“Gravel, rocks and roadkill – here’s an awesome tyre knowing no fear. Whistle into town, come back home across the fields Steve McQueen style. Do some hooligan racing among friends on the neighbourhood dirt track. Or what about that camping trip to that place where the road ends you’ve been postponing all those years? The Bates Baja tires can handle it.”
Based on the Goodyear Grasshopper – and certified for speeds up to 190km/h (120mph) – these German-made combination tyres provide ample grip on the road with a tread pattern that will get you out of the deepest ruts off the road, and are the product of Bates’ long experience on diverse gravel, dirt, mud and highways on several continents.
It is produced to the highest technical standards and the design sits well with most vintage, bobber and chopper style bikes, and could give an extra twist to that off-the-wall vintage rigid project you’re building.
They are tubeless, for front and rear fitment and are both DOT and E4 approved.
