Using input from top AMA Pro Supercross and Motocross racers throughout the 2011, 2012 and 2013 racing seasons, Dunlop has developed the all-new Geomax® MX32™ and MX52™ motocross tyres.

“Developed by the top tier of SX and MX athletes including Ryan Villopoto, Chad Reed, James Stewart, Ken Roczen and Justin Barcia, these new Geomax models began life as top Pro tyres and have now been developed into tyres Dunlop can offer to the racing and riding public.”

The MX32 covers soft-to-intermediate terrain while the MX52 excels in intermediate-to-hard terrain conditions.

These two tyres replace the MX31, MX51 and MX71 in Dunlop’s Geomax lineup, yet they cover a significantly greater range of terrain types than the three tyres covered before thanks to revolutionary new technology.

  • Geomax 32 – RRP $89.95 – $119.95
  • Geomax 52 – RRP $99.95 – $119.95

GEOMAX MX52 KEY FEATURES

  • Derived from top-level AMA Supercross and Motocross racing
  • New Dunlop-patented block-within-a-block knobs offer more progressive cornering action
  • Enhanced handling and knob durability via more flex, and less knob tearing through recess carcass design
  • Superior bump absorption through new damping control sidewall rubber compound and recess carcass design
  • Directional front tire design provides enhanced grip and steering feel
  • Superior grip in a wider variety of terrain

REAR GEOMAX MX52 TECHNOLOGY

  • Progressive Cornering Block Technology (PCBT): A Dunlop-patented block-within-a-block design that offers more progressive cornering action and aids in slide control.
  • Enhanced Carcass Tension Control System (CTCS): Tuned carcass flexibility from recesses placed strategically along the tire carcass to help smooth ride characteristics and allow the bike to follow a line more accurately.
  • Controlled-rebound Rubber Element in the Sidewall: This construction helps to damp out bounce, acting as a suspension component within the tire, so the tire can better follow the track surface.
  • Staggered Distribution of Center Blocks: Spreads the load on the tire and helps with impact damping and stability, especially in whoops and hard-pack conditions.

FRONT GEOMAX MX52 TECHNOLOGY

  • New Directional Tread Pattern: Offers great traction and steering feel for a wide range of riders who have differing riding styles.
  • Enhanced Carcass Tension Control System (CTCS): Tuned carcass flexibility offers enhanced feel and steering accuracy.
  • Unique Tread Block Distribution: Knob design, pattern and knob construction are optimized to work in one direction, which provides advantages in feel and traction.

  • Multiple Block Distribution: By varying the pitches and angles of the tire blocks, fewer blocks are needed in the center area, and this enhances contact feel.
  • Elimination of Tie-bar Design: Because the MX32 is intended for use in soft-to-intermediate terrain, the tie bars have been eliminated to reduce the resistance toward bending within blocks. This enhances contact feel and performance in sandy and muddy conditions.

  • Enhanced Carcass Tension Control System (CTCS): Tuned carcass flexibility offers enhanced feel and steering accuracy.
  • Staggered Middle Blocks: Alternating mid-shoulder knobs in the MX32 have been angled differently and are sized differently to add side grip and promote light, responsive steering while being less prone to grabbing in ruts.
  • Elimination of tie-bar design: The tie bars have been eliminated to reduce the resistance toward bending within blocks. This enhances steering feel and promotes stability in muddy conditions.
  • Chiseled Shoulder Block: Derived from the MX31, this chiseled block shape penetrates the surface to enhance side grip.
  • Knob Placement: Newly improved knob placement and angling reduces knob stress.

The front MX32 and MX52 feature new directional tread patterns in both fronts that incorporate a series of unique block designs for optimal performance. The main objective is to provide great traction along with optimal steering feel for a wide range of riders who have differing riding styles. A directional front tire can accomplish this by focusing on a more idealized knob pattern, knob distribution, knob construction and knob shape—a total package that produces heightened feel for the rider. With optimized block distribution, new block designs and carcass innovations, the all-new Geomax MX32 and MX52 offer weekend riders the kind of performance top AMA Pros used to win races and championships in 2013. Riding on the MX32 and MX52 is like having a factory advantage in your corner.

The MX52 rear tire features rows of center blocks with a slight stagger. This offset spreads the load on the tire and helps with impact damping and stability, especially in whoops and hard-pack conditions. Now, the tread pattern has the ability to flex for compliance over various surfaces, which allows the tire to deal more effectively within a wider range of terrain.  To excel in soft-terrain application, the MX32 rear features a multiple-block distribution pattern, wherein the pitches and angles of the tire blocks are varied to promote traction, while using fewer blocks, which also improves contact feel, while still maintaining excellent traction. Because the MX32 is intended for use in soft-to-intermediate terrain, the tie bars Dunlop incorporates on other tires have been eliminated to reduce bending resistance within the tire blocks to improve contact feel and promote stability.

In both the MX32 and MX52 rear tires, Progressive Cornering Block (PCB) incorporates a new block-within-a-block configuration on the two flanks of the tire—a design proven to deliver more progressive cornering action and aid in slide control. The key to this new knob design/technology focuses on adding overall height to each knob at the center of this new multi-block configuration—specifically, with a taller, smaller, inner knob. The additional biting edges and the increased surface area they provide effectively increase the tire’s footprint and its ability to spread driving loads more evenly across the knob for additional traction. With block-within-a-block design, each knob damps out a portion of the force characteristics put into the tire while riding over rough terrain. The floating traits of the knobs improve stability because more of these forces are being damped out within the tire and less of these forces are transferred to the suspension and chassis. Also, when running the bike at different lean angles, the variable height of the multi-block knobs spreads the load more evenly over the surface of the knob block, especially at the edges, to produce added bite. The block-within-a-block configuration also helps improve slide control.
