Detailed: Dunlop Geomax MX53 tyre

Brand new intermediate to hard tyre released by Dunlop.

Ficeda Accessories, the Australian distributor of Dunlop, has introduced its brand-new intermediate to hard Geomax MX53 tyre, which is now available to pre-order.

Dunlop’s next-generation Geomax MX53 tyre is designed to offer more performance in a wider variety of terrains, where it excels on hard-packed tracks while also offering greater versatility in intermediate riding conditions.

With its upgraded technology, the MX53 will give riders more versatility with better performance. This is in part due to the all-new tread pattern on both the front and rear tyres.

A revolutionary horseshoe-shaped cluster of knobs has been added to the front tyre. This acts as a giant claw to dig into the ground and give the rider improved traction on hard-packed terrain and maximizes braking grip.

The Geomax MX53 now also features Dunlop’s patented Progressive Cornering Block technology on the front tyre. This technology, commonly known as block-in-a-block, allows enhanced flex on each knob resulting in ultimate grip and even more biting edges.

This bold new pattern of blocks has a hollowed-out portion on the centre tread, resulting in less stiffness in the centre of the tyre, giving riders better feedback and more compliance. Paired with a taller profile, this new MX53 front tyre provides gentler handling, more traction, higher lean angles and better maneuverability when compared to its predecessor.

Dunlop’s patented block-in-a-block technology on the rear tyre borrows from the success of the upgrades in technology added to the Geomax MX33, Dunlop’s soft-to-intermediate tyre.

Incorporating these block designs that have already proven successful now give the MX53 more biting edges, increased grip and enhanced flex on each individual knob. These elements all contribute to enhance durability and performance in harder terrains.

The compound that was chosen for the MX53 tyres has a high number of molecular polymer particles. This results in a higher fracture strength, meaning more durability. Dunlop has also added more fine carbon particles. The carbon particles are what give the Geomax tyres their legendary grip.

The Dunlop Geomax MX53 is due to be available at the end of the month. For more information, visit
