    Coming in our next box in August -

    NEW - 110/80-19 E-07 PLUS DAKAR

    NEW - 120/70-19 E-07 PLUS DAKAR

    NEW - 170/60-17 E-07 PLUS DAKAR

    We were surprised to learn of the 120/70-19 and 170/60-17 being offered in a Dakar casing as this design was not thought to have warranted the heavier casing, but apparently real-world use deemed otherwise.

    Also, we will see the 90/90-21 and 110/80-19 in PLUS this season in standard casing. It was really just a matter of space in the container. The 100/90-19 will be last, as its the slowest selling size front we have.

    In this box is more of the new 2CT Mitas Touring Force radial in 120/70-17, 180/55-17, 190/50-17 and 190/55-17. This is a brand new design and technology for Mitas. They are very proud of this tire.

    I do not have prices for all these yet, but will after they land. We do the import, so we bare all the real-world costs. Its a bit of math to do the cost average.

    Thanks!

    I threw an E07+ on the rear of my 2018 R1200GSA last weekend and took it for a tear about int he bush, pressure on road 44psi, pressure off road 36psi, as advised by the guys at Tyres4Bikes. AMAZING. So much more grip than I'm used to, it gave me a great deal more confidence going through water, mud, puddles and even on sandy patches. I have a TKC80 up front and was running at 40psi on road, 33psi off road; this combination I was very pleased with as the bike tracked straighter and truer with much less lateral movement and oodles more grip than my previous Scorpion Trail IIs.

    If this keeps up I'll do the same again next time.

    Any update on the E-07+ / 790 Adventure R combo? I think I saw on another thread that you are running it with a TKC-80 front. Getting ready to replace the Karoo 3 on my 790R and I'm strongly considering this combo so any input is appreciated. Thanks!

    Go for it!! This is the best jack of all trade combo I have ridden so far. The mitas are good on wet tarmac, and better offroad than the Karoo's... well, to be honest.. they are better than Karoo in every way. I will be so bold to state that the Mitas E-07+ rear are just as good as the TKC80 rear, just with a lot more milage :-) I just got my second mitas e-07+ rear tire delivered.

    How many miles do you have/expect to get on the original E-07+?

    I only done 2000km and there is no sign of wear... I guy I know just past his 5000km mark with 6mm tread left. So how long they will last, have no ide. Hope to see something between 8000km to 10.000km with them (than I'm happy) But will keep posting updates and pictures for every 1000km... I'm of for a new Long trip in 2 weeks :-)
