Motorcycle tires come in contact with various road surfaces every day, and their texture directly affects the driver's control and comfort of the vehicle! The choice of motorcycle tires will also be related to the driving quality and the driving experience of different types of motorcycles. In this issue, the editor will help you organize: motorcycle tires with different tire patterns, their main uses, pros and cons, I hope they can help everyone!
One, hot melt tire
Hot-melt tires are divided into: full-hot-melt and semi-hot-melt
1. Fully hot-melt tires are generally used in fierce motorcycle racing tracks. Due to the low melting temperature of hot-melt tires, after the fierce racing track, the tires will be heated and melted due to the high temperature caused by the friction on the ground, making the tires The grip becomes stronger and the corners come out faster. However, after the hot melt tire is softened, the sand and gravel on the road are easily embedded on the tire, which reduces the tire's grip and even side slips! This is why the motorcycles on the track have to change their tires halfway through!
But it is not a tire that works well on the track, and it works equally well on urban roads and mountain roads. Fully hot-melt tires will be very sticky after melting, and the sand and debris on the road will stick to the tires, which will reduce the tire's gripping ability and prone to skidding or puncture!
2. Our commonly used motorcycle tires can be classified as semi-hot-melt tires. Although their performance is not as outstanding as full-hot-melt tires, semi-hot-melt tires integrate the characteristics of various streets, and the degree of wear is also controlled within an acceptable range. , Has become the representative of cost performance in the market, and it is also the standard configuration of various manufacturers!
slip tires are also called: road tires
My car is also slippery when it leaves the factory. After the running-in period, the front and rear tires are all replaced. The reason is that the "too slippery" bikers go out on weekends and encounter more dirt roads or grass. Road is simply a torment!
Most models on the market are shipped with this tire. This tire can run on urban pavement roads! Due to the shallow tread pattern of road tires, it is as slippery and slippery as it is on grass and mud! Friends who like motorcycle tours, most people use sliding tires to go to motorcycle tours. When encountering muddy roads, slipping tires will make you crash! The editor recommends that if you are a motorcycle traveler, you should change to a "turtle tire" as soon as possible.
Three, off-road tires
Cross-country tires are also known as: pineapple tires
The characteristic of off-road tires is that the pattern groove is wide and deep, and the pattern block grounding area is small! It is widely used in professional rally cars and off-road vehicles for competitive purposes. When many off-road motorcycle players encounter soft roads or sand when driving on a field or forest road, the performance of this tire will be fully revealed, and some of the patterns will appear. The block is embedded in the sand, so that the grip of the tire becomes stronger, and it is not suitable for slipping!
Off-road tires are more suitable for driving on rugged roads and soft soil roads. Because of the strong pattern gripping ability, they are more suitable for running on these roads! However, off-road tires are not suitable for paved roads, with poor braking; poor turning; large vibration; long-term driving on paved roads will increase fuel consumption and accelerate tire wear!
Four, turtle tire
Turtle tires are also known as all-terrain tires
This kind of tire is widely used in non-professional rally cars! Also favored by many friends who like motorcycle travel! Compared with slippery tires, turtle-back tires have better grip on mud or sandy roads; compared with off-road tires, they can also be safely driven on paved roads, and they can also run on forest roads from time to time. More balanced tires!
But motorcycle friends who often run on the road and play off-road will also disdain this tire! If turtle tires are really so comprehensive, how can other tires mix?
