With the purchase of 3 or 4 Dunlop Geomax Tires, also receive a set of 2 "Geomax" tire stickers per tire. *For additional details, terms and conditions, please see linked Dunlop Geomax Rebate Card. Geomax MX51 helps deliver enhanced grip, added tread longevity and a wider range of terrain applications, reaching farther into hard-pack conditions. Profile design provides more tread volume (greater land / sea ratio) in the shoulders for excellent cornering grip and a more open center-tread area for straight-line grip. Recessed biting edges in shoulder tread blocks yield enhanced traction for greater grip in corners and ruts throughout a wide range of terrain conditions. Tie-bar design connects and reinforces the tread blocks for greater tread stiffness, yielding improved intermediate-to-hard terrain performance. Recessed design in the area between tread blocks gives the tire improved compliance for enhanced ride comfort. Knobs are placed in a unique "cross-stitch" shoulder-block distribution for enhanced traction and grip in intermediate-to-hard riding conditions. Larger-radius tread block base for strength and enhanced tread longevity. Tire Specifications: Load / speed index: 63M. Recommended rim: 2.15". Overall diameter: 27.13". Overall width: 5.12". Full tread depth: 20/32". Maximum load (pounds) / PSI: N/A.
"Put this on my KX500 for the weekend. Figured I would get 2 days worth of riding out of it. Well, its been 2 days and it still has around 60 percent tread on it. No knobs are ripped off of it at all, just some small chunks taken out. Haven't seen a tyre that could take the abuse like this one. Saw another guy on a CR500 with the same tire in the same condition. No complaints there.
Seems to hook up okay, maybe a little better than the old 756, but there is alot of spin in those 5th gear runs, and it breaks loose on the road more often than other tyres I have tried. Tends to slip in the corners on hard pack surfaces too.
I ride in the coal region of pennsylvania, known for its massive coal hills. Ive gone through new tires in one weekend without even trying, but I've been abusing the heck out of this one and it just takes it.
All in all, I'd buy this tyre again for trail riding and climbing, but pass on it for racing."
