Dunlop launches new Trailmax Raid 50/50 trail tyre

A new 50/50 trail tyre has been launched by Dunlop in the form of the Trailmax Raid, offering more off-road capabilities than Dunlop's other trail tyres.

Dunlop Trailmax Raid

Dunlop has launched its newest 50/50 trail motorcycle tyre, the Trailmax Raid, which is derived from Dunlop’s rally raid programme. 

Dunlop’s newest trail tyre, the Trailmax Raid, combines Dunlop’s touring, adventure, and off-road experience and knowledge to create a tyre which is comfortable both on asphalt and gravel. 

The tyre itself is derived from Dunlop’s D908 RR, which is one of Dunlop’s rally raid tyres and is characterised by blocks in the tread, which are now also found in the profile of the Trailmax Raid. 

Compared to the Trailmax Meridian, which launched three years ago and which now sits alongside the Trailmax Raid in Dunlop’s trail range, Dunlop says the Raid “is designed specifically for riders who demand more regular off-road performance.”

The Dunlop Trailmax Raid will be available in three front sizes, covering 19- and 21-inch wheel sizes, and in six rear sizes, covering 17- and 18-inch wheel sizes. Initial sizes will be available from 1 March 2023, with the remainder arriving by the second quarter of this year.

Luca Davide Andreoni, Marketing Manager, Dunlop Motorcycle Europe, said: “We are excited to launch Trailmax Raid, which further strengthens our trail offering. By combining our expertise and technologies from the off-road, adventure touring and sports touring segments, we have created a true 50/50 tyre that exceeds for a wide range of bikes in varied conditions. 

“Furthermore, Trailmax Raid gives riders particularly reassuring performance on wet roads, unlocking even more versatility than they might expect from a tyre that also delivers excellent off-road braking and traction.”
