New Dunlop Geomax MX53 announced
Ficeda have introduced Dunlop’s next generation intermediate-to-hard terrain off-road MX tyre – the Geomax MX53. Designed to offer more performance in a wider variety of terrains, the MX53 excels on hard-packed tracks while also offering greater versatility in intermediate riding conditions.
With upgraded technology, the Dunlop MX53 aims to offer riders more versatility with better performance. This is in part due to the all-new tread pattern on both the front and rear tyres. A revolutionary horseshoe shaped cluster of knobs has been added to the front tyre. This acts as a giant claw to dig into the ground and give the rider improved traction on hard-packed terrain and maximizes braking grip.
The Geomax MX53 now also features Dunlop’s patented ‘Progressive Cornering Block’ technology on the front tyre. This technology, commonly known as Block-In-A-Block, allows enhanced flex on each knob resulting in ultimate grip and even more biting edges.
This bold new pattern of blocks have a hollowed-out portion on the center tread, resulting in less stiffness in the center of the tyre, giving riders better feedback and more compliance. Paired with a taller profile, this new MX53 front tyre provides gentler handling, more traction, higher lean angles and better maneuverability when compared to its predecessor.
Dunlop’s patented Block-In-A-Block technology on the rear tyre borrows from the success of the upgrades in technology added to the Geomax MX33, Dunlop’s soft-to-intermediate tyre. Incorporating these block designs that have already proven successful now give the MX53 more biting edges, increased grip and enhanced flex on each individual knob. These elements all contribute to enhance durability and performance in harder terrains.
The compound that was chosen for the MX53 tyres has a high number of molecular polymer particles. This results in a higher fracture strength, meaning more durability. Dunlop has also added more fine carbon particles. The carbon particles are what give the Geomax tyres their legendary grip. More durability, more grip. What more could you ask for?
The MX53 lineup is now shipping and will be available at all off-road dealerships by the end of the month. Pre-order from your local dealer now: www.ficeda.com.au/dealerlocator (link)
