With Sport Force+, Mitas uses a new tread tire compound based on the latest findings of its research and development unit. Mitas Sport Force+ will be available on global markets starting in February 2015.
All sizes of Sport Force+ boast (W) speed index, allowing for speeds of more than 270 km/h (168 mph).
"Sport Force+ is the second generation of radial motorcycle tires made by Mitas. We have improved the tire tread compound to get an even more competitive sport on-road tire" said Ksenija Bitenc, managing director of Mitas Moto.
The new Sport Force+ radial motorcycle tires will be available in the following sizes as of February 2015:
The new Sport Force+ tire is the result of recent development activities, intensive testing and high-end elastomers built into a tire compound. Sport Force+ boasts superior performances throughout the tire service life achieved by using Strong Carcass Technology (SCT).
Sport Force+ delivers outstanding grip on different road surfaces, temperatures and conditions supported by OGT 3D-Optimum Groove Technology. Sport Force+ riders will appreciate easy and progressive cornering with maximum control and high-speed stability throughout the tire service life.
These characteristics were achieved by a combination of two different technologies, SCT and Finite Element Analyses (FEA), for definition of the tire footprint.
