Bitenc, director of the Mitas Motorcycle Tires division.
The new motocross competition line shows the dedication of Mitas to motocross racing. This has grown over the past years through the partnership with MXGP (FIM Motocross World Championship) and cooperation with many motocross teams and riders.

TERRA FORCE-MX SAND
Motocross tires for sandy and extra soft terrain.
The rear tire has a semi-paddle construction with wide row spacing which ensure maximum cleaning. Large center lugs provide traction and the layout of the side lugs ensure outstanding cornering, while the outer block profiles bring superior traction.
The front tire features a scooped center tread pattern that acts like a paddle to evacuate sand and deliver traction. A sharp paddle design with a reinforced shoulder supports hard landing after jumping with sharp knobs in the central part that guarantee extended tread life. The compound features high hardness and does not soften during racing.

TERRA FORCE-MX SM
Motocross tires for soft to medium terrain (SM – Soft/Medium).
These tires feature a tapered knob design that chisels its way through the soft ground for traction. The high well-spaced knobs are tied at the base for reinforcement to give a longer life. The compound is softer than used on the SAND version.

TERRA FORCE-MX MH
Motocross tires for medium to hard terrain (MH – Medium/Hard).
The rear tire knobs offer maximum traction on all terrain applications with surface area and a new tread compound ensuring a balance between stiffness, reliability and long-lasting performance.
The tread pattern and broad spacing between the central knobs provides maximum traction, even in changing terrain conditions, giving maximum speed and control. The front tire knobs have an arrow-like layout and the side knobs deliver directional accuracy. Grip on harder terrain is mainly achieved by the type of tread figures and higher filling of the contact surface. The compound is softer than used on the SM version.
