Dunlop chosen by Beta for 2018 Trial range

Beta, one of the leading manufacturers of trials and off-road motorcycles, has chosen Dunlop tyres for their latest Evo 2T 2-stroke and Evo 4T 4-stroke range.

Beta’s objective with their Evo 2T and 4T family was to develop bikes that can cope with the demands of championship winners , but also offer accessible performance to amateurs and less experienced riders.

The Dunlop D803GP will be supplied to Beta in both 80/100R21 and 120/100R18 sizes. Created as a championship-calibre trials tire, the D803 also delivers in a wide range of conditions for off-road leisure and competitive riding. After testing by the Italian motorcycle manufacturer, the Dunlop D803GP was chosen due to its compliant carcass construction which helps to deliver excellent traction.

Other features of the Dunlop D803GP include an advanced silica blended compound which is designed to offer high grip levels in wet or cold conditions and a tread and construction that offers a faster turning response which perfectly complements the agile Beta Evo.

“This new technical collaboration is significant as both companies have a long history in competition. Dunlop tyres were first used in competition nearly 130 years ago, and Beta was formed 112 years ago. The experience of both companies has been combined to form a new partnership based around the proven trial-winning performance of the Dunlop D803GP” stated Miguel Morais, Original Equipment Manager, Dunlop Motorcycle EMEA.
