Dual Sport Tires
Your next adventure is going to need the appropriate tires! And BTO Sports has the wide variety of Adventure/Dual Sport Tires to get you where you want to go! For example, the Michelin Anakee Wild tire will provide you with all of the grip you need for your next ride on your adventure bike. Inspired by Michelin race winning Dakar desert motocross tire, the Anakee Wild is a true dual purpose radial tire that is 50% off road and 50% on-road that uses an all new compound that provides an exceptional grip on all surfaces.
The innovative tread pattern is perfect for those extended adventure rides that go from street to dirt. The offset blocks and curved tread grooves provide true off-road performance, especially in doft and challenging conditions where you need maximum traction. In addition to Michelin's proven motocross tire technology, the front/rear casing of the Anakee Wild Adventure tires ensure impeccable on-road capability to give you the stability you need. Looking for the best of both worlds, the Anakee Wild tires will keep you going on your motorcycle adventures anywhere they take you.
Dual Sport Boots
What makes for a good dual-sport, adventure or sport-touring boot? Define these tasks, and you will define how this type of boot should function. Touring, especially when done in a sporting manner, involves travel at greater velocities, which demands a boot that offers protection and long-distance comfort in a variety of weather conditions. The matter of fit and comfort is quite subjective, but we have found that a comfortable boot flexes well and does not restrict the ability to squat down to check tire pressure or pick up a glove that has fallen off the seat.
It likewise allows the ankle to flex for easy shifting, braking and walking up and down stairs. The sole should not be so thick or stiff as to detract from the “feel” of the brake pedal. Expect a shifter pad atop the left boot. Some makers place a pad atop each boot for symmetry, and because some classic bikes shift on the right with the brake lever on the left.
For protection, you’ll want strategic padding around the toes and ankle bones. The majority of riders still wear dark colors, so for visibility we recommend you wear something lighter or even reflective. All but two of the boots we test include reflective material, but each is available only in black. From testing these boots we suggest that you wear long socks with them, socks that are taller than the boots to prevent the chafing that can occur when the boots’ top edges abrade your calves. Socks can also make the boots easier to pull on and get off, while being more comfortable all-around.
As for putting them on, it’s easier when the zippers are located on the inner-facing sides of the boots rather than the outer. This way, you can sit down, swing one boot atop your other knee and the zipper will be right there. When the zipper is on the outer-facing surface of the boot, you have to tilt your leg at an awkward angle to deal with it. Taller boots offer potentially greater protection from wind, weather and abrasion, but likewise become heavier and potentially bulky.
The Adventure/Dual Sport parts we have here at BTO Sports are wildly popular, as they not only are almost assuredly lee expensive than the OEM replacement parts, but usually perform better! For this reason alone, engine replacement products are flying off the BTO shelves. Equipped with today’s latest Adventure/Dual Sport parts, you can crank up your bike and hit top speeds in the blink of an eye… and tell your friends all about it at the same time- all from the seat of your moving bike.
