The Mefo Explorer is a dual sport tire that provides excellent all-around performance for riders that spend their time riding split equally between the pavement and the dirt. You will experience excellent traction on the black top with this responsive tire in both wet and dry conditions. When hitting the trail enjoy the reliable grip provided by the aggressive large shoulder lugs that bite, even in mud. The bias ply construction increases durability, handles tough off-road conditions and gives you a comfortable ride. Discover how the Mefo Explorer can take your motorcycle adventure to the next level of riding confidence.

Customers have reported to us that a set of Explorers can routinely take about 7,000-9,000 miles of use under the harsh adventure-touring conditions of Alaska. With secure, stable handling on dirt or wet pavement and high mileage performance, the Explorer has excellent all around versatility. Recommended for 50% street and 50% dirt riding. A great tire that will go anywhere and get you home again! DOT-approved.

I bought MEFO Explorer tires for my KLR and my wife's DRZ400S when we were leaving for 4000mile trip to Newfoundland. They did excellent over the entire trip, both highway and gravel. Just bought another set.

Be careful though and read the description of the item!!!! The tires are made from very hard rubber and have to be properly inflated. After about 4000miles my rear tire developed multiple cracks due to improper tire pressure (see the pic.) - this happened only on one (heavier) bike. (issue not covered by warranty)

Like I mentioned it is a tire made of hard rubber so it's quite hard to install. Another thing I noticed is the noise coming from the from tire when riding above 40mph - at first i could not figure out where it was coming from and I got scared that one of the bearings goes bad - luckily it was just the tire - so keep that in mind when riding on those.

Bottom-line - if you are going for a long trip (about 6000-7000 miles) and do not want to spend time on tire replacement and carry a spare with you - this is a tire for you - Totally recommend! (Posted on 11/14/2014)
