E12 Rally Star Rear TT 20/80 ADV-size 140/80 x 18



The new E-12 Rally Star Rear Tyre in size 140 x 18 was developed for the arduous Enduro/Desert type rallies to complement the  E13 Rally front tyre.

Developed to meet the demands of serious rally competition events including Dakar and other all terrain challenges.

Based on the popular E09 Dakar tyre- the E12 Rally has a much grippier Green stripe compound and a slightly larger block pattern with more open tread than the E09.

The deep compact tread pattern and grippy Green compound make this tyre the absolute first pick for the most serious Adventure and Rally bike sector in NZ.

A  high performance tyre suitable for all conditions but giving maximum performance on hard packed stony ground and loose gravelly or moist conditions, yet still retaining excellent road manners and good wear rates for such a high performance tyre.

Recommended as the Premium  Rally / Adventure rear tyre for NZ conditions by Chris Birch.

TT = Tubed Type Tyre- HD 2mm or UHD 4mm Tubes recommended.

The E12 Rally rear is only available in size 140/80-18 and only as Tube Type option.-

Many large cc  KTM Adventure /Yamaha T7 etc  riders fit this 140/80 tyre size instead of the standard 150/70 x18 -including Chris Birch- All Large ADV KTMs 690s and above run this tyre size perfectly. – A 150/70 x 18 does not perform as well in the serious off-road terrain – due to its extra width.

NOTE: Limited E12 stock now available again -suggest pairing is with  E13 / E09 or C17 or C21 front depending on level of aggressiveness required.
