Choosing the right tyre:
Determine the overall track conditions including the starting line.
- If the conditions vary from hard-packed to loose loam, you’ll likely want a versatile tyre like Dunlop’s MX3S.
- For medium-hard terrain, the MX52 is your best choice.
- For deep sand or mud, Dunlop’s MX11 is the tyre of choice – the MX11 rear and MX3S front are a popular combination for many pro riders on sandy tracks.
- If the ground has a cushion to it, rutted with soft berms, you’ll need the MX3S that will penetrate through the loose soil.
- Let the dominant condition dictate your choice after considering the start section.
- Don’t be afraid to mix off-road tyre patterns front and rear to feel more comfortable.
