Are you a road warrior? Do you love to saddle up your long distance cruiser and just eat up the miles? Dunlop has released a new set of tires made just for you. The new Elite 4 tires, made of Multi-Tread rear tire technology, were designed with the long distance rider in mind. And since they come in a variety of sizes, they’re designed to fit a wide range of bikes new and old.

Dunlop built the new Elite 4 tires in both bias and radial construction, to appeal to many different types of bikes. The rear tire’s construction gets longer tread life by using a tough center compound, while the outside edges are composed of lateral compounds to increase cornering grip. Currently Dunlop is the only tire offering this Multi-Tread composition in the cruiser and touring market.

And for those die hard riders who go out no matter the weather, you’ll be relieved to know the Elite 4s have a new tread pattern designed to provide grip in both dry and wet conditions. This new tread pattern wears evenly front center to shoulder, and minimizes road noise, giving you peace of mind and a more peaceful journey. Additionally, the new tread pattern has indicators built into the composite of the tire, that wear away when they reach 1/32-inch tread depth.

So what are you waiting for? With a new set of Dunlop Elite 4 tires, you'll be ready to tackle a cross country trip or three before needing the next set. MSRP ranges from $163.59 to $317.71, depending on size. For more details, go to dunlopmotorcycletires.com .
