MOTOZ TRACTIONATOR DESERT H/T TYRE
Designed to handle fast rocky fire trails, desert hard pack and sand the Motoz Tractionator® Desert H/Ts unique tread design is also surprisingly capable on looser, sloppier, off-camber ground.
Tractionator® Desert H/Ts were originally designed for Rally/Race use and as a result of their success in the infamously hot, fast and hard Australian Rally scene have become somewhat legendary over the last 5 years.
However, excelling in high speed cornering, engine braking into fast corners and multiday races (where long tyre wear is essential) it wasn't long before the cross-over into adventure use began. The surprise came when reviews started to talk positively about the tyres performance through heavily rooted loose climbs and mud...surely Desert Race tyres weren't supposed to be able do this?
The Desert H/Ts are no extreme enduro tyre, but they are super tough, well respected, long lived Rally/Race tyres that are surprisingly capable in a wider range of non-desert conditions. The perfect hard-core adventure/trail tyre? Maybe!
Unfortunately, as with all great things they do have a dark side. Keep the pressures low and ideally keep the Desert H/T front tyre away from wet tarmac...but, perhaps consider the rear as a solid 85/15 super-tough long-lasting off-road trail tyre.
Adventure Spec Recommenation: Why not try mixing the Tractionator® Desert H/T rear with a Tractionator® Enduro S/T front, a long lasting combination designed for variable conditions days on the UK trails (with a bit of wet tarmac thrown in...!)
