Heidenau K60 Ranger Tires

These tires are designed to be a more off-road focused (70/30) version of the wildly popular K60 Scout tires.

Features:

  • Primarily off-road dual sport / adventure tire (70% off-road / 30% on-road)
  • Open tread profile provides enhanced traction and self-cleaning on loose surfaces
  • Alternating edge tread ensures even power transmission and enhanced sideways climbing performance (for example- ruts and single track)
  • Support features within the tire walls provide long lasting stable driving behavior, independent of surface conditions
  • Optimized tire contour for off-road riding
  • Reinforced carcass with high puncture resistance
  • High level of tread stability off-road and excellent grip on wet asphalt thanks to an entirely new compound / carcass

If you live within the GCC, contact the local distributor here for the full range of Heidenau tires.

Gas Tank PadsTank pads offer paint protection from the inside of your riding pants rubbing against the tank. Simultaneously, they offer a bit of grip for us to hold onto over rocky and bumpy trails. I have tried a few different brands over the years with success.
