Dunlop Trailmax TR91 review

MCN's Michael Neeves travelled to France last week to test the latest Dunlop Trailmax adventure tyres. Here are his findings...

Dunlop Trailmax TR91

Designed for: Sport touring and trail riding.

What’s its USP? It’s designed for adventure machines, from the BMW R1200GS to the Yamaha XT660Z Tenere.

Riding impressions: If you’ve got a dual purpose trail bike and you ride only on the road, you’re best of with a conventional road-going sports touring tyre for the best grip and stability.

If you plan to go off-road too, you’ll need dual purpose tyres like these with bigger tread blocks.

Dunlop’s new Trailmax TR91 has a new tread pattern, construction and compound, the latter of which has added Silica for improved wet-weather grip.

We got to test them at their launch in cold, but dry conditions, and they performed excellently with good cornering grip and stability at full lean and in a straight line, although we didn’t get to try them against the competition.

Dunlop claim improved wet weather grip, off-road grip and improved mileage, but we weren’t able to test this.

Sizes: 110/80 x 19, 100/90 x 19, 90/90 x 21, 150/70 x 17, 140/80 x 17, 130/80 x 17

Rivals: Michelin Anakee, Metzeler Tourance EXP, Pirelli Scorpion, Bridgestone Trailwing, Avon Distanzia

Cost: £172 (per pair), Inc VAT, fitted on to loose wheels. FWR tyres (www.fwr.co.uk)
Verdict: Very capable dual-purpose road rubber.
