Dunlop Introduces K950 Street-Legal Trials Tire

DOT-approved trials tire offers maximum grip for rugged dual sport riding.

Published on 04.06.2021

Dunlop Motorcycle Tires has expanded its off-road tire line to include a new DOT-approved trials tire — the K950. Trials tires have long been popular among dual sport riders who want maximum traction on challenging off-road terrain. This tire uses a tight block pattern that clings to the contours of rocks and other obstacles, giving riders a significant boost in grip.

Dunlop states the K950 was engineered to excel on hard-packed, rocky, or tree root-littered trails, in both wet and dry conditions. It was also designed with the durability to handle asphalt and be completely street legal, “while delivering a high level of performance off-road that riders are looking for.” 

The trials tire features bias-ply construction, along with a tread pattern and sticky rubber compound designed to tackle tough single-track terrain and other challenging conditions. “For dual-sport riding, the K950 provides a smoother ride and longer wear than a traditional knobby tire on the street, while offering a high level of grip and bump-absorbing compliance in the dirt,” explains the tire manufacturer


The K950 joins the competition-only D803GP trials tire in Dunlop’s lineup. Look for them coming soon to your local dealer, available as a rear tire only size 4.00-18. Pricing is TBD. For more details, visit the Dunlop website.
