Every Dunlop motorcycle tire embodies the company’s dedication to extensive research, rigorous development and torturous testing, and the new line of Geomax tires are the latest motocross products that exemplify this uncompromising commitment.
The Geomax MX51, successor to the immensely popular D756 series, excels beyond the D756’s legendary performance, and is destined to create a new legend of its own. The MX51 is designed to excel in intermediate terrain while also delivering excellent performance in both soft terrain as well as hard-pack conditions, plus added durability. The Geomax MX31 supplants the D773 and sets new performance benchmarks in soft terrain, especially in sandy and muddy conditions. Both tires are aimed squarely at riders who compete on the racetrack, as well as serious enthusiasts who want the ultimate performance from their tires.
Dunlop engineers achieved a high level of performance across varied terrain through the adoption of carcass construction first unveiled in the D756RR racing tire. Additionally, engineers applied the compound and tread design technology developed through the extensive use of three-dimensional FEM (finite element modeling) and FEA (finite element analysis resulting in our new Geomax Reinforced Pattern™). This technology was then used to create a series of prototypes tested extensively throughout the 2008 AMA Supercross and Motocross series by Dunlop’s professional racers, including Honda Red Bull Racing’s Andrew Short and Davi Millsaps, and GEICO Honda’s Kevin Windham and his 2008 Supercross Lites East champion teammate Trey Canard. Further fine-tuning of the formula took place at Dunlop’s Huntsville Proving Grounds.
The MX51 and MX31 are available now from your Dunlop dealer.
