Dunlop Announces All-New ‘Trailmax Raid’ 50/50 Adventure Tire

The latest offering in the adventure range inspired by the classic D908 RR knobbies.

Published on 02.15.2023

Dunlop has just announced the release of the Trailmax Raid — an all-new dual sport tire the company has developed for 50% on-road and 50% off-road use. The new offering is the latest addition to Dunlop’s Adventure range, sitting alongside the popular Trailmax Mission.

According to Dunlop, the new 50/50 Trailmax Raid tire is suitable for a wide range of motorcycles from mid-size dual sports to large adventure bikes, offering off-road ability and predictability paired with great wet weather capability and long-distance touring performance. “Trailmax Raid gives riders particularly reassuring performance on wet roads, unlocking even more versatility than they might expect from a tire that also delivers excellent off-road braking and traction,” says the tire manufacturer.

How much will the new tires differentiate from the Trailmax Missions all-around performance and longevity remains to be seen, but Dunlop says the Trailmax Raid is designed specifically for riders who demand more regular off-road performance.

Accordingly, the Raid’s design was inspired by Dunlop’s D908 RR, an off-road focused tire characterized by the pronounced blocks on its tread, which are now a key part of the Raid’s profile. 

“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 tire that exceeds for a wide range of bikes in varied conditions.” – Luca Davide Andreoni, Marketing Manager, Dunlop Motorcycle Europe.

So far, Dunlop has not announced plans to make the new tires available in North America. We’ll give an update as more details are released. Stay tuned!

I hope they come to N. America as they look like a good option to the excellent Bridgestone AX41 Adventurecross.

Intriguing! Here’s hoping the sidewalls are less stiff than the Trailmax Mission…

I’d try these. I’m also considering new Karoo 4’s. Heard anything good about these?
