The Road/Sports Motorbiking tyre
This very versatile tyre is ideal for everyday driving. Thanks to the numerous little grooves, you'll have good grip and handling whatever the weather. This long-lasting tyre is made from resistant rubber. With new technologies, rubber used for road/sport motorbike tyres are effective even at low temperatures, so you're efficient right from the start.
The Competition/Circuit Tyre
Softer, minimalist and sometimes completely slick, this competition/circuit tyre warms up quickly and provides maximum grip. It can't be beaten in dry weather, but be careful if conditions deteriorate. If you're a real track biker, there's a WET version of your slick tyres that are designed for driving on wet roads.
The Enduro Tyre
This tyre is designed for 80% off-road use and will be very effective on sand, mud or over small obstacles. Some enduro tyres have a tread wide enough to improve comfort on tarmac.
The Trail Tyre
The latest trail motorbikes are now powerful and heavy. Gone are the old models with lots of studs, new trail tyres look more and more like road tyres, but are effective on trails and paths when you need them to be. They're designed for 30% off-road use, so remember to lower the pressure of your tyres by 0.5 when changing terrain.
The Custom Tyre
The custom motorcycle tyre is an integral part of the look. However, never overlook performance. Very often custom motorcycles have a very high torque and are quite heavy, so this tyre has a very strong frame. These tyres feature the latest technological developments, making them comfortable, and giving good grip. Be careful on corners with these tyres.
In recent years, modern scooters have become more and more powerful. Manufacturers have adapted by coming out with increasingly technological tyres. With soft rubber, hard rubber, dual rubber or M+S tyres, there are tyres for all types of scooters.
The soft rubber scooter tyre provides maximum grip, but will tend to wear faster than a hard rubber tyre. There are now dual rubber tyres with a harder, stronger central sections and softer shouldering for better grip. Some scooter tyres are marked "M+S", which means that the tyre is particularly effective on mud and snow.
To choose the right motocross tyre, be aware that hard rubber is better on dry and stony ground, while on wet ground, soft rubber will be more effective.
