Tyre test Michelin Anakee Wild
Permalink  
 


Trying out a new back tyre for a run to Spain plus 5 days of rocky trails. My normal tyre for this has been a Heidenau K60, 130/80 x 18 but it's getting a bit worn out. My lovely knobbly Maxxis IT would be toast after the 1000 miles of 65mph tar plus maybe 400 of track so I'm experimenting with a Michelin Anakee Wild 130/80 x 18. Looks plenty knobbly enough, more than the Heidi. We'll see how it wears and I'll report back...

The wheel weights are to counteract the Tubliss beadlock. The tyres themselves wouldn't need such huge lumps of brass!

Front tyre will stay Mitas 644 Army Special. The front Mich doesn't have enough side lug for my preference, but this will probably limit my cornering lean so those chicken strips will probably have to be shaved off with a knife
