Mitas, part of Trelleborg Group, has become the original equipment tyre supplier to Spanish off-road motorcycle manufacturer GasGas. The Mitas ET-01 trial tyre was selected by GasGas as original equipment for its new models Trial Contact ES with electric start and Trial School.

Ksenija Bitenc, director of Mitas Motorcycle Tyres and Tubes Product Area, said; “Mitas and GasGas have developed an excellent partnership and we are glad that Mitas ET-01 tyres have been chosen as original equipment for two new models of GasGas trial motorcycles.

“Mitas is also strengthening the co-operation with GasGas in North America where we are a partner of the 2017 GasGas Test Ride Tour.”

GasGas will use Mitas ET-01 2.75-21 (front), ET-01 4.00-18 X-PRO (rear) and ET-01 4.00-18 (rear) tyres.

The ET-01 2.75-21 is suitable for riding on both maintained and unmaintained roads. The tyre is designed for use in trial competitions and is also suitable for enduro competitions where classical off-road tyres for enduro and motocross are not permitted.

The ET-01 4.00-18 X-PRO is the latest trial racing tyre and it features a new carcass construction with an extra soft tread compound, providing good grip across a wide range of terrains.

ET-01 4.00-18 is recommended for novice trial competition and for trial training.
